SEREMBAN, March 5 -- The Negeri Sembilan Health Department (JKNNS) is investigating the authenticity of a viral message on WhatsApp claiming seven health workers from the Mantin Health Clinic in Nilai had tested positive for COVID-19.
Acting State Health director Dr Mohammad Faid Abd Rashid said the department was also aware of another message purporting that a child in the district of Port Dickson had been infected.
"The child is a contact of a Patient Under Investigation (PUI) whose lab tests came back negative for COVID-19," he said in a statement here tonight.
In this regard, he urged the public to be careful and not spread any fake news that could cause anxiety among the public.
