According to Health Director-General Dato’ Seri Noor Hisham Abdullah, the church gathering has resulted in 83 people reported positive for COVID-19, while the wedding in Bandar Baru Bangi registered a total of 88 infected with the coronavirus.
Both the church gathering and the wedding were Malaysia’s second and third biggest COVID-19 clusters respectively, behind the Sri Petaling mosque cluster which saw 1,624 positive cases in total so far.
