COVID-19 | The Health Ministry today reported 18,547 new Covid-19 cases.

For the second day in a row, Sarawak (3,200, 63.6 percent of population fully vaccinated) has reported more cases than the entire Klang Valley combined.

Based on data shared by Sarawak minister for Local Government and Housing Dr Sim Kui Hian today, most of the new cases (99.75) percent are in Category 1 or 2 (no symptoms or mild symptoms).

  • Active cases: 252,002
  • Patients in ICU: 1,318 (977 confirmed; 341 probable)
  • Intubated: 735 (447 confirmed; 288 probable)

While hospitalisation of Covid-19 patients in the Klang Valley is trending down, the opposite is true for Sarawak and regions with lower vaccination rates such as Johor, Sabah and Penang [see chart below].

Deaths

A total of 311 Covid-19 fatalities have been reported today, bringing the death toll to 18,802. This includes 91 today who have no history of chronic illness.

The deaths have been reported in Selangor (55), Johor (53), Sabah (45), Kedah (43), Penang (34), Perak (20), Kelantan (14), Terengganu (12), Kuala Lumpur (10), Malacca (10), Pahang (5), Sarawak (5), Negeri Sembilan (3) and Perlis (2).

Ninety-three of the deceased had died before being brought to a hospital, mainly in Selangor (23), Kedah (22) and Sabah (8).

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin had said yesterday that there is a backlog in reporting Covid-19 deaths in the Klang Valley that would take weeks to clear, so it does not necessarily reflect the current situation.

Clusters

A total of 1,465 out of 4,960 clusters are still active. This includes the 39 new clusters reported today. Overall, these clusters account for 1,833 (9.9 percent) of today's cases.

Of the new clusters, 23 are classified as workplace clusters and 13 are community clusters.

High-risk groups, a private education facility, and a detention centre each added one new cluster to today's reporting.
