The Ministry of Health (KKM) has predicted that Malaysia could hit 5,000 Covid-19 cases daily if there continues to be non-compliance to standard operating procedures (SOP).

Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah shared the forecast of cases using the infectivity rate that is measured using the R0 (pronounced R-naught) value.

The infectivity rate nationwide stands at 1.16 as of 22 April, which means that one person infected with Covid-19 is able to spread the virus to 1.16 other people.
