Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah on Sunday said some of the participants of the Sri Petaling tabligh had visited 120 tahfiz schools more than five times.

Dr Noor Hisham added that the ministry is keeping track of the tahfiz students who have returned to their hometowns for contact tracing purpose, and urged society not to stigmatise them.

The Health director-general also denied the information going viral on Facebook of a child from Alor Setar, Kedah, who was claimed to have tested positive for Covid-19 after being infected by a relative who returned to the village from Negri Sembilan.
