There were 15 positive cases reported in Kuala Lumpur, where an enhanced movement control order (EMCO) has been implemented.
The cumulative number of confirmed cases in the capital city climbed to 1,170, the second highest among the states and federal territories after Selangor, where there were 1,394 cases.
The number of infections in Kuala Lumpur had gone up by 466 cases so far this month, from 704 as at end-March.
For the other three health districts in Kuala Lumpur, Kepong’s active cases were at 76 versus 181 cumulative confirmed infections, followed by Titiwangsa's 54 active cases versus 149 confirmed infections, while Cheras had 33 active cases versus 98 confirmed infections.
Nationwide, the ministry said today, there were 5,780 Covid-19 positive cases across Malaysia as at noon yesterday.
