MALAYSIA will not follow Singapore in increasing its alert level following the coronavirus outbreak, because the situation here is under control, said Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

“We will have talks with Singapore soon. It is different there. We are concerned about sporadic cases. At the moment, most cases here are Chinese nationals,” Dr Wan Azizah said.
