Numbers remained low until March where local clusters began to sprout.1 This rapid rise was alarming to the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) and Movement Control Order (MCO) was declared on the 18th of March 2020 to flatten the curve.2 As Malaysia enters her fourth phase of MCO, she has over six thousand cases of COVID-19 with over a hundred fatalities. Efforts within the MCO entails social distancing, increasing testing capacity and isolation. This combination of measures led to Malaysia being recognised to have one of the lowest death rate and highest recovery rate exceeding 50% of total cases.3
