While the vast majority of new cases in the Klang Valley were from known clusters or origins, it should be noted that 160 of these infections, or 16.6 percent, were classified as "lain-lain saringan" (other screenings). 

This classification is an umbrella term for screenings on people with symptoms, pre-surgery screening, workplace screenings and pre-departure screenings, among others.

In Selangor, a new cluster known as Sungai Putus accounted for 369 new cases. This cluster involved mostly foreigners working at a factory in the Klang district, possibly located in Jalan Sungai Putus, which is sandwiched between Bandar Bukit Raja and Klang town. 

Of the six deaths reported, five were in Sabah. The cumulative Covid-19 death toll for Sabah has reached 233 or 57.96 percent of the national total (402).
