MALAYSIA’S Covid-19 infection rate (Rt) was at 1.06 yesterday, a 0.02 decrease from the 1.08 Rt reported on Saturday. 

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin in his tweet said although the country’s daily Rt had dropped steadily to 1.05, it is too early to say that Malaysia has gone past the Omicron variant peak even as 96% of active cases are recovering at home and hospital capacity is still under control.
