The Ministry of Health (KKM) initially predicted that the daily Covid-19 cases would reach 5,000 by the end of June if the infectivity rate remains at 0.95, as seen in the number of forecasted cases in a graph tweeted by the Health-Director General, Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah. However, with the infectivity rate at 1.0 as of 28 June, the 5,000 mark is still out of reach at the moment.

An infectivity rate is calculated using the R-naught value. An R-naught value of 1.0 means that one person who is infected with Covid-19 is able to spread the virus to 1.0 other people.

Previously, KKM predicted that daily cases would reach 4,000 by the end of June, but because the infectivity rate has been following an upward trend over the past two weeks, the government’s target of 4,000 cases by end of June has not been met.

As of today (29 June), Malaysia has recorded 6,437 Covid-19 cases with 3,660 cases in the Klang Valley alone (Selangor (2,299) and Kuala Lumpur (1,361)).

Seeing that the government has not moved past Phase 1 of the full Movement Control Order (MCO) and that it will extend until further notice, we can only sit tight and hope that the Covid-19 situation will begin to ease soon.

Meanwhile, the infectivity rate recorded in all states are as follows:
