The new Sabah Health Director, Dr. Rose Nani Mudin did not undergo the mandatory 14-day quarantine upon returning from Kuala Lumpur.
This afternoon, Dr. Rose was seen paying a courtesy visit to the Chief Minister of Sabah, Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor at the Sabah Administrative Centre (PPNS).
It is unclear whether Dr. Rose was given a special exemption.
Nevertheless, Sabah’s Official Covid-19 spokesperson, Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun previously mandated a 14-day quarantine for individuals entering Sabah.
inisabahbah.com yesterday also reported that the entourage of the Minister of Rural Development, Datuk Dr. Abd Latiff Ahmad received a special exemption to bypass the 14-day quarantine.
The exposé caused public uneasiness and anger.
Response on social media noted that Sabahans felt that the Minister should undergo the quarantine before touring Sabah, or postpone the trip.
For the record, the recorded new Covid-19 cases in Malaysia has breached the 10,000 mark in the past few days.
Of those figures, more than half were consistently from the Klang Valley area comprising Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.
