According to NST, seven new cases were detected at a plantation in Bera while six were detected at a sawmill and another two at a construction company in Maran.

These cases were detected after the state health department conducted random checks. Dr Noor Hisham said it is still not known where the source of infection came from.

“Those who tested positive were isolated and currently receiving treatment, while close contacts who tested negative are being quarantined for 14 days,” he said.

Malaysia recorded 57 new cases on 31 May bringing the total number to 7,819 including 6,353 recoveries and 115 deaths.
