Muhyiddin to undergo 14-day quarantine

Muhyiddin Yassin said his self-quarantine will not affect government matters as he will be working from home and will chair meetings through video calls.

PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin will undergo home quarantine for 14 days.

This comes after he chaired a meeting attended by Religious Affairs Minister Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri, who tested postive for Covid-19.

“I underwent Covid-19 tests three times in the past three weeks, on Sept 22, 26 and 29. All tests have been negative,” he said in a statement.

Muhyiddin said his self-quarantine will not affect government matters as he will be working from home and will chair meetings through video calls.

This is the second time Muhyiddin is undergoing self-quarantine after he came into contact with an individual who tested positive for Covid-19 in May.

In his statement today, Muhyiddin also said the health ministry had identified those who came into close contact with Zulkifli and they had been issued with a home surveillance order, requiring them to self-quarantine for 14 days and wear a wristband.

“Those who attended the meeting but did not come into close contact (with Zulkifli) have been advised to self-quarantine for 14 days from Oct 3 until Oct 16 and monitor their health at home every day, using the MySejahtera health assessment tool.”
