KUCHING, May 27: Malaysia’s numbers of Covid-19 positive cases has reduced to two figures today at 15 cases and no deaths reported.

Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said this was the lowest daily figure since the movement control order (MCO) was enforced on Mar 18.

“Of the 15 cases today, six were imported from overseas while nine were local transmissions. Out of the nine, four were foreigners. This is also the lowest single digit of nine local transmissions,” Dr Noor Hisham said at the ministry’s daily Covid-19 media briefing in Putrajaya.

He added that total number of positive cases now stands at 7,619 cases since the pandemic began.

“A total of 42 patients have recovered and discharged in the last 24-hours, bringing the total cumulative discharged cases to 6,083 cases. That brings a recovery rate of 79.8 percent of all cases.

Currently, there are 1,421 active cases being treated in hospitals nationwide. Six positive Covid-19 cases are still in the intensive care unit (ICU), out of which, four are on ventilator support,” he added.
