KUALA LUMPUR (March 2): Wong Chen (pictured), Member of Parliament for Subang, has placed himself in quarantine today and tomorrow, following news that a staff of Khazanah Nasional Bhd came down with coronavirus (COVID-19) and was in touch with an ex-minister and a deputy minister about a week ago.
In his Facebook post today, Wong said he will quarantine himself until the test results of the former minister and former deputy minister are out. He did not name the ministers.
"Tests are being conducted on the ex-minister and ex-deputy minister. The ex-minister and ex-deputy minister have attended many political meetings during the week long crisis," he wrote.
"In view of the fact that the Khazanah COVID-19 victim was in touch with an ex-minister and a deputy minister about a week ago, we have to take extra precautions," wrote Wong.
"Please do not panic, the main aim is to be knowlegable and help contain the spread. Those who have come in contact with a Covid 19 victim, should practice a bit of self quarantine discipline, and if sickly, to contact the hospital for tests. I am perfectly fine, healthwise this morning. I will be working from home and will engage my officers via conference call at 10 am," he added
