COVID-19 | The Health Ministry today reported 6,988 new Covid-19 cases.

As a seven-day average, the number of new Covid-19 cases has been trending up and further away from the 4,000 daily case number target to enter Phase 2 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP).

  • Active cases: 65,453
  • Patients in ICUs: 917
  • Intubated: 445

As of last night, the R-naught figure for Malaysia has risen to 1.05, up from a recent low of 0.90 on June 12. An R-naught of more than 1.00 suggests that the spread of Covid-19 was accelerating.

The only region showing any significant reduction in Covid-19 spread is Terengganu (0.67).
