Malaysia’s Covid-19 Cases Hits 1 Million Mark

Malaysia’s cumulative Covid-19 cases have breached the one million mark on Sunday, July 25.

The Health Ministry in a statement today said, Malaysia’s additional 17,045 cases today brings the tally to a total of 1,013,438 cases, since the first case was recorded on 25th January 2020.

For the record, Malaysia has been undergoing a third lockdown since 1 June 2021.

The government said the lockdown was necessary to curb the rise in cases.

While signs of recovery emerged at the initial stages, by early July, the cases recorded began to become higher than pre-lockdown.

In response, Malaysians have established a grassroots white flag movement in a bid to help those who are the worst-hit by the pandemic and unsupported by government relief assistances.

A black flag movement was also established as a protest against the current administration, alongside the hashtag #KerajaanGagal (failed government).

But Prime Minister Tan Sri Mahiaddin Md. Yasin on 14 July responded, saying that labels of #KerajaanGagal is untrue.

He added that aid has been sent out and kitchens of recipients are probably full.
