NewsHealth DG says the Worst is yet to Come as cases spike

Yesterday (25 May), Malaysia recorded 7,289 Covid-19 positive cases and this is the highest recorded daily cases ever since the pandemic started.

However, the Health Director-General, Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah warns Malaysians that the worst is yet to come following an exponential trend indicated by the Covid-19 graph in this country.

On his Twitter account, he shared “The rise in cases started from April 1 and could trigger a vertical surge. We need to prepare for the worst. Please help us by staying at home. Only together, we can break the chain of infection,”

Dr Noor Hisham advised the public to stay at home and practice self-lockdown and only go out when it is absolutely necessary. In addition, those who go out are required to comply strictly with the standard operating procedures (SOPs).

As of Sunday (23 May), the infectivity rate in the country stood at 1.21, which means that one person infected with Covid-19 is able to spread the virus to 1.21 other people. If this continues, it means that daily cases could reach up to 9,000 by June if there is non-compliance to SOPs.
