PETALING JAYA: National Covid-19 Immunisation programme coordinating minister Khairy Jamaluddin has tested negative for Covid-19 after he was recently classified as a close contact.

“Did a RT-PCR test and the result just came back negative. Will update if my status changes since I volunteered at the PPV (vaccine dispensing centre) at WTCKL over the weekend, ” he said in a tweet on Monday (May 17).

Khairy was issued a home surveillance order for 10 days as he was deemed as a Covid-19 close contact by the Health Ministry.

At a virtual press conference earlier Monday, he said he was under quarantine and had to work from home for the next 10 days.

He showed off the pink bracelet he was wearing to reporters covering the virtual press conference, and as Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba came online, Khairy quipped: “You did this to me.”

“If you are positive, I also kena (get it), ” Dr Adham replied.
