PETALING JAYA: Dr Jemilah Mahmood’s statement calling Malaysia’s lack of mass testing as the weakest link in its pandemic management strategy is proof that former prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin didn’t listen to her when she was his adviser, says a former health minister.

Dzulkefly Ahmad took to Twitter to respond to Jemilah’s statement made during her interview with a local health publication.

“It is one thing if our recommendations from the Selangor Task Force for Covid-19 were not heard, but Tan Sri Dr Jemilah’s revelation is evidence that PM-8 (Muhyiddin) did not listen to his adviser.”

However, Jemilah responded by saying matters on FTTIS (find, test, trace, isolate and support) should not be politicised.

“FTTIS is already in the process of being improved. Not all countries, including ones in the west, have a good system in place and I am confident (ours) will be strengthened further,” she said, expressing hope that everyone could work together against Covid-19.
