PETALING JAYA: Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein has fallen ill because of the haze.
“Jerebu masih teruk (Haze is still terrible) - I have already lost my voice and my nose is blocked,” he tweeted Sunday.
He also replied to some tweets on the haze situation and urged people to stay indoors.
“I'm asthmatic too - keep him indoors,” he advised a user named @keantee whose son has asthma.
Hishammuddin also agreed that the haze situation should be discussed at regional level as it appears to becoming a yearly affair.
The air quality here and in areas like Putrajaya, Port Klang, Shah Alam and Batu Muda has worsened as the API readings reached very unhealthy levels.
Schools in several states will also be closed on Monday.
