KUALA LUMPUR, July 8 — Another field hospital will be built by the Malaysian Armed Forces at the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital (HTAR) in Klang following a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases in Selangor.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the move was to support preparedness of health services in Selangor and to help the Ministry of Health (MOH) deal with the current COVID-19 pandemic situation in the state.
“To date, MOH has confirmed that average daily cases in Selangor in the last 14 days have shown a sharp increase trend with the number of clusters increasing.
“Based on this situation, the government has agreed to set up another field hospital at Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital (HTAR) in Klang,” he said in a statement on developments concerning the National Recovery (PPN) today.
Selangor continued to report the highest daily number of COVID-19 cases, recording 4,152 of the 8,868 new cases nationwide today.
