During a virutal meeting with other ASEAN foreign ministers and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Malaysian Foreign Minister Hishammuddin Hussein confirmed that Malaysia now has 5,532 recorded cases, with 3,452 people recovered. 

"The morbidity rate was at 1.6 percent." "Just one month ago on 26 March, we were faced with a peak of 235 new cases recorded in a single day, the highest Malaysia has ever experienced," the minister told ASEAN leaders. 

Today, I am proud that we have recorded only double-digit new cases for 5 days in a row," Hishammuddin said.

"I admit, these numbers look promising, but a full victory goes beyond just focusing on the statistics," he added.

The Malaysian foreign minister went on to brief his counterparts about measures the country was taking, on the political, economic and social front to combat COVID-19.
