IPOH, Jan 19 — Padang Rengas MP Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz today confirmed that he was tested positive for COVID-19.
He said he took the swab test at the Raja Perempuan Zainab Hospital in Kota Bharu, Kelantan, as he was in the state yesterday.

“Yesterday, after discovering that he (Zaharin ) was tested positive, I rushed to the hospital and took the test. When the result came back positive, I continue to undergo quarantine at the hospital.
“I’m okay, just coughing a little yesterday, but getting better,” he told Bernama when contacted here.
When asked about his wife and son, Mohamed Nazri simply said: “They are okay.”
