New COVID-19 cases in Malaysia remained at a single digit with two cases reported today, bringing the cumulative figure to 8,639, with 164 active cases, said Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah (picture).

He said one of the new cases was a local transmission and the other, an imported case.

“Both involve Malaysians. No local transmission among foreigners was reported today,” he said in a statement today.

Elaborating on the local transmission, he said it was detected at the Kota Belud Hospital in Sabah during a pre-referral screening of a patient.

Noor Hisham said four COVID-19 patients were still being treated in the intensive care unit, with one requiring ventilator support.
