Dr Mahathir Mohamad today revealed that one of his family members had been infected with Covid-19.

Without giving names, the former prime minister said the person was initially told to observe home quarantine, but was warded upon worsening in condition.

“The problem is that when the person is at home, the infection will spread to everyone at home.

“So more people will be infected. The infected person should have been separated, to undergo quarantine separately from the rest of the family,” he said.

He said the pressure on quarantine and hospital facilities called for health director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah to seek help from other experts.

“There are many methods and practices to minimise infections,” Mahathir, a former medical doctor, said in a blog post.

“The services of the health director are appreciated. But this pandemic is too big to be handled by a single person,” he added.
