Abstract

A new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), arisen towards the end of December 2019 in the city of Wuhan, province of Hubei, People’s Republic of China. It has spread to the entire world very short duration and very fast. The main goal is to investigate the spreading rate of the coronavirus in Malaysia by using mathematical modeling based on the real-time data. Due to the insufficient precautions, the model shows a very fast change. Based on the estimation, this model regards that after the certain period (about time (t1 )= ~50) the number of infections will go to decrease.
