Malaysia’s 5th Covid-19 patient who passed away was a 79-year-old Malaysian woman who had been admitted to a Borneo medical centre on 16 March after having fever and cough for five days. On the second day of admission, she experienced breathing difficulties but her family rejected respiratory support for her. Thus, her family brought her home on 17 March.

She was tested Covid-19 positive on 19 March and was given respiratory support on that very day as her condition deteriorated. She passed away today (21 March).
The 7th death involves a 57-year-old Malaysian man who travelled to Vietnam, and had contact with a Covid-19 positive patient from the Sri Petaling tabligh gathering cluster. He was admitted into Hospital Kuala Lumpur on 18 March after experiencing fever, cough and sore throat for a week. He was given respiratory support as his condition continued to worsen, unfortunately, he passed away in the afternoon today.
The 8th Covid-19 death is a 69-year-old Malaysian man who attended the Sri Petaling tabligh gathering. He was hospitalised at Hospital Tumpat on 16 March as he was having fever since 12 March. He was then transferred to Hospital Raja Perempuan Zaiab II, Kota Bharu, on 18 March after finding out that his condition was worsening and he required respiratory support.
