Almost 29,000 HFMD cases recorded nationwide so far this year

REMBAU: There has been a significant increase in hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) infections nationwide, with a total of 28,957 cases reported from January until May 13, 2022 compared to only 4,239 cases in 2021, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

However, the Health Minister said the increase was expected with the reopening of all economic sectors, including the education sector and resumption of face-to-face learning in schools as well as kindergartens and child care centres.
