KUALA LUMPUR, July 21 — Malaysia is still under testing for Covid-19, said Damansara MP Tony Pua today.

In a statement, he claimed that the Ministry of Health (MoH) has not been consistent with its daily testing and had conducted significantly fewer tests for a six-week period despite the country’s rising infection rate.

He said during the first week of movement control order (MCO) 3.0, which commenced on May 23, the MoH carried out an average of 109,601 daily tests to return an average of 7,631 daily positive cases or 6.96 per cent positivity.

But for the six subsequent weeks until July 10, he added, the MoH had actually carried out significantly fewer tests despite the high and rising positivity rate.
