COVID-19 | The Health Ministry has recorded 9,180 new Covid-19 cases up to noon today, setting another record-high in Malaysia's worsening Covid-19 situation.

The previous record was 9,020 cases recorded on May 29.

The situation is no better in Selangor, where large portions of the state are under the enhanced movement control order (MCO) since July 3.

The state has 4,400 cases today, surpassing its record yesterday of 4,152 cases.

Overall, cases in the Klang Valley account for 61.9 percent (5,687 cases) of the national tally.

In a statement today, Health Ministry director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said the rise in cases in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor was due to increased targeted screening at areas under enhanced MCO and in factories, as before.

"It is also found that many individuals in the Klang Valley have come forward themselves to private clinics to undergo Covid-19 testing.

"They are among those at high risk, such as having symptoms or are close contacts (of known Covid-19 patients).

"The Health Ministry will continue contact tracing activities and isolation of Covid-19 patients to prevent the disease's spread in the community," he said.

Meanwhile, the number of patients who required intensive care or intubation also increased, with new records set for both figures.

  • Active cases: 80,665
  • Patients in ICUs: 959
  • Intubated: 465
