KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) Governor, Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz is in good health and did not suffer a heart attack as has been circulated on social media.

“She is fine and well, in the office,” said the central bank’s corporate communication department when contacted by Bernama here, today.

It added that Zeti was working at the office as usual and was not hospitalised as claimed.

Based on BNM’s calendar of events on its website, the central bank will announce the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) performance for the second quarter on Aug 13.

The briefing on GDP performance normally will be chaired by BNM Governor.

Meanwhile, according to a report by an online news portal, Zeti was said to be absent from work on Monday morning, but nevertheless began her work in the afternoon.

In the last two days, Zeti also attended various in-house meetings at BNM, hence refuting rumours that she is having health problems.--BERNAMA
