Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah on Wednesday revealed that Auditor-General Datuk Nik Azman Nik Abdul Majid did not display any symptoms such as a fever or cough, but he did experience lethargy during a post-cabinet meeting on May 20.

Nik Azman was so far the only person in the meeting who had tested positive for Covid-19.

Dr Noor Hisham said asymptomatic patients are also often able to get through mandatory body temperature scanning, as they do not have a fever.

“For example, that officer did not experience any symptoms. No fever or flu. But he had lethargy. Even though we have a device to record temperature, it doesn't mean that normal temperatures means no symptoms," he added.
