S’porean to go to prison over spying
Kuala Lumpur— Muhyiddin Yassin, the Prime Minister of Malaysia and several other officials who were in contact with a minister tested positive for COVID-19 are in quarantine.
Zulkifli Mohamad al-Bakri, the country’s Religious Affairs Minister, yesterday (October 5) said he tested positive for COVID-19.
Malaysia is facing a new wave of infections, with a record 432 new confirmed cases on Oct 5 (Monday) for a total of 12,813 infections.
However, according to the government, the rise in cases is because of undocumented immigrants.
The religious affairs minister had met with PM Muhyiddin and other cabinet officials, including Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof and Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba, on Saturday (Oct 3), ironically enough, to discuss the pandemic situation in Malaysia.
By the following day, Mr Zulkifli announced via a Facebook post that he tested positive for Covid-19, and asked those he had been in close contact with to get tested as well.
The minister seems to be asymptomatic so far, writing on Oct 4, “I am currently undergoing treatment because I’ve tested positive. Alhamdulillah, up to now I am still in good health.”
Following this, the Prime Minister announced that everyone who had been in the cabinet meeting had also undergone testing, and would go into isolation for two weeks.
“Members of the meeting who are not close contacts have been told to observe self-quarantine for a period of 14 days from Oct 3 to 16 and conduct self-health monitoring at home for 14 days using the ‘home assessment tool’ in the MySejahtera app,” PM Muhyiddin said.
For his part, PM Muhyiddin added that he had undergone swab test on Sept 22, 26, and 29 and that all the tests he had undergone every two weeks since April had been negative. He also assured the public that government business would proceed as normal.
In a statement, he said, “I will continue to work from home and use video conferencing to attend important meetings that I am required to chair.”
The Prime Minister has gone into quarantine for the second time since May when an officer who attended a post-Cabinet meeting also tested positive for Covid-19. —/TISG
