Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin is expected to chair a special meeting on Covid-19 tomorrow, according to Federal Territories Minister Annuar Musa.
"Tomorrow the PM himself will chair a special meeting on Covid-19... hopefully, there will be stern and immediate action," he said in a brief tweet this evening.
The Health Ministry reported 287 new cases today, with the majority in Kedah (129 cases), Sabah (113) and Selangor (31).
The total cumulative cases are 11,771.
To date, it's the highest daily number of new Covid-19 cases since the movement control order was implemented on March 18
Responding to Annuar's tweet, Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi expressed hope that the new standard operating procedures (SOP) would curb the coronavirus outbreak.
"Hopefully, the new SOP will prevent Covid-19 outbreak from becoming a more dangerous wave.
"Don't be careless," he said.
Zahid also called on Malaysians to come together to help overcome the pandemic.
In a separate matter, Klang MP Charles Santiago told Free Malaysia Today that he and 64 parent-teacher groups have called for schools in Klang to be closed following the spike in Covid-19 cases.
This comes after two students of SMK Pandamaran Jaya were reportedly infected with the virus while others were quarantined.
