COVID-19 | The country today saw another record high of new Covid-19 infections, breaching 13,000 new cases in one day for the first time.

The Health Ministry today reported 13,215 new Covid-19 cases, setting a new record high for the third consecutive day.

It's also the third day in a row where new cases are in the five digits.

  • Active cases: 108,369
  • Patients in ICUs: 885
  • Intubated: 432

Selangor also broke 6,000 new cases in a day for the first time, registering a new record high of 6,120.

Negeri Sembilan also saw a record high of 1,603 after already setting a new record yesterday with 1,537 cases.

Likewise, Kedah and Penang also broke records, registering 695 and 509 new cases respectively.

Previously, Kedah's record was 544 new cases and Penang's record was 421 cases, both on May 28.

Both Penang and Pahang have regressed from the threshold needed to be in Phase 2 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP).

Penang's seven-day average of new daily Covid-19 cases stood at 250, above the threshold of 217 while Pahang's average is 288, above the limit of 206.

Sabah, Sarawak, Perak, Terengganu, Kelantan and Perlis are still within the threshold that qualifies them for Phase 2, which allows more businesses to operate but most other restrictions remain.

Finance Minister Tengku Zafrul Abdul Aziz had said states that have entered Phase 2 won't be reversed back to the previous phase.
