“He returned to Malaysia on January 23, and on January 29, he received treatment at a private hospital because of fever and cough,” Dzulkefly said.

“Then, he was referred to the Sungai Buloh Hospital on February 2, and was admitted to the isolation ward. He was confirmed for the 2019-nCoV yesterday.”

Datuk Dzulkefly said the man is in stable condition and receiving treatment at Sungai Buloh Hospital, and added that the patient’s immediate family would be put on home surveillance for 14 days.

The Ministry of Health has also contacted its Singapore counterpart to commence contact tracing.
