26 May Malaysia had the highest daily increase in infections, with 7,478 new Covid-19 cases reported
Malaysia on Wednesday (May 26) reported 7,478 new coronavirus cases, its highest daily rise in infections since the start of the pandemic.
With Malaysia once again registering a new record for daily Covid-19 cases, health director-general Noor Hisham Abdullah warned that the next two weeks are critical as the worst may still come.
He said the Malaysian public must prepare for the worst following a continuous surge in new cases.
“The rise in cases started on April 1 and could trigger a vertical surge. We need to prepare for the worst. Please help us by staying at home. Only together we can break the chain of infection,” he said in a Twitter post yesterday.
Dr Noor Hisham advised the public to stay at home and comply strictly with the standard operating procedure in case of an emergency or attendance at work.
The Health Ministry has discovered 12 new cases of the B1351 variant from South Africa in Kedah, Perlis, Selangor and Johor.
