KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia today recorded its highest number of Covid-19 recoveries since the implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO), with 333 patients being discharged from hospital.

In a statement, Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said 307 of the recovered are foreigners and 26 are Malaysians.

With this, he said, the total cumulative number of recoveries in Malaysia stands at 7,733 or 90.9 per cent of the total Covid-19 cases recorded in the country.

Meanwhile, Dr Noor Hisham said 11 new cases were registered as of noon today, bringing the tally of infections in Malaysia to 8,505 – 651 of which are active cases.

He said of today’s new cases, one is imported and the rest are local transmissions involving six foreigners and four locals.

Six of the foreigners are in Kuala Lumpur and four in Negri Sembilan.

Two of the Kuala Lumpur cases are linked to a construction site cluster; while the four Negri Sembilan cases originate from the Pedas cluster and the cleaning company cluster.

Of the four cases involving Malaysians, three had close contact with a Covid-19 patient in Sarawak; and one was detected during pre-surgery screening at Putrajaya Hospital, who was later transferred to the Sungai Buloh Hospital.

Overall, Dr Noor Hisham said four cases are in intensive care, though none requires the ventilator.

No fatality was recorded today.
