Day 9 of the MCO – COVID19 Malaysia Update

It is Day 9 of the MCO here, I haven’t been updating since Day 4 as I was recovering from my IBS symptoms probably due to food poisoning and inadequate nutrition over the previous couple of weeks. However, I’m back in commission now after 3 days of being horizontal most of the day and another 2 trying to cook and eat more.


  • MCO is extended for another 14 days until 14th April on 25th of March.
  • +235 -> 2031 confirmed cases
  • +5 -> 45 ICU (32 need breathing support)
  • +4 -> 23 deaths
  • +16 -> 215 recovered
