PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia recorded four new Covid-19 cases Thursday (June 25), continuing its trend of single digits for the third day running.

Cumulatively, the number of infections in the country is now 8,600 cases.

All four new cases are Malaysians, with three of the four being imported cases detected in Malaysians returning from abroad.

The sole local transmission was detected from a screening process conducted on Severe Acute Respiratory Infection (SARI) patients at Hospital Enche’ Besar Hajjah Khalsom in Johor, said Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah in a press release Thursday.

Dr Hisham also said 40 more cases have been discharged, which means 8,271 patients have recovered from Covid-19 in Malaysia since the outbreak began.

This translates to a recovery rate of 96.2% out of the total number of cases in the country.

There are now only 208 active cases left being treated at health facilities nationwide.

Currently, there are two patients being treated at intensive care units (ICUs) and none are on ventilator support.

Dr Noor Hisham announced no new deaths, which means the death toll remains at 121 cases.
