According to the Director-General of Health, Datuk Dr Muhammad Radzi Abu Hassan, the number of COVID-19 patient admissions to hospitals per 100,000 population increased from 4.8% to 5.8% in EW 17. However, he assured that the situation of COVID-19 infections in Malaysia remains under control, and healthcare services and hospital capacity are not affected.
Dr Radzi added that most of the hospitalized patients belong to high-risk groups such as individuals with comorbidities and the elderly, and the increase did not burden the healthcare system. Despite the controlled situation, the MOH urged the public to continue adhering to preventive measures, especially during the recent holiday celebrations, to avoid further outbreaks.
