Modified 10 Jun 2021, 7:30 am

Malaysia had performed fewer Covid-19 tests last week compared to the week before, even though the Covid-19 situation in the country has yet to improve significantly.

This has led to the test positivity rate - a measure of whether enough testing is being done compared to the size of an outbreak - to increase slightly from 6.89 percent (May 23 to 29) to 7.28 percent (May 30 to June 5).
