Covid-19 situation becoming critical, warns health DG

(FMT) – Health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah has described the spread of Covid-19 in the country as becoming critical again and every individual is required to continue complying with the standard operating procedures (SOPs).

In a Twitter post, he said the people needed to return to practising the 3Cs, which is avoiding crowded places, confined spaces and close conversation.

“They must also practise the 3Ws — frequent washing of hands, wearing of face masks in public places and heed the warning on avoiding handshakes.

“Seek immediate treatment if one has the symptoms,” he said.

In a separate tweet, Noor Hisham said the number of new positive Covid-19 cases today is 2,881, compared to 3,788 yesterday.

He added that Selangor recorded the highest number of new infections, with 759 cases, followed by Sarawak (445) and Kelantan (442). Perlis was the only state to have zero transmissions today.
