The moment we think we have the situation under control, things just simply don’t always go smoothly. Despite the government’s best efforts to keep the infection rate of Covid-19 at bay, the number of patients who tested positive for the novel coronavirus has jumped by a significant margin, according to New Straits Times.

Positive Covid-19 Coronavirus Cases In M'sia Officially Soars Above 100, Total Now At 117 Patients - World Of Buzz

Just yesterday (9th March 2020), the Malaysian Ministry of Health has confirmed over 18 new cases of Covid-19 coronavirus in Malaysia, bringing the tally up to 117 confirmed Covid-19 novel coronavirus patients locally.

Yes, it is official, the number of patients have now soared beyond the 100 mark.

Director-General Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said that the patient 101 is a businessman who had reported a travel history to Iran, where the virus has also been rampantly spreading. Upon returning, he began exhibiting symptoms on 5th March 2020, and subsequently tested positive for the virus on March 8th 2020.

“With the addition of 18 cases, it brings the total to 117 positive cases of Covid-19. From the total, 19 are identified as patient-under-investigation (PUI), 96 from close contact and two more from humanitarian missions,” he added.

At this point in time, the Ministry of Health is still conducting Covid-19 surveillance to detect sporadic and local cases in Malaysia through influenza-like-illness (ILI) and severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) patients, especially those with no travel history of traveling to affected countries or known contact with positive Covid-19 coronavirus patients.

Given that statistic, we have all the more reason to buck up our hygiene standards and be sure to keep a close eye on whether you exhibit any symptoms of the virus or not!
