KUALA LUMPUR (May 29): Malaysia recorded a spike of 103 Covid-19 cases today, including a new cluster involving a cleaning services company, Malaysiakini reported today.

“The spike in new cases reported today is due to cases involving non-citizens. Of the 103, seven are imported cases that got infected abroad.

“Of the 96 cases of local transmission, 84 are non-Malaysian citizens whereby 53 are from the Pedas cluster and 24 from a janitorial services company cluster.

“Therefore, there are only 12 cases of local transmission involving Malaysians,” said Health Ministry director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah (above) at his daily press conference in Putrajaya.

The Malaysiakini report quoted him saying the cleaning services cluster was detected by a private clinic when the patients were sent by their employer for testing.

Of the 150 workers tested, 126 got negative results.

Malaysiakini said among those who tested positive, 20 lived in a hostel in Kuala Langat and are now being treated at the Sungai Buloh hospital.

Another four who live in a flat in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan, are now being treated at the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital in Seremban.
