COVID-19 | Malaysia has recorded 12,366 in the 24 hours up to noon today and 93 deaths.

Cases in Selangor exceed 5,000 once again with 5,524 cases reported, while Kuala Lumpur recorded 1,580 cases.

Cases in Kedah is also high with 701 recorded today, just slightly below yesterday's record-high of 701 cases.

Meanwhile, in Sabah, Covid-19 cases in the last seven days averaged 515 cases per day including the 657 cases today.

This means it no longer meets one of the criteria for Phase 2 of the National Recovery Plan (average 479 cases per day over a week for Sabah), though the government had said states that have already entered Phase 2 would not revert to Phase 1 even if cases increase.

  • Active cases: 133,703
  • Patients in ICUs: 924
  • Intubated: 448

On a more positive note, the number of Covid-19 deaths today is the lowest in more than a week after eight consecutive days of triple-digit figures.

Nevertheless, the number of ICU admissions and patients requiring mechanical ventilation has increased over the past few days.

Deaths

There were 93 fatalities today. This is the lowest since July 11 where 91 deaths were reported.

The 93 deaths bring the total death toll to 7,241.

Of these, 31 of the new deaths are recorded in Selangor, 16 in Johor, 9 in Malacca, 8 in Kedah, 7 in Pahang, 5 in Penang, 5 in Negeri Sembilan, 5 in Perak, 2 in Kuala Lumpur, 2 in Sabah, 2 in Sarawak, and 1 in Terengganu.
