Selangorians worried about the state’s rise in Covid-19 red zones can breathe a sigh of relief as the latest data released by the Health Ministry shows that Petaling district is now a yellow zone.

As of 12pm on 3rd May, Petaling district records 39 active Covid-19 cases after the previous day’s 43 active cases that had put it in the red.

From mid-April, Malaysia has been exhibiting success in flattening the curve of Covid-19 infections as the number of green and yellow zones increased across the nation.

However, numbers from 2nd May indicated a jump in cases that pushed both Petaling and Gombak in Selangor into the red zone.

With the latest numbers, there are 9 Covid-19 red zones remaining in Malaysia:

  1. Lembah Pantai – 221 active cases
  2. Kuching – 131 active cases
  3. Kepong – 96 active cases
  4. Titiwangsa – 95 active cases
  5. Gombak – 87 active cases
  6. Kluang – 67 active cases
  7. Hulu Langat – 48 active cases
  8. Seremban – 45 active cases
  9. Kota Samarahan – 47 active cases

The number of yellow zones have increased to 62, while green zones are slightly lower at 86.

Malaysia currently has a total of 6,298 Covid-19 cases where 1,780 are active cases.
