And just like how the virus doesn’t differentiate race, religion or skin color, it also definitely does not set apart age.

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.

He also stated that the parents who intend to look after their Covid-19 child, are very much encouraged to wear the PPE suit. Based on his statistics, this is the breakdown of each age group thus far:

4 years and below: 83 patients

5-9 years old: 83 patients
