Two Malaysians who returned from Wuhan, China on a humanitarian evacuation mission on Tuesday, have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad held a press conference on Wednesday to give the public updates on the development of the coronavirus outbreak in the country.

He said the two, a 45-year-old and his nine-year-old son, were among the 107 people on board the special flight to bring Malaysians back from Wuhan, the epicentre of the outbreak.
