KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia reported 293 new coronavirus cases on Sunday, taking its total number of infections to 12,381. Fatalities remained at 137, with no new deaths recorded.

Malaysia has seen record daily increases in virus cases this week, partly because of clusters linked to an election in its second-largest state of Sabah.
