The Petaling district has been categorised as a Covid-19 red zone again after 13 new cases were reported in the area.

According to the Health Ministry, the area jumped from 39 active cases on 3 May to 52 active cases on 4 May.

This means that, including Petaling, there are now 10 districts across the country categorised as red zones (FYI, an area is categorised as a red zone when it has more than 40 active cases).

In Kuala Lumpur, there are four districts still considered as red zones with the number of active cases being above 40: Sri Petaling (48), Ibu Kota (156), Kampung Bharu (67), and Batu (71)

Meanwhile, five districts have been recorded as green zones, a.k.a Covid-19 free: Alam Damai, Bangsar, Bukit Damansara, Kepong, and Mont Kiara. 

KL’s remaining 20 districts are currently yellow zones.

While KL is starting to generally clear up, Penang has become the latest state to be recorded as completely Covid-19 free with all districts categorised as green zones on 4 May.

Penang joins Perlis, Kedah, Kelantan, Perak, and Labuan as Covid-19 free areas, meaning that there are now five states and one federal territory in Malaysia with zero active Covid-19 cases.

This brings the number of green zones in the country to 111 as of 4 May.

While we celebrate this achievement, we’d like to remind you that the National Security Council continues to urge Malaysians to stay home unless you have extremely important matters to attend to outside, or are involved in the business sectors which have recently reopened.
