“Covid-19 will not rest” Malaysia may face a fourth wave

Ramadan this year is celebrated in an atmosphere where our country is still overshadowed by the spread of Covid-19.

Senior Minister (Security), Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said Malaysia is likely to face a fourth wave of Covid-19 transmission following the recent increase in cases of the outbreak.

He explained that this is based on data collected by the Ministry of Health (MOH) so far, which shows the rate of Covid-19 or R-Naught (Ro/Rt) infectiousness on April 11 for the whole country rose back to 1.06.

Sabri said the data at the state level showed that Terengganu recorded the highest Ro/Rt of 1.56.

Even though there is a lot of activity during Ramadhan, he said Covid-19 will not take a day off from its threat.

“In Malaysia, although we still record four daily cases, which is more than 1,000, this development has not yet shown that we are safe from being infected with this epidemic,”

“Data from the MOH shows the possibility of a fourth wave of Covid-19. So, together we need to adhere to standard operating procedures (SOP) not to mention in the month of Ramadan there are many activities such as Ramadan Bazaar, breaking fast, moreh and Tarawih prayers.” he said in a press conference after a session of the National Security Council (MKN) two days ago.
