Malaysian singer Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza is recuperating after contracting Covid-19 for the second time.

Siti, who recently completed her three-day quarantine, admitted that the infection this time was much worse compared to the first.

"It was a lot more painful. Unlike last year where there were no symptoms, I had really bad body aches and a high fever," the 44-year-old said at a recent interview in Kuala Lumpur.

Siti added that she was worried about her voice getting affected by the coronavirus again.

Last year, the singer experienced shortness of breath while singing after recovering from Covid-19. She also faced problems with her voice box while recording her album, Sitism.

Nevertheless, Siti assured fans that she's recovering well now.

"I can sing my old songs and my voice feels lighter. It took me almost a year to get my voice light like this again. I only have a cough now," she said.

During the interview, the Sehebat Matahari singer reminded everyone to take good care of their health now that Covid-19 cases are rising.

She also urged those who feel unwell to quickly go for a medical checkup.
