KUALA LUMPUR (April 22): The number of Covid-19 infections in Kuala Lumpur exceeded the 1,000-mark with the tally at 1,021 cases — the second highest in the country among all states and federal territories as of noon yesterday.

According to the latest statistics released by the Ministry of Health (MoH), the number of active cases in the capital city was at 535, up from 523 on Monday.

Kuala Lumpur’s Cheras district, which is a red zone, recorded 43 active cases as at noon yesterday, up from 39 cases on Monday.

Lembah Pantai, the nation's top Covid-19 hotspot, has 347 active cases, followed by Kepong (87) and Titiwangsa (58).

Red zones, said the ministry, are those in which the health districts have more than 41 Covid-19 cases while those with 21 to 41 cases are categorised as orange zones, yellow zones (one to 20 cases), and green zones (zero cases recorded).

The number of active cases is derived from subtracting the number of deaths and recovered cases from the cumulative figure of infected individuals.

The ministry said today, there were 5,482 positive cases and 2,041 active cases nationwide as at noon yesterday.

Other red zones in the country with more than 100 active cases include Kuching in Sarawak with 217, Petaling in Selangor (106) and Seremban in Negeri Sembilan (100).
