Prominent property consultant Michael Geh dies of Covid-19 complications


GEORGE TOWN: Michael Geh, one of the country's foremost property consultants, has died of cardiac arrest after contracting Covid-19.

The 57-year-old, a regular at property conferences and speaking circuits around the world, breathed his last at 1.45pm on Saturday (May 15) after developing complications while battling the disease at the Penang Hospital.

His sister Linda said Geh was admitted to the hospital's intensive care unit on May 9 after testing positive for Covid-19.

"He had hypertension and according to doctors, the virus weakened his heart and kidneys. He was intubated and we thought he had a fighting chance," she said.

Geh, a former student of St Xavier's Institution here, was a registered valuer and real estate agent and senior partner of Raine & Horne International Zaki and Partners Sdn Bhd.

He was well known in property circles and his views were much sought-after by associations and governments.

The funeral service will be held at 2.45pm Sunday (May 16) at the Batu Gantung crematorium.
