PETALING JAYA: Umno Supreme Council member Tajuddin Abdul Rahman has tested positive for Covid-19.
The Pasir Salak MP is the latest Umno leader to contract the virus, after Padang Rengas MP Nazri Aziz revealed he tested positive yesterday.
“Those who came into close contact with him (Tajuddin) should take a Covid-19 test. Dato Seri Tajuddin apologises for any inconvenience and thanks everyone for their prayers,” a post on Facebook said.
Last week, Nazri and Tajuddin held a press conference, criticising the emergency proclamation, at Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) in Kuala Lumpur.
Blogger Zaharin Mohd Yasin, 68, who attended the event, posted on Facebook on Jan 14 that he had tested positive for Covid-19. This prompted Nazri to take the Covid-19 test.
Among those reported to have tested positive for Covid-19 recently are national unity minister Halimah Sadique, minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (economy) Mustapa Mohamed, women, family and community development minister Rina Harun; home minister Hamzah Zainudin, deputy communications and multimedia minister Zahidi Zainul Abidin, and Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.- FMT
