Covid-19: 123 new cases in Sabah, most infections are sporadic, says Masidi

KOTA KINABALU: Most of Sabah’s new Covid-19 cases are sporadic, says Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun.

The minister in charge of pandemic matters in the state said out of the 123 new cases on Monday

(June 27), 81 cases were recorded in Kota Kinabalu.

“Out of these cases in Kota Kinabalu, over 85% are sporadic, which means the transmission rates are riskier in crowded areas,” he said.

Masidi urged the public to continue maintaining high preventive measures including practising ongoing standard operating precautions (SOP) to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

He said from the total new cases, 121 were under Category 1 and Category 2, while two were under Category 4.

Apart from Kota Kinabalu, the other districts with new cases reported are Penampang with 13 cases, Keningau (nine), Tuaran (nine), Kota Belud (three), Ranau (two), Tambunan (two), and one each in Papar, Tawau, Tenom and Tongod.

There were no new clusters reported on Monday.
