Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said of the 68 cases, 57 involve non-Malaysians. Malaysia started testing foreign workers for the virus last week.
“We also have four imported cases, three from the United Kingdom and one from the United States.
“This means we have 64 local transmission cases and three inside enhanced movement control order (EMCO) areas.
Dr Noor Hisham also said 88 individuals have been discharged. This means the total number of those who have recovered from the virus is 4,864, or 77.43 per cent of confirmed cases.
“There are also 18 positive cases currently being treated in intensive care units (ICU), with seven of them requiring respiratory support,” he said.
The official death toll in Malaysia currently stands at 107.
