Sabah's first Covid-19 case in Tawau dies
TAWAU: Sabah's first Covid-19 case here died on Friday, Daily Express has been able to confirm.

His wife posted the news of his passing at 6.48pm in a Tawau Muslim women’s group on WhatsApp, which Daily Express sighted.

The widow told Daily Express his remains will be laid to rest Friday evening.

The 58-year-old man was a tabligh member who attended a recent Kuala Lumpur mosque gathering reported to be the latest transmission cluster of the disease.

After this report, the Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre issued a statement confirming the death, saying case #152 had suffered severe acute respiratory infection and was given breathing assistance in an intensive care unit, but his condition kept worsening until he breathed his last at 6.27pm.
