Two of 21 COVID-19 cases recorded on Thursday in Malaysia were imported from New Zealand.
According to the local media outlet The Star, Health Director-General Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said five of the 21 cases were imported.
Two were people who had returned from New Zealand and there was a single case from India, Pakistan and China.
That takes Malaysia's case total to 10,052.
New Zealand's Ministry of Health says it is following up with authorities in Malaysia.
It's not the first time someone returning from New Zealand has tested positive for COVID-19 in Malaysia. In July, Dr Abdullah said someone who had recently arrived back from New Zealand had tested positive for the illness.
Other countries have had imported cases from New Zealand, such as South Korea, Japan and Belgium.
