He was admitted into Hospital Kuala Lumpur on 18 March after experiencing fever, cough and sore throat for a week. He was given respiratory support as his condition continued to worsen, unfortunately, he passed away in the afternoon today.

The 8th Covid-19 death is a 69-year-old Malaysian man who attended the Sri Petaling tabligh gathering. He was hospitalised at Hospital Tumpat on 16 March as he was having fever since 12 March.
