KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 17 — Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Khairuddin Aman Razali, who breached the country’s mandatory Covid-19 quarantine requirement for those returning from abroad, has been admitted to hospital with an unknown illness.
The PAS minister took to Facebook to relate his ordeal, stopping short, however, of revealing what he was admitted for.
“Alhamdulillah. Being healthy or sick is the sunnah of life. First time in the ward as a patient today. Tomorrow is just a small procedure. Hopefully, it will only take a day or two before I am discharged.
“Last week, after an examination, my doctor had recommended a one-week break, but mounting tasks did not allow me to rest completely. Some programmes can only be delayed. A packed schedule awaits, and this includes Sabah and Miri, Sarawak at the end of this month. I hope I can get well again. Pray for me to stay healthy,” he wrote.
