Detention centre and Pedas clusters push new Covid-19 cases to 93

KUALA LUMPUR (June 3): The country today recorded 93 new Covid-19 cases, the highest in five days, Malaysiakini reported today.

The spike was contributed by the discovery of more infections at the Bukit Jalil Immigration Detention Depot in Kuala Lumpur and the outbreak linked to a chicken farm in Pedas, Negeri Sembilan.

"Ninety-three new cases were reported, bringing the cumulative Covid-19 cases to 7,970 cases," Health Ministry director-general Noor Hisham Abdullah told a press conference today.

He said only two of the 93 new Covid-19 cases involved Malaysians while the 91 others were foreigners.

According to Malaysiakini, the largest source was the Bukit Jalil immigration detention depot with 55 new cases while the Pedas cluster recorded 36 new cases.

The two cases involving Malaysians were from the tahfiz school and market clusters respectively.
