The national Covid-19 infectivity rate or Rt has risen past 1.0 on Thursday, said Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, Malaysia Health-General.

Putrajaya leads the chart with an increase of Rt of 1.16, Kuala Lumpur 1.04, Selangor 1.03, Negeri Sembilan and Pahang at 1.01.

Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah had previously said that an Rt above 1.0 indicates the possibility of a new Covid-19 wave, like what Malaysia experienced at the beginning of the third wave.

Khairy Jamaluddin, Malaysia's Health Minister, urged Malaysians to honour their Covid-19 booster shot appointment because of the rising of the Covid-19 infectivity rate.
