‘Figures don’t show fast virus spread’


PETALING JAYA: The current Covid-19 effective reproduction number (Re) does not indicate that the virus is spreading rapidly compared to the first phase of the movement control order (MCO), say health experts, in spite of the D614G coronavirus super spreader that was detected in the country.

Universiti Malaya epidemiologist Prof Dr Awang Bulgiba Awang Mahmud said that the Kedah clusters were being contained now, so he did not think they are proving more difficult to handle than before.
