A Health Ministry infographics yesterday showed that Lipis in Pahang and Sri Aman in Sarawak are also green zones. Pahang now only has active cases in Kuantan (37) and Jerantut (18) while Sarawak has 270 cases in 13 districts.

Beluran in Sabah was the only district which lost its green status yesterday after it recorded its first case.

There are 88 green zones nationwide as of yesterday, with yellow zones dropping from 61 to 57 and red zones still at 12.

In the red zones, the number of active cases have also been been dropping such as in Petaling which is now down to only 37 active cases, after nine recoveries yesterday.
