DAP’s assemblyman for Kampung Tunku in Petaling Jaya is the latest politician to become infected with Covid-19.
Lim Yi Wei, who was among those involved in the Sabah election campaign, said she had only experienced symptoms on Oct 1, despite a swab test result confirming she was free of the virus.
She said she was informed today that she was Covid-19 positive, based on a second swab test done on Oct 2.
“I apologise to all Ministry of Health staff, my colleagues and all who are inconvenienced, despite all precautions taken and self-quarantine since Day 1. I also urge all who have been in contact with me for the last 14 days to do screening at the nearest health clinic,” she said.
Earlier, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Zulkifli Mohamad al-Bakri tested positive for Covid-19 as well.
The former federal territories mufti urged anyone who had attended events involving him between Sept 24 and Oct 4 to undergo Covid-19 screening.
