JOHOR BARU: Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Dr Sahruddin Jamal has reiterated that the death of seven-year-old Nur Dinie Damia Muhammad Noor Ain is not linked to Influenza A as claimed by some on social media.
He said that the victim tested negative for influenza based on clinical reports.
"The test results from Hospital Sultanah Aminah showed that the victim tested negative for influenza.
"Our statements are based on clinical data from Hospital Sultanah Aminah and I would not comment on results from a private hospital," he said to reporters after officiating a Health Carnival organised by Malaysia Medical Association Johor at a mall here.
Dr Sahruddin said this when asked to comment on a Facebook post allegedly made by one of the family members of the victim that has been making rounds on social media. In it, the person expressed disappointment and claimed that Nur Dinie had the influenza.
