PETALING JAYA: A consultant paediatrician and neonatologist has come forward to say that it is not him on a viral audio clip claiming potential high rates of Covid-19 infections after Hari Raya.
Datuk Dr Musa Mohd Nordin, who is based in KPJ Damansara Specialist Hospital, took to Twitter to say that his voice was not on the audio clip that had gone viral on social media.
“The viral audio on Whatsapp is NOT me. I do NOT do anonymous stuff. All my writings, youtubes etc manifests my name or LOGO (sic), ” he said in a Twitter post on Friday (May 7).
News portal Malaysiakini had reported that the viral audio clip contained a prediction that Malaysia could reach a minimum of 10,000 new Covid-19 cases per day by the end of the month if Hari Raya visits were allowed.
KPJ Damansara Specialist Hospital has also issued a statement strongly refuting that the audio recording was made by Dr Musa.
"For the record, an official police report has been made. We would like to remind all netizens to immediately refrain from linking anything about the voice message to our consultant or to our hospital," it said in a statement on Friday (May 7).
House visits during Hari Raya are limited to 15 people on the first day in areas under a movement control order.
For conditional and recovery MCO areas, Hari Raya visits are allowed for the first three days of Syawal, with a limit of 20 and 25 people, respectively.
