KUALA LUMPUR, May 2 — New coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases in Malaysia shot back into the three-digit range for the first time since April 16 today, nearly all of which were local transmissions.
Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah reported 105 new Covid-19 patients today versus 116 full recoveries as of noon.
In his daily Covid-19 briefing, the Health D-G also disclosed that just 11 of the new cases were imported.
However, no deaths were reported today, leaving the country’s death toll at 103.
The government announced yesterday that all economic sectors save for those that rely on crowds will be allowed to reopen conditionally on Monday.
