According to this report by Sinar Harian, about 6% out of the positive cases in Malaysia are children aged 14 and below. That is 315 patients, which is NOT a small number. Health DG Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah further noted that 83 patients are children below the age of 4 and another 83 patients as well are between the ages 5-9.

“The balance 149 patients are aged between 10-14 years and if there are any child patients that contract the disease from their mother or father, they will be placed in the same ward/room as them. If a child is infected while his/her parents are not, and the parents want to care for said child, we allow it”, he said.
