Malaysia records three new Covid-19 cases, totaled at 8,637 cases

PUTRAJAYA (June 29):New COVID-19 cases in Malaysia returned to a single digit today with three cases, bringing the cumulative total to 8,637, including 182 active cases, said Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

He said two of the new cases were local transmissions while one case was imported.

"The imported case involves a Malaysian who was infected overseas while the two local transmission cases are also Malaysians,” he told a press conference on COVID-19 here today.

Elaborating on the local transmissions, he said one was detected during a pre-procedure screening of a blood cancer patient in Selangor and the other was from a work place screening at a market in Sandakan, Sabah.

Noor Hisham said four cases were still being treated in the intensive care unit (ICU), with one requiring ventilator support.
