IPOH, September 28 — Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu will be absent from all official functions for two weeks as he is undergoing home quarantine following his return from Sabah on September 20.
The Mentri Besar’s Office in a statement today said that Ahmad Faizal decided to self-quarantine despite the negative result of his Covid-19 screening.
“For the information of media friends, the Mentri Besar underwent Covid-19 screening after returning from Sabah on September 20 and the results were negative.
“However, the Mentri Besar decided to undergo quarantine at home (self-quarantine) as a proactive measure,” the statement read.
