He is reported to be in a stable condition.
According to Shuib, he was traumatised by the news and it prompted him to rush his brother-in-law to the hospital for immediate treatment. “My brother-in-law has been quarantined for 8 days but his oxygen level has been declining. Luckily, his condition is still stable and he is being treated at Serdang Hospital,” remarked Shuib.
He added, “I panicked when my brother-in-law underwent an examination and his oxygen level decreased between 94 and 95%. I asked him not to wait and quickly get treatment. I humbly asked all of you to pray for my brother-in-law.” Shuib who admits to being phobic about the situation also advised people to take good care of their health and take proper vitamins to keep the body immune.
In related news, singer and actor, Naim Daniel also requested for any insurance agent to avoid using the story of Siti Sarah’s passing as a means to increase their sales capital. The singer made the remark on his official Twitter account on Monday (9th August).
“If there are any insurance agents who use the late Siti Sarah’s passing as a means to talk about bequest and so on; You have lost the humanity in you,” read his Twitter post. The “Sumpah” singer also left a reprimanding comment in an actor’s video on Instagram as the individual apparently made the sad news as one of his social media content.
“I do believe that you’ve heard about “timing sensitivity”. Do not take things lightly and simply do what you guys think is right. Even more so when you didn’t even get the consent from the family. Let’s take it this way, you don’t want your family members’ death to be exploited by anyone, right? Simple math brother, I’m here to talk about empathy,” the singer remarked in the lengthy comment.
On Monday (9th August), Malaysians were saddened by the news of Siti Sarah who breathed her last at HUKM. Shuib confessed that the late Siti Sarah had not received her Covid-19 vaccination which resulted in the virus causing severe damage to her lungs.
During his live session on Monday after Siti Sarah’s burial, Shuib admitted his mistake of taking the pandemic and the vaccination lightly. He advised the 600k IG live viewers at the time to get vaccinated and hope for his story to be an eye opener for the public.
As a result, Siti Sarah’s death has stirred the public to be more aware of the severity of the virus, especially for pregnant ladies. A Twitter user updated that many pregnant mommies have since gone to receive their first dose of vaccination. Most of them, she informed, became aware of it because of Siti Sarah’s incident.
During this trying time, it is best for us to keep our sensitivity in check and be more aware of other people’s feelings, especially those who are affected by Covid-19 in any way. Stay safe and get your vaccine everyone!
