Mask up in crowded places, health minister urges Malaysians amid spike in Covid-19 cases

PUTRAJAYA, Dec 14 — Health Minister Datuk Seri Dzulkefly Ahmad today urged the public to don face masks in crowded places due to the recent spike in Covid-19 cases in Malaysia.

He said it is important to understand that the year-end holidays, the increased movement of people, and weather conditions all play a contributing role to the escalation in cases.

“Yes, we acknowledge the surge in cases. I informed the Cabinet yesterday to update them on the current situation.

“It is important to understand that the rise in cases is connected to factors like year-end holidays, mobility, and weather conditions,” he told reporters after his speech during the Ministry of Health (MoH) monthly assembly here, today.
