Deputy Minister of Tourism Arts and Culture, Datuk Guan Dee Koh Hoi confirmed the matter, saying he received the news from the deceased’s family members at about 5pm.

“The last time we were together was during the Special Meeting of the Dewan Rakyat in Parliament on 29 July. At about 4 or 5pm, I along with four escorts including Jaimin did a Covid-19 screening test before leaving Parliament and we were all confirmed negative,” he said.

“After the Special Meeting of the Dewan Rakyat was postponed, I returned to Sabah and last Monday, Jaimin who was still in Kuala Lumpur told me that he felt unwell and I asked him to do the Covid-19 screening test again.”

Jaimin tested positive and was quarantined and treated at a hospital since Monday last week before he breathed his last breath.

MOTAC also confirmed Jaimin’s death in a Facebook post yesterday (10 August).

Semoga Allahyarham Datuk Jaimin bin Samitah mendapat rahmat IlahiAl-Fatihah….
