Malaysia’s Covid-19 numbers continue to show signs of improvement as the Health Ministry announced the end of the Kuching Church cluster today.

One of the earliest Covid-19 clusters in Malaysia, the Kuching Church cluster was first detected on 15th March with the passing of the church’s pastor – the country’s second Covid-19 death.

The spread of this cluster was attributed to a 3-day church assembly that took place from 26th to 28th February in Kuching, Sarawak.

It was also one of the biggest Covid-19 clusters in the country, spreading to five generations and infecting 191 which ultimately led to the deaths of three people.

The Health Ministry also announced the end of the Cheras Security Guard cluster which spread to 19 individuals in the Klang Valley.

This cluster was first detected among Nepali security guards at a Cheras shopping centre in early May. No deaths were reported from this cluster.

As of 23rd June, three new cases and zero deaths are reported from the Pedas cluster in Negeri Sembilan (1 new case) and Meninggal di Rumah (MDR) cluster in Sabah (2 new cases).
