More than 600 healthcare workers in Malaysia have been infected with Covid-19 since February, Health Minister Dr Adham Baba says.

Of these, 406 were government hospital workers while the rest were attached to private and university hospitals.

Adham said ministry workers who had contracted the virus were provided with psychosocial support through its Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre.

“Besides having sessions with psychiatrists, they will also continue with treatment.

“Also, they will not be allowed to treat Covid-19 patients any longer,” he told reporters after an event in Putrajaya yesterday.

He said the concerns raised by ministry workers through its psychosocial support hotline included stress from being away from their families, having to comply with strict SOPs, exhaustion and issues concerning the Covid-19 special allowance.
