Malaysia has recorded the first death case due to the Covid-19 virus, reported the State Disaster Management Committee.
The deceased is a Pastor from Emmanuel Baptist Church in Kuching, Sarawak, who succumbed to the illness and passed away today (17th March) at 11am at Sarawak General Hospital.
The source of the infection is yet to be identified by the State Health Department.
The deceased’s son left a message on Facebook to thank everyone for their support, according to Sin Chew Daily. He said that his mother and sister have tested positive for Covid-19 while he has tested negative.
“My dad will be cremated later today and because of the lockdown, how the memorial service would be done may be very different,” he wrote.
“As of now, I’m concern more of my mom and sis and pray that their immunity will clear it without any further complications.”
“Pray with me, for my health too that I won’t be tested positive and my sister and mom will be ok. We will come out stronger. Thank you”
Meanwhile, 193 close contacts of the deceased have been traced and are undergoing home-quarantine.
Sarawak recorded 11 new confirmed cases today.
Please stay safe and stay at home, everyone.
