Breaking News : Zahid Hamidi & Annuar Musa Among 35 MPs Tested Positive For Covid-19 Ahead Of Special Parliamentary Sitting On Monday

Three MPs have tested positive for Covid-19, following a mass swab test held in Parliament recently in view of the special parliamentary sitting on Monday,

Astro Awani cited an anonymous source as saying that four other lawmakers have been flagged as close contacts to the three, and all seven of them are currently under mandatory quarantine.

The report did not mention the names of the MPs.

Antara ahli Parlimen yang dijangkiti virus itu ialah Ahli Parlimen Bagan Datuk, Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi; Tan Sri Annuar Musa (Ketereh) dan Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz (Bachok).

“Turut terlibat ialah Timbalan Speaker Dewan Rakyat, Datuk Mohd. Rashid Hasnon kerana pegawai pengiringnya positif,” kata sumber ketika dihubungi.

ome 35 MPs and their aides are reported to have tested positive for Covid-19 in a screening ahead of a Dewan Rakyat meeting beginning Monday.

Utusan Malaysia reported that Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, federal territories minister Annuar Musa, and Bachok MP Nik Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz were among them.

But aides to Annuar and Nik Abduh told FMT that the report was wrong and that they had tested negative. FMT is awaiting confirmation from Zahid.

Utusan Malaysia said there were some MPs who were found to be close contacts of Covid-19 patients and have undergone another swab test.

“This includes Dewan Rakyat deputy speaker Mohd Rashid Hasnon, because one of his officers tested positive,” a source told the Malay news portal.

Earlier, Astro Awani reported that a total of three MPs tested positive for Covid-19 while four were classified as close contacts.

The Dewan Rakyat convenes for a special five-day meeting from Monday until Aug 2.

“Additionally, the test which was conducted on the same day also found that 35 Parliament officers also tested positive and are under quarantine,” the source told the online news portal.

The matter however has not been officially confirmed by the office of the Dewan Rakyat Speaker, Datuk Azhar Azizan Harun.

An aide to Deputy Speaker Datuk Mohd Rashid Hasnon told the Malay Mail that Rashid and all his officers in the Parliament have tested negative for the infection.

“To clarify, all officers of the Deputy Speaker tested negative. We got the results and all our results are negative and we have already completed our vaccination.

“The Deputy Speaker himself also tested negative. He has been doing his swab test every three days, since the Parliament sitting is drawing close,” Muhammad Afiq Mohd Hanif, the strategic communications officer to Rashid, said when contacted.

Utusan Malaysia had in its report citing a source, named Bachok MP, Nik Abduh Nik Aziz, as well as Bagan Datuk MP and Umno president, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, among those who had tested positive.

News portal Malaysiakini meanwhile reported Nibong Tebal MP and deputy higher education minister, Datuk Mansor Othman also testing positive for Covid-19, quoting anonymous sources.

National news agency, Bernama yesterday reported Azhar saying that a majority of MPs have already received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, with another 35 have received at least one dose, while four MPs had not been vaccinated for certain reasons.

However, he said that they were still allowed to attend the Dewan Rakyat sittings. — Bernama
