PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia has discharged 108 Covid-19 patients on Wednesday, which is the highest number of recoveries in a day so far since the outbreak.

Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah (pic) said this was a sign that Malaysia’s recovery rate has been improving.

“The total number of Covid-19 patients who have been discharged is 645, which is 22.2% of the total number of cases,” said Dr Noor Hisham at a press conference here.

Dr Noor Hisham also announced 142 new confirmed Covid-19 cases in the country, bringing Malaysia’s tally to 2,908.
