KUALA LUMPUR – Popular comedian, Shuib Sepahtu confessed that his late wife, Siti Sarah Raissuddin has not received her Covid-19 vaccination and the virus has caused severe damage in her lungs.
Shuib, 37, said that he was informed about the condition of his late wife by the doctors and nurses treating Siti Sarah, 36 since she was admitted into the hospital last Wednesday (4 August).
He also admitted his mistakes for belittling the vaccination and he did not really believe in the pandemic.
Shuib said, their domestic helper who was infected by Covid-19 earlier had passed away last Friday.
“Sarah has yet to get her vaccine and her lungs could not fully function with Covid-19.
“That was communicated to him by the doctors and nurses who treated Siti Sarah. They advised us to take the vaccine.
“At the same time, we need to take care of our health, obey the SOP and don’t be a hero by going here and there. Those with extra money, do invest in buying supplements.
“Your money is useless when you get Covid-19. We tried to admit my wife into the private hospital but all of them were full,” he said in a Live Instagram feed today.
Siti Sarah took her last breath at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Canselor Tuanku Muhriz Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Hospital UKM (HCTM) early this morning.
She was laid to rest after the Zohor prayer next to her mother, Allahyarham Nur Aini Mohamad who passed away on 26 June 2013.
Shuib and Siti Sarah were granted four children; Uwais Alqarni, 10, Dzahira Talita Zahra, 8, Ariq Matin, 6, and Ayash Affan who was born last Friday during their 11 years of marriage.
Meanwhile, Shuib said that Siti Sarah was a loyal and faithful wife for the past 11 years.
He also gave credit to his late wife for the success of his business. According to him, his late wife never complained or felt ashamed for marrying him despite he could not afford her dowry when they got married.
“She has helped me a lot for the past 11 years. She was not only loyal and faithful, she was never calculative and she never asked me about my money.
“Besides having no financial issues, she would follow me willingly back to my village and we never fought. She only wanted my mother and I to be happy,” he said.
Shuib added, Siti Sarah also taught her not to be calculative in doing charity.
Thus, according to him, she always donate whatever that crossed her mind and she did some in silence.
Siti Sarah was put on induced coma to give birth to her baby boy, Ayash Affan, through a caesarean surgery at 5.00 pm.
On 27 July, she verified that her whole family was tested positive for Covid-19. Nevertheless, her husband and children recovered after 14 days of self-quarantine. –MalaysiaGazette
