As there wasn’t any press conference being hosted by the Ministry of Health this afternoon (9 May), a media statement was released by the Ministry on their social media account

A total of 54 new Covid-19 cases has been recorded as of 12pm today, and this included one imported case. The total Covid-19 cases has been brought up to 6,589.

The Ministry also reported one death case, bringing the death toll to 108 cases as of today.

There were 65 patients who recovered from the disease, bumping the number of recovered cases to 4,292.

However, the Ministry reported on their Twitter account, announcing that there is a new Covid-19 cluster at a construction site at Setia Alam.

Three out of five migrant workers who underwent screening before returning to work had been tested positive for Covid-19. It was reported that all three migrant workers are Bangladeshis who share a dormitory with 18 other people.

Following the positive results, contact tracing had been carried out. Therefore, as of 12pm today (9 May), a total of 12 Bangladeshi workers were tested Covid-19 positive.

Nine of these workers were tested negative, and seven more are still awaiting results.

The source of this particular cluster is still under investigation.

Seeing how the majority of Singapore’s Covid-19 cases involved migrant workers who live in shared dormitories, it is indeed worrying that we’re beginning to see this happening in Malaysia, especially after the MOH announced that we had flattened the curve.
