KLANG: A woman collapsed and died in front of a clinic where she had gone to seek treatment after feeling unwell on Wednesday (July 21).
It was subsequently found out that she tested positive for Covid-19.
South Klang police chief ACP Shamsul Amar Ramli said the incident had happened at about 9.45am on the same day outside the clinic located at Taman Sentosa here.
He issued the statement on Wednesday night after photos and a video of the woman lying outside the clinic went viral on social media.
"Police received a report about the incident that the woman had gone with her younger sister to seek treatment at a polyclinic at Taman Sentosa.
"Upon arriving at the front of the clinic, the woman suddenly collapsed and was unconscious," said ACP Shamsul Amar.
The victim was confirmed dead by paramedics who arrived at the scene, and her
body was then taken in an ambulance to the Shah Alam Hospital where the victim was later found to be Covid-19 positive following an antigen rapid test result.
"The woman has a history of hypertension and diabetes, and her death has been classified as Sudden Death Report (SDR) Covid-19," said ACP Shamsul Amar.
Klang is one of the districts that has been badly hit by the pandemic with Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah here being overwhelmed with Covid-19 patients.
