Malaysia’s PM isolating as minister tests positive
Muhyiddin Yassin, Malaysia’s prime minister, will self-quarantine for 14 days after a minister who attended a high-level government meeting to discuss Covid-19 developments on Saturday tested positive for the virus.
Mr Muhyiddin said that Zulkifli Mohamad Al-bakri, the religious affairs minister, had tested positive, and that those identified as close contacts at Saturday’s meeting had been issued a 14-day home surveillance order.
There has been a steady rise in cases in the country since an election in the state of Sabah, Borneo, on Sept 26.
