“Since Jan 10, the average daily cases in Kelantan have increased from 80 to 100 cases and even active cases have increased dramatically within 14 days.

“Kota Bharu, Bachok, Tumpat, Gua Musang, Machang, Kuala Krai and Tanah Merah districts are now in the red zone, while Pasir Puteh and Pasir Mas are now in the yellow zone and Jeli is in the orange zone,” he said at a press conference on MCO developments today.
