PETALING JAYA: A 75-year-old Malaysian living in London has passed away after testing positive for Covid-19, according to a report.

Husin Long - who died at the Royal Free Hospital - is survived by his wife Zauyah Embi, his four children and several grandchildren.

Berita Harian reported that Husin's son Mohammad Ali said that his father's Covid-19 test came back positive just before he died at 5pm on Sunday (March 22).

“When he was admitted two days ago with breathing difficulties, the medical team was not too sure as he had several health issues.

"His lungs were not functioning, and they suspected it was due to Covid-19," he was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, the Kelab Melayu London Facebook page said that Husin had been unwell for the last 10 years.

"We are not sure of the cause yet until we see the death certificate. But he has been unwell for the last 10 years at least," it said.

Husin and Zauyah were members of the Kelab Melayu London, which was established in the early 1960s for seafarers, students and travellers.

It is unclear if Husin's death is part of the Covid-19 statistics in London.
