Zones and what they mean

The Ministry of Health has four main categories when it comes to COVID-19 zones in the country.

Red is for districts that have 41 cases and above, orange is for districts that have between 20 to 40 positive COVID-19 cases, red is for districts that have been 1 to 19 cases and green is for districts that have zero COVID-19 cases.

As of April 5, Malaysia has 3,662 confirmed cases with 61 people dying from the disease so far.

Do what you can to keep yourself and your community safe.

Do not travel out of your district as it is against the MCO and will also increase the risk of you bringing the disease to other areas in the country.
