Dewan Rakyat was informed that Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan, Energy and Natural Resources Minister, had tested positive for Covid-19.
"I am representing the minister. I was informed that I will be taking over this important task this morning," said Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department.
Takiyuddin came close to being infected once when he was identified as a close contact in September. News reports suggested he tested negative eventually.
