Policeman dies while undergoing self-quarantine for COVID-19

A policeman from the South Klang District Police Headquarters who was found positive for COVID-19, died while undergoing self-quarantine at home yesterday.

South Klang District Police chief ACP Shamsul Amar Ramli said the 53-year-old escort officer from the Internal Security and Public Order Division died at 9 pm, and confirmed that the latter was undergoing quarantine from Jan 23 to Feb 1.

“But on whether he died due to COVID-19 or otherwise, I cannot confirm,” he said when contacted by Bernama here today.

He was asked to comment on a statement by a non-governmental organisation that an escort officer had died due to COVID-19.
