SIBU, June 7: It’s home-sweet-home for Lanang MP Alice Lau after she was discharged from a Covid-19 low-risk and treatment centre today.

Lau, after testing positive for the novel coronavirus last month, was placed in the quarantine centre, the location of which she declined to reveal.

In a Facebook post today which included a photo of her wearing a white wristband, the two-term parliamentarian expressed her appreciation to the frontliners for taking care of her at the quarantine centre.

She still needs to undergo one more day of quarantine but at home.

“Discharged from the quarantine centre today. Need to do home quarantine for one more day. Thank you frontliners! Thank you all for the best wishes!” she said.


On May 27, she revealed that she was in quarantine at a designated quarantine centre under the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Sibu.

“I am feeling fine, and am in a stable condition. My son who has been in close contact with me has tested negative but will go through proper home quarantine and will have a second swab in the coming days,” she disclosed then.

She pledged to take all necessary precautions including helping MOH to identify and contact those in close proximity with her for further investigation or tests if needed.

“I also would like to reassure members of the public who came into contact with me, not to panic but to also get tested and continue to take the necessary precautions to avoid the spread of the virus,” she added.

A day later on May 28, she wrote on her Facebook page again, telling people to stop spreading fake news on where she had contracted the virus.

“I didn’t attend any social gathering. Those who are spreading fake news, please stop!’ she wrote. — DayakDaily
