Malaysia today recorded 69 new COVID-19 cases, the lowest daily figure recorded as opposed to a sequence of triple-digit cases reported since the Movement Control Order (MCO) came into force on March 18. 

There were further signs of encouragement in the country’s battle against the pandemic when 201 recovery cases were reported, almost three times the number of new cases recorded today. 

Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah (picture) said the 201 cases brings the cumulative fully recovered cases up to 2,967 or 56.5 percent of the total number of cases.
