PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia recorded 31 cases on Thursday (June 11), taking the total number of infections to 8,369.
This marks a return to double figures, after three days in a row of single-digit daily cases.
Out of the 31 new cases, 11 are imported cases involving returning Malaysians who were infected abroad.
Of the 20 local transmission cases, only one involved a Malaysian. The case was detected during a health screening at a tahfiz in Selangor, said Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah at the Health Ministry’s daily Covid-19 media briefing.
There were also 16 new cases from the Pedas cluster in Negri Sembilan.
Dr Noor Hisham also said 51 cases have been discharged, which means 7,065 patients have recovered from Covid-19 since the outbreak began.
