Unfortunately, it seems that he has to temporarily put everything on hold after announcing on Facebook that he had tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday (Feb 7).

Stage 4a of COVID-19

To make matters worse, Kuan also revealed that he has been classified as a Stage 4a COVID-19 patient, where he has to receive supplemental oxygen as part of the treatment at the Serdang Hospital.

He further added that he has been free from a fever for the past 5 years and immediately turned off his mobile phone to rest after recording a high body temperature.

He also added that he had done the RTK-Ag (Rapid Antigen Test) twice and the results came back negative. It wasn’t until he did the RT-PCR test where he confirmed that he was infected.

‘Please pray for me’

In a separate Facebook post, Kuan also called upon netizens to pray for him.

Please pray for me. Category 4A COVID-19 positive. [I] require oxygen [to breathe now].

He also explained in detail how packed his schedule was a few days before he tested positive.

“I went from Kuala Lumpur General Hospital to Palong 5 Felda, Gemas a few days ago, then to Jelebu, and then back to Puchong. After spending 8 hours in the ambulance along with some rain and air conditioning, I had a cold, sore throat and was unable to speak.”

Get well soon, Uncle Kentang!
