All three cases are Malaysians, with one of them an import case involving an individual with recent travel history to New Zealand and Fiji.

Dr Noor Hisham also said 16 more cases have been discharged, which means 8,334 patients have recovered from Covid-19 in since the outbreak began.

This translates to a recovery rate of 96.4% out of the total number of cases in the country.

There are now only 182 active cases left being treated at health facilities nationwide.

Currently, there are four patients treated at intensive care units (ICU) with one patient requiring ventilator support.
