COVID-19 | The Health Ministry today reported 7,097 new Covid-19 cases with the Klang Valley still contributing the most number of new infections.

Selangor saw 3,119 new Covid-19 cases, the second consecutive day where fresh infections numbered above 3,000 for the state.

Kuala Lumpur recorded a four-digit increase with 1,005 new infections. It was also a four-digit increase yesterday.

Negeri Sembilan witnessed a surge with 788 new cases, the highest in 19 days.

Meanwhile, Pahang, which entered Phase 2 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) on July 5, has regressed.

The state needed to maintain its new daily number of Covid-19 cases under 206 in order to qualify for Phase 2 but the seven-day average of new cases for the state has risen to 224.

The number of active cases are continuing on a 13-day uptrend, while the number of patients under intensive care have reached a new record.

  • Active cases: 74,344
  • Patients in ICUs: 948
  • Intubated: 441

Breakdown by state:

  • Selangor (3,119)
  • Kuala Lumpur (1,005)

The R-naught for the country has climbed to 1.09. The figure has been steadily rising since a recent low of 0.90 seen on June 12. 

A R-naught of more than 1.00 suggests that the spread of Covid-19 was accelerating. 

At the state level, Pahang, notably, had a R-naught of 1.18, which suggests the spread of Covid-19 in the state was not slowing down.

The only regions where the R-naught figure was less than 1.00 are Perak, Johor, Terengganu, Labuan, Sarawak, Kelantan and Perlis.

There were 91 fatalities today, bringing the death toll to 5768.
