KUALA LUMPUR – Barisan Nasional (BN) secretary-general Tan Sri Annuar Musa is required to undergo quarantine in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah after being in close contact with UMNO Supreme Council member Datuk Mohd Razlan Rafii, who was confirmed positive for COVID-19.
The Federal Territories Minister said that he had received an observation and surveillance order from the Kota Kinabalu Health Office Sept 24.
“With this order, I am required to undergo quarantine at a residence in Kota Kinabalu for a certain period,” he said in a statement on his Facebook.
Annuar said he had taken an RT-PCR test at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) two days ago and was confirmed negative.
He said he took another test, which was conducted by the Kota Kinabalu Health Department, and expects to get the result soon.
Annuar said he had to cancel all his schedule, including the talk with Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin tonight and the visit to Pitas and Kota Belud tomorrow.
“I will continue to work from home and will communicate with all levels of the election machinery as usual,” said Annuar, who is also the BN coordinator for the Sabah polls.
