KUALA LUMPUR, May 23 -- A prominent social activist today called on Malaysians to pray for the good health of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who is now undergoing a 14-day self-quarantine after an officer who attended his post-Cabinet meeting on Wednesday tested positive for Covid-19.
"I call on Malaysians to sincerely and seriously pray for the good health and well-being of our prime minister so that he be given strength and the necessary capability to carry out his heavy responsibilities," said Tan Sri Robert Phang, the chairman of the Social Care Foundation.
A statement from the Prime Minister's Office said that Muhyiddin had tested negative for Covid-19 but has to be in self-quarantine at home for two weeks beginning yesterday.
"Muhyiddin is a tested leader for all Malaysians right from early in his political career as Menteri Besar of Johor...," Phang said.
He praised Muhyiddin as a leader with patience "who listens to the voice of the rakyat".
"I appeal to fellow Malaysians to support our prime minister to move the country forward. We the rakyat have to be fair and kind in showing our support.
" I wish Muhyiddin and his family Selamat Hari Raya," Phang said.
