Confirmed COVID-19 cases are cases as defined in Annex 1 of the KKM COVID-19 Guidelines, which details how Malaysia defines suspected, probably, and confirmed COVID-19 cases.
The number of confirmed cases may be less than the number of actual cases due to under-testing and under-reporting of test results. The problem of under-testing is likely to have gotten more-severe after May 2023, when COVID-19 restrictions were lifted and testing rates fell.
