KUALA LUMPUR, April 7 – An education foundation has donated RM150,000 to the government’s Covid-19 fund.
NAMA Foundation’s donation was presented yesterday to Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin by lawyer Rosli Dahlan, trustee of the foundation and a board member of UDA Holdings Berhad, who has recovered from coronavirus.
“In early March, UDA became one of the worst government-linked companies (GLCs) to suffer the consequences when some of their top management members tested positive for Covid-19,” Muhyiddin said in a Facebook post.
“They were quarantined in hospitals, with the majority being placed at the Sungai Buloh Hospital (HSB), a hospital dedicated to treating infectious diseases.”
A top UDA Holdings official has been confirmed as Patient 26, whom health authorities associated with 114 coronavirus cases involving four generations of spread of the virus in Malaysia. A fourth-generation patient is someone who was infected by a person, who had been infected by another person, who in turn had been infected by someone else.
Muhyiddin further added that UDA Holdings has contributed to the upgrading of quarantine wards in several hospitals as the government expects a peak in cases in mid-April; and that some of the UDA staff who have recovered from Covid-19 were also involved in a blood serum vaccine project.
