GOMBAK, 12 November 2020: Malaysia records 919 new cases including three imported cases and one death as of noon bringing the cumulative total of Malaysia’s current total active cases at 11,419 and total deaths at 303. 

A silver lining in today’s news is that the country recorded more recovered cases (996) than newly recorded cases (919). 

Health Director-General, Tan Sri Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah presents Sabah as the state with the highest number of new cases at 319 with a new cluster that was just discovered. Negeri Sembilan comes in second for the highest number with a figure of 240 new cases and Selangor at 174. 

During the press conference today, concerns were expressed on the rapidly increasing number of new cases in the Negeri Sembilan and Selangor area. 

However, Tan Sri Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah says, “If the spread of infection in certain states can be fully controlled, we may end conditional movement control order (CMCO) earlier in that particular state.” 

Lembah Pantai (KL) and Putrajaya have just been declared as red zones after more than 19 new cases were reported in the last couple of days.***
