Private hospitals see fewer critical Covid-19 cases despite spike in infections

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 12 ― Private hospitals have not recorded any Category 4 or 5 cases of Covid-19 in the past three months despite the Omicron wave that has officially hit Malaysia, Association of Private Hospitals Malaysia said today.

“We have noticed there is a vast difference in the severity of the cases when compared to August 2021 when the numbers of reported cases were at 22,000 plus and almost every private hospital, particularly in the Klang Valley, had zero beds available both in their Covid-19 wards and Covid-19 ICUs . Malaysia is seeing a sharp spike in Covid-19 cases as the Omicron variant spreads within the community. Cases have steadily risen from 15,000 to 20,000 yesterday and are expected to hit the 22,000 mark today.

He said continued adherence to SOPs coupled with self-monitoring should be the norm and he does not expect the healthcare facilities to be overwhelmed.
