THERE has been a surge in the number of Covid-19 patients at the Stadium Malawati Covid-19 Assessment Centre (CAC) in Shah Alam in the past week, leading to overcrowding, said Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad.

The chairman of Selangor Task Force for Covid-19 told The Malaysian Insight that it has persistently been more than 1,000 patients daily, but recently, the number is closer to 2,000.

The state has averaged 4,000 new infections for the past week due to its population density. Yesterday, it recorded 4,682 new cases while neighbouring Kuala Lumpur saw 1,247 new infections. – July 12, 2021.
