PUTRAJAYA – From the 2,032 Covid-19 positive cases in Malaysia, the youngest patient is a 12 days old infant who was born before the Movement Control Order (MCO) was implemented.
According to the Director-General of Health Datuk Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah, the baby is a victim of the second Covid-19 wave.
“For the first wave, the youngest patient was four year-old but now, a 12 days old baby is confirmed positive of Covid-19.
“We will provide the details later,” he said in a news conference at MOH today when asked about the treatment and date the baby was tested positive.
The media had earlier reported a two-year-old child being the youngest Covid-19 patient in Kelantan.
The toddler, Muhammad Fateh Aqil Mohd Nazmee was supposed to go for his chemotherapy treatment at the Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital but the treatment had to be postponed after his blood test showed that he was tested positive of Covid-19.
The revelation was made by Persatuan Sokongan Anak-Anak Kanser (Pesona) through its Facebook page yesterday. -MalaysiaGazette
