Muhyiddin clocks in after completing 14-day quarantine

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has returned to the office on Thursday (June 4) after completing his 14-day quarantine period, and the first order of business was an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong via video-conference.

Muhyiddin then chaired the weekly Cabinet meeting with all ministers in attendance.

This week's meeting was held via video conference with Cabinet ministers sitting in two separate meeting rooms at the Perdana Putra building.

This is the first time the Cabinet meeting is held via video conference, to ensure that social distancing and good health care is practiced.

Muhyiddin was placed under a 14-day quarantine after an officer present at the post Cabinet meeting on May 20 tested positive for Covid-19.

However, the Prime Minister continued to discharge his official duties at home through the quarantine period.

On June 3, Health director-general Datuk Noor Hisham Abdullah said the Prime Minister and others who had attended the post-Cabinet meeting were tested negative on their 14th day of isolation and were allowed to return to work.
