PUTRAJAYA (Oct 20): The third Covid-19 wave, which has seen a surge in cases in Selangor since the end of September, is due to the influx of returnees from Sabah, Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah (pictured) said.
He said the first cluster reported in Selangor was the Jalan Apas Cluster on Sept 28, involving families returning from Sabah.
He said the increase in local transmissions in Selangor became evident from Oct 2 and has continued to record consistent increase until today.
“Of the 26 active clusters recorded in Selangor, eight clusters are related to travellers returning from Sabah.
“The daily increase in new cases and clusters in Selangor is also due to the population density and high movement rate,” he told a media conference on COVID-19 developments at the Health Malaysia (MoH) here today.
