Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, director-general of health, said 4,984 cases were recovered today, surpassing the number of new cases.
“Of the 4,087 new cases recorded today, 72 or 1.8% are in categories three, four, and five while another 4,015 cases or 98.2% are in categories one and two,” he said in a statement today.
According to him, further information on Malaysia’s current COVID-19 status will be posted to the COVIDNOW website at https: /covidnow.moh.gov.my and data will be updated daily at midnight.
His announcement today also details the healthcare measures that must be implemented during the monsoon floods and COVID-19 pandemic, including the new standards that must be followed during the rescue and evacuation process until placement in flood relief centres (PPS).
“The flood evacuees will first be screened for the symptoms and risk factors for COVID-19 before being allowed to enter the PPS. Those with the symptoms must be screened to avoid the emergence of a COVID-19 cluster among the flood evacuees.
“The positive cases will be isolated at the COVID-19 Quarantine and Treatment Centres (PKRC) or Special PPV or the same PPV but in different blocks.
“Those flood victims with symptoms but found to be negative for COVID-19 during the health screening need to be quarantined too,” he said.
