PUTRAJAYA • Malaysia yesterday reported 7,478 new coronavirus cases, its highest daily rise in infections since the start of the pandemic, after the health director-general warned of a “vertical surge” in cases.

The latest figure brings the total cumulative number of infections in the country to 533,367.

The health director-general, Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, warned on Tuesday that the next two weeks are critical as the worst may still come following a continuous surge in new cases.

“The rise in cases started on April 1 and could trigger a vertical surge. We need to prepare for the worst. Please help us by staying at home. Only together we can break the chain of infection,” he said in a Twitter post.
