KUALA LUMPUR: A woman who collapsed at the Sungai Besar market yesterday caused quite a stir when some people claimed it was related to Covid-19.
However, it was later confirmed that she was not a victim of the on-going pandemic.
It all started with a post uploaded on the Sungai Besar community page that read: “What happened? This is said to happen in Sungai Besar market, share here if you know the story.”
The post was attached with a photo showing Civil Defence Force personnel with face mask carrying out the woman in a stretcher out of the market.
A user, claiming to be the daughter of the woman commented under the post, explaining that her mother had fainted and it has nothing to do with Covid-19.
“Alhamdulillah, thanks everyone for the prayers, my mother is not a suspected patient of Covid-19. For your information, she collapsed because of low blood pressure and low blood sugar. She is recovering and is stable now,” she commented.
Meanwhile, Malay daily Sinar Harian reported that Sabak Bernam district police chief has confirmed that the incident was not related to Covid-19.
