The Health Ministry today reported 6,437 new Covid-19 cases, the first time in 11 days it had climbed above 6,000.
This was partly caused by a significant surge in Kuala Lumpur. It reported 1,361 new Covid-19 cases, the highest for the federal territory since the start of the pandemic.
The previous record in Kuala Lumpur was 884 new cases on June 11.
The number of fresh infections in Negeri Sembilan also remained elevated. It ranked third in terms of new cases today with 700 new infections.
Details on the number of active cases, Covid-19 patients in the intensive care unit and deaths will be released later today when the Health Ministry releases its official statement.
