Health D-G Tan Sri Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah took Facebook to share a graph for Rt value in Sabah, Selangor, and Kedah urging Malaysians to strictly adhere to the SOPs and measures set by the government.

Rt value indicates how fast COVID-19 is spreading. Selangor has recorded a 1.95 Rt, much higher than Sabah, following a surge in daily new infections from 2 to 3 cases to 10 to15 cases.

Somehow, Rt value in Sabah has stabilized, although it was recorded at 1.29 yesterday ( Sep 29) the situation is still worrying, as it involves a high number of new cases.

While, the Rt in Kedah decreased to 0.65, and it is in line with the decrease in cases in the state, which recorded only 2 cases in 4 days.

Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah said it took into account the magnitude of the change and showed an increased pandemic risk in the state if public health prevention measures are not taken.
