PETALING JAYA: All schools in Sabah could be closed for two weeks following the death of a teacher on Friday (Oct 2) due to suspected Covid-19 infection, according to a source.

Confirmation is pending from the Education Ministry.

Meanwhile, Sabah Education Department (JPN) director Dr Mistrine Radin said details of the teacher's death were confidential.

Dr Mistirine confirmed that a male teacher had died but she was unable to give further details.
