COVID-19 | The Health Ministry today reported 17,352 new Covid-19 cases.

The Klang Valley's combined daily case count has gone down to levels not seen since late June and today it is half of the daily case count reported in East Malaysia.

Sarawak, with a vaccination rate that rivals the Klang Valley, is seeing a continued uptrend in new cases and hospitalisation. [see chart below]

There were 268 out of 17,352 new cases in Category 4 or 5 (require supplementary oxygen). Of this group, 28.7 percent are fully vaccinated. 

As of yesterday, the R-naught has dropped to 0.95, down from 1.04 a month ago. An R-naught of less than 1.00 suggests that the spread of Covid-19 is decelerating.

However, there are places where the R-naught is above 1.00 - Sarawak, Perlis, Johor, Terengganu, Penang, Perak, Kelantan and Sabah.

Active Covid-19 cases are on an eight-day downward trend, while the number of patients requiring intensive care is trending down slowly as well.
