PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is receiving treatment for an infection to his digestive system and not a recurrence of a tumour, says the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) on Sunday (July 4).
In a statement, the PMO said that after further checks, his doctors have confirmed that he needs intravenous antibiotics and will be discharged in a few days.
"The Prime Minister was warded on June 30 and is still receiving treatment for an infection to his digestive system. After an intensive health check-up, there is no proof that there is a recurrence of his old tumour," said the PMO.
The PMO added that he is now stable and recovering, and is allowed to continue with his duties while receiving treatment.
"On the advice of doctors, he is now still hospitalised to continue receiving intravenous antibiotics. He is expected to be discharged in a few days' time," says the PMO.
It added that Muhyiddin thanks everyone who has been praying for his health.
On June 30, Muhyiddin - a cancer survivor - was admitted to a hospital in Kuala Lumpur after reportedly suffering from diarrhoea since Tuesday (June 29).
"He was admitted to a hospital in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday for treatment and observation," the PMO said then.
