  • 31.6 % have symptoms but no lung involvement
  • 13.6 % lung infection without shortness of breath.
  • 3.5 % lung infection with shortness of breath.
  • 1.1 % very sick
  • 50.2 % no symptoms at all

If you have come in contact with a COVID-19 patient, you should contact Ministry of Health (MOH) Malaysia Hotline or consult a doctor nearest to you.
