PETALING JAYA: Deputy Women and Family Development Minister Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff has apparently closed down her Twitter account after sparking an uproar over a tweet she had made on Covid-19.
The post had read: “The likelihood of dying from the Coronavirus is only 1%, while the possibility of dying at any moment is 100%.
“Let’s renew our faith and fear God, truly death is real and it comes unexpectedly.”
FMT is attempting to contact her for a response.
This comes just days after the deputy minister said in an interview with Sinar Harian that flight attendants should wear shariah-compliant uniforms.
Her comments drew the ire of the National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia, which questioned her priorities in bringing up the question at a time when airline staff face possible job cuts in addition to the Covid-19 outbreak.
