Investigations showed that the man boarded a Qatar Airways flight from Paris to Doha. He then continued the journey to KLIA and arrived in Malaysia (KLIA)  at 8.15am on Thursday.

He mentioned that the man was screened for Covid-19 at KLIA by the Malaysian Ministry Of Health officers and the results were negative. However, he is still required to undergo self-quarantine and meet with the Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC) Kedah team for the second Covid-19 screening.

MOH Langkawi also contacted the team in KLIA to get the approval for the foreign man to conduct self-quarantine at his own house reported Harian Metro.
