According to the Malaysian Ministry of Health, the overall number of covid infections in the country is 2,728,203.

As of midnight Wednesday, Malaysia had reported 3,519 new COVID-19 infections, increasing the national total to 2,728,203, according to the health ministry. According to the ministry’s data, 100 of the new cases were imported, with 3,419 being local transmissions. Another 29 people have died, increasing the total number of people killed to 31,221.

On Wednesday alone, the country reported administering 177,272 vaccine doses, with 79.5 percent of the population receiving at least one dose and 78.3 percent being fully vaccinated. On the suggestion of WHO’s Technical Advisory Group on Virus Evolution, WHO recognized the variety B.1.1.529 as a variant of concern, dubbed Omicron, on November 26, 2021. (TAG-VE). This conclusion was made based on data submitted to the TAG-VE that Omicron contains a number of alterations that could affect how it acts, such as how easy it spreads or the severity of the sickness it causes. Here’s a rundown of everything we know right now.

Because Omicron has been designated as a Variant of Concern, WHO recommends that countries improve surveillance and sequencing of cases, share genome sequences on publicly available databases like GISAID, report initial cases or clusters to WHO, and conduct field investigations and laboratory assessments to better understand if Omicron has different transmission or disease characteristics, or has an impact on vaccine effectiveness. More information can be found in the announcement from November 26. Countries should continue to use a risk analysis and science-based approach to undertake appropriate public health interventions to limit COVID-19 circulation generally. To deal with an increase in instances, they need to expand some public health and medical capacities. WHO provides help and advice to nations in terms of both readiness and reaction.
