WOMEN, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Harun became the latest minister to test positive for Covid-19.

Rina, who tested positive last night is the second Cabinet member after Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economy) Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed was tested for the virus on Saturday night.

Rina had undergone Covid-19 screening at the Putrajaya health clinic in Putrajaya yesterday morning.

A statement from her ministry said she has since been admitted to the Sungai Buloh Hospital for close monitoring by health and medical staff.

“She also expressed her apology for any difficulties arising from such development,” read the statement.

Though hospitalised, she will ensure all matters related to welfare work, protection and empowerment of targeted groups apart from the operation of the ministry function as usual.
