PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia reported 15 more Covid-19 cases and zero deaths on Wednesday, the lowest daily figure since the movement control order (MCO) was enforced on Mar 18.

This takes the total number of infections in the country to 7,619 cases.

He also said 42 more patients had been discharged, which means 6,083 patients have recovered from Covid-19 in Malaysia since the outbreak began.

Malaysia’s Covid-19 recovery rate is now at 79.8% out of the total number of positive cases.

There are now 1,421 active cases being treated at the country’s health facilities at present.
