Clusters

On Feb 27 to Mar 3, some 14,500 Malaysians and 1,500 others are believed to have attended a tabligh event held at Masjid Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur. On Mar 9, Brunei announced its first case, a man who attended this event. Since then, it is a race against time to trace and test all who attended. This cluster makes up more thanabout half of Malaysian cases.

They are from two big clusters - those connected to Cases 26 and 33, and the tabligh cluster. As such these are the only cluster information provided by the ministry.

Cases 26 and 33 relate to those connected to certain government agencies. The tabligh cluster, related to a religious event attended by 16,000 people in Kuala Lumpur on Feb 27 to Mar 3, makes up about half of cases.

The rest are from smaller clusters - a family from China, those linked to a Kuching pastor, who was the first Malaysian to die of Covid-19, or cases where the details are not disclosed by the government.
