Why We’re Still Seeing High Daily COVID-19 Deaths

 Two weeks ago, the Health Minister YB Khairy Jamaluddin said that while the number of COVID-19 deaths remains high, especially in the Klang Valley, he expects that it will come down in the coming weeks, as the high number is due to the backlog of reported deaths. However, with the number of deaths reported daily still in the hundreds, how do we make sense of these numbers and trends that are presented by the Ministry of Health? What do they tell us about the trajectory of the pandemic in Malaysia? Here to break it down for us is infectious diseases physician, Datuk Dr Christopher Lee.
