Former prime minister Tun M is under a self-quarantine after a close contact with an MP who tested positive for Covid-19.
“He is under self-quarantine,” said a spokesman briefly on Thursday (Mar 19).
It is believed that the 95-year-old statesman had taken a picture with Bandar Kuching MP Dr Kelvin Yii Lee Wuen, who is now under quarantine at the Sarawak General Hospital (SGH).
Dr Yii had said he had tested positive for Covid-19 in a Facebook post on March 17, after coming into close contact with Sarikei MP Andrew Wong Ling Biu, who tested positive for Covid-19 on March 15.

“I will follow (self-quarantine). It is important in addressing this problem, to be disciplined.
“We must self-quarantine at home for 14 days. If we do that, there will be less possibility of the virus spreading to other people,” said Dr Mahathir.
“So, now I am just at home. I cannot go out and I cannot meet people. I cannot shake hands, and others,” said Dr Mahathir. However, he said the self-quarantine isn’t too hard for him.
Hopefully you are alright , Tun M!
