JOHOR BARU: The Health Ministry will issue a statement regarding the news about the death of a woman who reportedly died from breathing complications allegedly caused by pollution in Pasir Gudang.

State Health, Culture, and Heritage Committee chairman Mohd Khuzzan Abu Bakar said that Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad had received the full medical report and would make an announcement soon.

"We have given the deceased's medical report to the minister that includes all of her medical histories," he said when contacted here on Sunday (July 7).

Earlier in KUALA LUMPUR, Dr Dzulkefly said he expected to receive a full report the death.

"Once I get the full report from the health department director there, I may release a statement about it," he said after a press conference at the launch of an anti-dengue project involving Wolbachia bacteria-infected Aedes mosquitoes.

Dr Dzulkelfly was referring to a complaint made by a grieving husband on social media who claimed that his wife's death could have been caused by the chemical pollution in Pasir Gudang.

A poster, as well as a news video clip regarding the woman's death, have been circulating on WhatsApp and Facebook.
