There were 192 imported cases involving 178 Malaysians among the new infections, while 50 were in Categories 3, 4, and 5.

Four additional clusters have been detected, and the current national infectivity rate (R-nought) value is 0.93.

Meanwhile, according to Perak health committee chairman Mohd Akmal Kamaruddin, agencies that provide umrah trips in Ipoh must notify individuals returning to the country to follow the home quarantine requirements rigorously.

When they return home, they need to isolate themselves in a room for seven days.

He said there had been cases where the people took their quarantine order lightly, which could cause a spread of Covid-19.

We have received reports that some people had welcomed guests to their house and hugged them. Some even watched TV with their family in the living room.

It really takes effort to get people to self-isolate, and I do hope that those who come back from umrah have the discipline to do so,” he said.
