Dr C. Suresh Kumar, Infectious Disease Physician at Hospital Sungai Buloh, said that there has been no specific treatments given to the patients.

“We treat them to the symptoms they show accordingly like coughs, fever and flu,” he added.

Dr Suresh told Astro Awani that the patients are background-checked before the treatments begin as the patients’ travel histories are one of the most crucial information the doctors need to know before proceeding with any treatment.

Samples of phlegm are also taken to the Medical Research Institute for tests and “if the result of the test comes back positive, we isolate the patients and keep a close monitor on them.”

Additionally, Dr Suresh says that safety precautions are crucial for the hospital staff. They have to wear special protective clothing while the isolation ward is located further away from the other wards.

Dr Suresh also added that the doctors handling the patients in the hospital are experienced specialists who have been active in dealing with previous virus outbreak like SARS and Mers-Cov, which at least gives them the experience in handling Wuhan virus cases.

As of today, the infected patients in Sungai Buloh Hospital include four China nationals – two adults and two kids, aged 11 and two years old. The four patients are family-related and their condition has been reported to be stable.
