PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has admitted that the Sabah state elections in September was the cause of the third wave of Covic-19 infections in the country.

Explaining the emergency declaration in Batu Sapi that would enable the postponement of the by-election there, the Prime Minister said that although the Election Commission (EC) had set a tight standard operating procedure (SOP) for the elections, compliance was very weak, making the epidemic hard to control.
