The past few days, the number of recorded COVID-19 cases have been like a rollercoaster.
After recording three digit cases earlier in the week, the number of cases dipped back to double digits.
However, that didn't last very long.
Rise to three digits
On Friday (11 September), the Ministry of Health announced that the country saw a total of 182 new cases.
The figure was announced on the ministry's social media pages:
Of the 182 new cases, 181 of them were locally-transmitted cases.
A majority of the cases reportedly came from the Benteng cluster in Sabah, which accounted for 167 of the cases.
The Sungai and Telaga clusters in Kedah saw 14 new cases. The remaining new case was an imported one and reported in Selangor.
The 182 new cases reported on Friday is the most in almost three months, when the country recorded a total of 277 new cases on 4 June.
These new cases bring the total of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the country to 9,810, with a total of 501 active cases at the moment.
It is time for us to start being extra vigilant again, guys! We definitely do not want the cases to climb again.
