17th Wuhan Coronavirus Case In Malaysia Identified!

Unfortunately, the Malaysia Ministry of Health also announced that they identified the 17th case of the Wuhan coronavirus in Malaysia.

The new patient is a 65-year old lady, who is the mother-in-law of a Malaysian citizen who was the 9th Wuhan coronavirus patient in Malaysia.

She was apparently infected after sitting at the same table during the recent Chinese New Year festivities, but only fell sick on 5 February.

Once her son-in-law was confirmed to be the 9th case of Wuhan coronavirus, the District Health Office tested his family for 2019-nCoV as well.

That was when she was confirmed to be positive for 2019-nCoV, and admitted to the isolation ward at the Sungai Buloh Hospital. The other family members were negative.

She is currently in stable condition, and the Malaysia Ministry of Health is still tracing contacts.

This brings the total of Wuhan coronavirus cases in Malaysia to 17, albeit only 14 are still hospitalised since 3 have recovered and been discharged.

Everyone, you all need to stop panicking. The Wuhan coronavirus is new and scary, but we are more likely to be infected and killed by the influenza virus.

We just need to practice a few simple steps to stay safe :

  • Avoid suspected cases or disease hotpots, like hospitals, if possible!
  • Keep our hands clean with soap or hand sanitiser
  • Keep our home, office, vehicles, etc. clean
  • If you need to wear a surgical mask, make sure you put it on and remove it properly!
  • Thoroughly cook your food, and boil water before drinking
