Kedah MB tests for Covid-19, result expected tomorrow


Kedah Menteri Besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor, together with 55 individuals including two state executive councillors, underwent a Covid-19 swab test today.

This was after an individual who was at an event they attended on Monday tested positive for the virus.

The two executive councillors are the state Health and Local Government Committee chairperson Dr Mohd Hayati Othman as well as the Information, Communication and Multimedia Committee chairperson Wan Romani Wan Salim who is also the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Committee chairperson.

According to a statement issued by the Kedah Menteri Besar’s office today, other individuals undergoing the test included staff at the Menteri Besar’s office and several state PAS leaders.

They were present at the event held at Wisma Darul Aman which involved providing aid to residents who live in the administrative enhanced movement control order (MCO) area in the Kota Setar district.

Meanwhile, state Health director Dr Mohd Fikri Ujang, in the same statement, said that the test samples were sent to the Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital laboratory and the results were expected to be ready tomorrow.

He said that Muhammad Sanusi is not included in the list of close contacts with the individual who tested positive for Covid-19.

In this regard, he explained that there should be no problem for Muhammad Sanusi to go down to the field to carry out his responsibilities as Menteri Besar, to help the residents in administrative enhanced MCO in Kota Setar or the Melur Zone in Ambangan Heights, Sungai Petani.
