COVID-19 | The Health Ministry today reported 15,669 new cases as the Klang Valley reached a four-day high in fresh infections. 

Sarawak recorded 118.55 new cases per 100,000 people, which is the highest, followed by Penang (99.28) and Perak (66.42) in third place by a wide margin.

While hospitalisation of Covid-19 patients in Sarawak is still trending up over the past two weeks, its death rate is among the lowest in the country at three deaths per 100,000 people over the same period, according to the CovidNow website.

Sarawak has the third-highest vaccination rate in the country.

As of yesterday, the R-naught was 0.98 for the whole country. An R-naught that is less than 1.00 suggests that the spread of Covid-19 was slowing down.

The only regions where the R-naught was less than 1.00 are Selangor, Sabah, Malacca, Kuala Lumpur, Labuan, Putrajaya, and Kedah.

Some data for today will only be available on the Health Ministry's CovidNow tracker and Github repository after 11.59pm.

This includes the number of active cases and deaths. That means they will only be reported in the media the following day.

  • Patients in ICU: 1,266 [954 positive; 312 suspected]
  • Intubated: 689 [432 positive; 257 suspected]
