"Yes, we are accepting and treating Covid-19 patients but we will continue to operate as usual.

"We will continue to see other patients, including emergency and trauma cases," it said in a Facebook post.

A viral message had claimed that apart from Covid-19 patients, only those with appointments would be allowed to seek treatment at TJH.

The sender had also claimed that non-Covid-19 patients would have to go to either the Tampin or Kuala Pilah hospitals for consultation and treatment.
