Find out what’s going on, and what the facts really are!

- Dorsett KL : 1446 cases
- Pavilion : 1419 cases

COVID-19 Hot Spot Areas In KL : NOT TRUE!
The map of COVID-19 hot spot areas in KL claims to be based on the MySejahtera app, but it’s NOT TRUE and here are the reasons why…
Reason #1 : KKM Confirmed It’s False
The Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) confirmed that this map is false.
Reason #2 : MySejahtera Does Not Show Case Number For Specific Locations
The MySejahtera app allows you to look up specific locations, but it will NOT show the case numbers for that location.
So it is not possible for anyone to use MySejahtera to find out that Low Yat Plaza has 1027 cases, for example.
Reason #3 : MySejahtera Shows Cases In 1 KM Radius In Past 14 Days
The MySejahtera Hot Spot tracker feature only shows the number of reported COVID-19 cases within a 1 km radius in the last 14 days.
If you try it out now, you can search for Pavilion KL, and it will say,
There have been 805 reported case(s) of COVID-19 within a 1 km radius from your searched location in the last 14 days.
