COVID-19 | The Health Ministry has reported 20,897 new Covid-19 cases today.  

This brings the collective total of cases to 1,746,254, with Selangor still leading in the highest number of new infections detected at 4,371.

Kelantan has hit a new record high with 1,479 cases while SabahSarawak and Johor all have over 2,000 cases. Penang and Kedah are also not far from that number.

When adjusted for population size, however, Penang has taken the lead with a daily average of 94.58 community cases per 100,000 population in the past week, followed by Kedah (84.24 per 100,000) and Selangor (77.95 per 100,000).

The incidence rate figures provided by the Health Ministry excludes imported cases and cases in detention facilities.

  • Active cases: 267,863
  • Patients in ICUs: 1,005
  • Intubated: 464

Overall, 15,371 (73.6 percent) of cases reported today involve unvaccinated or partly vaccinated individuals, while 5,526 (26.4 percent) are fully vaccinated.

For the record, 34.9 percent of Malaysia's population are considered fully vaccinated today, based on the number of second doses administered two weeks ago on Aug 17. This means the disease is more prevalent in populations that are yet to be fully vaccinated.

As of yesterday, vaccine coverage has reached 45.6 percent of the national population, including children who are still vulnerable to the disease but not eligible for vaccination.

Deaths

There were 282 fatalities today, bringing the death toll to 16,664. This includes 64 today who have no history of chronic illness.

The deaths have been recorded in Selangor (139), Johor (52), Kuala Lumpur (21), Sabah (15), Penang (12), Kedah (11), Kelantan (9), Pahang (7), Malacca (5), Negeri Sembilan (3), Perak (3), Terengganu (2), Perlis (1), Sarawak (1), and Putrajaya (1).

Of these, 98 had died before being brought to a hospital – predominantly in Selangor (67), Kuala Lumpur (10), and Sabah (9). The number in Selangor matches the state's record-high on brought-in-dead cases on Aug 8.
