KUALA LUMPUR, February 9— 3 people infected with the novel coronavirus (nCoV-2019) have been cured, recovered and discharged from hospital in Malaysia.
This evening, a 63-year-old Chinese national has been recovered and discharged.
Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said in a statement this afternoon, the man had been given symptomatic treatment at Hospital Kuala Lumpur’s (HKL) isolation ward.
“After observation and symptomatic treatment, we deemed he did not need any more antiviral treatment.”
“Two back-to-back tests done on him on February 7 and 8 came back negative for the 2019-nCoV virus. The patient is allowed to leave this evening,” Dr Noor said in a Facebook post.
On February 4, a four-year–old girl from China was also recovered and discharged at the Sultanah Maliha Hospital in Langkawi, Kedah.
The 3rd person who was recovered from the infection was a 40-year-old man from Wuhan.
He received treatment at the Permai Hospital in Johor Baru and discharged on February 8.
Malaysia has had a total 17 cases of the virus. Twelve of the patients were from China and five are Malaysians.
At least 900 people have died and 39,800 have been infected by the virus in mainland China as of today, and the number is increasing day by day.
Correction: Dear readers and followers, please note – In this post, Malaysia World News (MWN) reporters did not mean that ” Malaysia has found a new coronavirus vaccine.` We said ” Malaysia finds cure”. We did not say ” Malaysia finds a vaccine.” The meaning of the word `cure` is totally different from the meaning of the word `vaccine`. Please see the Dictionary.
The post refers to `3 Covid-19 patients were cured and recovered after having been given some symptomatic treatment in Malaysia on Feb 9. The post has never mentioned the word ” vaccine” at all, as some people interpreted it from the headline and commented before having even read the whole story.
MWN does not need to use inauthentic means to generate engagement, because this piece of news is already so important and interesting and worth reading 1000 times, especially in Malaysia , by Malaysians.
The news that these first 3 Covid-19 patients were cured and recovered and discharged from hospital (in Feb 9) was a great news for the whole nation, because at first (in early Jan and Feb) people here in Malaysia ( as in all over the world) were thinking that Covid-19 patients `cannot survive`, they would only die. But when the first patients were recovered and survived from the deadly disease it was a hit, a big news that everyone got engaged. The recovery of the 3 patients gave great hopes to people and reduced fear and anxiety in within.
By the way, as for today Friday (May 9) more than 4,864 covid-19 patients have been recovered in Malaysia after receiving the treatment, for your information.
MWN can assure our readers that over the past 4 years we have never reported inauthentic or false news, and we will continue to provide our readers and followers the real news about Malaysia and bring to life what really matters. Thanks, stay safe!
MWN apologizes to our readers for any inconveniences, and to avoid confusion, we have already changed the simple headline above. Thanks Africa Check for bringing this matter.
