Late notifications to MOH caused backlog cases in Selangor

Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said the delay in reporting the number of positive cases in Selangor recently was because private laboratories were late to send in the notifications to the ministry.

He said when the private sector does not notify Ministry of Health, the district health centre is not aware of the positive cases and it also causes delays in contact tracing.

Dr Noor Hisham said this at an online engagement session with the media on Friday.
