Malaysia has recorded another 12 Covid-19 cases, bringing the total number of cases to 129 in the country, reported The Star.
The 12 new cases were close contacts of Case 33, according to newly-appointed Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said.
“We were able to track these cases through our contact tracing process,” he said on Tuesday (10th March).
He also added that case 87 has recovered from the illness, making the patient the 25th one in the country to recover and be discharged, reported Malaysia Kini.
He said this when he was at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to monitor the screening process of passengers for Covid-19 at the terminal.
“There are a total of 150 ministry officials on duty around-the-clock at the terminal to conduct the screening process,” he said.
“We do not just have officials here. There are people on duty at other international airports as well as at the country’s land and sea entry points.”
Dr Adham advised Malaysians to take their own precautionary measures by practising “social distancing” – avoiding crowded areas and events and refraining from physical contact.
He even demonstrated how to greet someone without shaking hands by placing his palm on the chest.
Malaysia is the second-worst country in Southeast Asia in regards to Covid-19 cases.
