Unfortunately, one death case has been reported today.

Updating the figures for Covid-19 clusters, Dr Noor Hisham said no new cases were recorded at the Jalan Othman Market in Petaling Jaya, which is now under enhanced movement control order (EMCO) and saw 28 individuals tested positive.

Some 655 individuals, or 4.9% of the tested individuals, tested positive for Covid-19, from which 559 or 85.3% of the positive cases showed no symptoms.

The number of new screenings in this cluster is 168, raising to 13,636 the number of individuals tested from among the 19,771 people identified across 370 schools.
