MALAYSIAN PRIME MINISTER MUHYIDDIN TESTS NEGATIVE FOR COVID-19 WHILE IN QUARANTINE
Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has tested negative for COVID-19 after a minister who attended a high-level meeting chaired by the premier on Saturday contracted the virus.
Muhyiddin, along with 13 ministers and deputy ministers, started home quarantine on Monday after it was discovered that religious affairs minister Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri had COVID-19.
“The prime minister is currently in good health. However, he will continue self-quarantine until the end of the 14-day period set by the ministry of health,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement.
On Tuesday, Muhyiddin said there would be no double standards when it comes to quarantine order.
