KUCHING, Jan 23: Minister for Local Government and Housing Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian has been tested negative on the second Covid-19 swab test.

During a live Facebook session of Kuching South City Council (MBKS) mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng today, Dr Sim revealed that he received the release order from the hospital yesterday.

“I just received my release order yesterday. The first thing that I did after receiving the release order was to go for a haircut,” he said.

On January 17, Dr Sim went for a Covid-19 swab test at the Batu Kawa health clinic after having close contact with a Covid-19 patient on January 8.


Following his first Covid-19 swab test, Dr Sim was required to undergo a 14-day stay home order (SMO) from January 8 until January 22. — DayakDaily
