KUALA LUMPUR, June 3 — Malaysia’s seven-day average for Covid-19 cases has remained steady near 7,500 for the fourth consecutive day, suggesting that the latest surge from the ongoing third wave has peaked.

According to data Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah released this morning, the effective reproduction number (Rt) for Covid-19 has also declined again.

“The Covid-19 infectivity rate, or R0/Rt, predicted from daily cases on June 2 for the entire country is 1.06,” he said.

Rt measures the average number of people from the remaining vulnerable population that each new Covid-19 patient could infect. It must be under 1.0 in order for Covid-19 to be suppressed.
