According to the Health Director-General Datuk Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah since Malaysia moved to reopen the economy under the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) the country had witnessed a downward trend in infections among members of the public.

The DG explained that between May 4 and May 27, only around 22%  of identified cases had involved Malaysian citizens, while some 77% of cases were recorded among foreigners including undocumented migrants which are currently being held at the nation’s immigration detention camps.

The Health Ministry (MOH) extends congratulations and gratitude towards the entire nation in our cooperative efforts to fight against the pandemic.

The DG said that if Malaysians continue to abide by Covid-19 guidelines as well as maintain hygiene and social distancing practices, our victory against the coronavirus is assured.

If we were to look into our modeling in our predictions, certainly we have did our best in the past and more importantly, our projection has shown that we will reach single digits or lower double digits… We have changed our strategy from MCO to CMCO, so for the past 24 or 25 days from 4th of May, we have seen the success of the CMCO.

Health Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah

As of writing, Malaysia’s total recorded cases stand at 7,629 with 1,345 of those cases still active.

More than 6,000 have reportedly recovered and as of date, 115 people have died from Covid-19 in the country.
