The aftereffect of a second Covid-19 trial of a South African understudy, who is the nation’s record Omicron variation case, has brought negative back.
Malaysia reported its first sure instance of the Omicron variation recently, with wellbeing pastor Khairy Jamaluddin expressing that the record case was identified from an example of a private college understudy in Ipoh, Perak, who showed up in the country through Singapore last month.
In a Twitter post this evening, wellbeing chief general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said the second test on the 19-year-old understudy, and every one of the seven close contacts, had returned negative.
“Most recent from Perak. Every one of the eight examples of the present RT-PCR test for the Omicron variation returned negative, which is the list case for the principal Omicron case in the country (South African) and seven close contacts; the driver, a college representative, three classmates (two from Ghana and one from India) and two flat mates,” he tweeted.
At a question and answer session today, Khairy said the nation’s record instance of the Omicron variation included a 19-year-old female non-resident who showed up from South Africa by means of Singapore on Nov 19 and had gone through a Covid-19 PCR test upon landing in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
She was isolated for 10 days prior to being delivered on Nov 29.
Khairy said the consequences of the understudy’s PCR genotyping test that returned yesterday affirmed that she was contaminated with the Omicron variation.
He said the understudy had taken a transport to Ipoh and close contact following had been done on the other transport travelers and drivers, affecting five individuals.
