The sudden spike in new COVID-19 cases today alone has gotten Malaysians worried about a possible 2nd Wave of the deadly virus - with +78 NEW cases reported.
Malaysia Total COVID-19 Positive Cases: 7,137
This is the first time in 10 days since the number has gone over 50.
Out of the 78 cases reported today, 25 of them were reported as local imports while another 25 were from the Bukit Jalil Immigration Depot cluster.
This is adding on to the 35 cases reported yesterday from that place.
Another factor that we find disturbing is that despite Malaysia recording over 80% of recoveries, today's +63 NEW Recovery cases, there are more reported infected cases.
Malaysia Total COVID-19 Recovery Cases: 5,859
Also, today we received a report of +1 NEW Death - a 65-year-old man with a background of diabetes, hypertension and kidney disease, who passed away Sg Buloh Hospital.
Malaysia Total COVID-19 Death Cases: 115
With Hari Raya just 2 days away, we must continue to urge everyone to REFRAIN from "Balik Kampung" during this time.
