Yesterday (25 May), Malaysia recorded 172 new cases of Covid-19 which is quite a big jump from a long streak of two-digit cases in the past few weeks. Out of that number, 112 are foreigners.

While screenings and tests will continue to be conducted for immigration detention depot staff and detainees, a spike in cases is expected in the days to come, said health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

In the Ministry of Health‘s daily press conference, Dr Noor Hisham said that the staff and detainees at three immigration detention depots which are Bukit Jalil, Sepang and Semenyih, are currently being screened and tested.

“We foresee more cases recorded in the next few days,” he said.

“But most importantly, they have been contained and isolated, and those who tested positive have been brought to the hospital for treatment. Once they are negative, they will be quarantined at a designated space.”

Meanwhile, a new cluster has been detected at the Sepang Immigration Detention Depot with 29 new Covid-19 cases reported, bringing the total number of cases at this detention depot to 36, according to Malay Mail.

540 cases from the Sepang cluster are negative while 873 samples still await results.

This certainly isn’t good news for us. Hopefully the Ministry of Health will be able to contain the spread from the new cluster. In the meantime, please stay home and avoid crowded places.
