After 45 days of battling for her life, the wife of actor Badrol Shah Abdul Manan or Badrol Shah, Farah Sheila Mazlan breathed her last at HKL around 8:15am yesterday (Thursday, 26th August). The 37-year-old Farah Sheila was pronounced dead, 23 days after she was put under an induced coma due to Covid-19 infection.
The news was personally confirmed by Badrol Shah on his Instagram. The actor said that he was informed of his wife’s passing on Thursday morning through a video call by doctors who attended to his wife.
“My wife breathed her last at HKL after 45 days of fighting Covid-19,” his IG caption read. He informed in another Instagram post that, “The hospital is assisting us in arranging her burial. My family and I accept Farah Sheila’s demise with peace and calmness.”
Previously, Badrol through his Facebook post mistakenly thought that his wife was confirmed dead on 10th August. However, not long after, the actor uploaded another post informing of a misunderstanding about the explanation told by the doctor. On that day, some doctors informed Badrol that his wife had passed away in the afternoon. Another doctor contacted him later that day informing him that Farah Sheila was still alive but in critical condition in the ICU.
For the uninitiated, the late Farah Sheila, who was a teacher at Sekolah Rendah Agama Lembah Keramat was tested positive for Covid-19 on 20th July and her condition immediately worsened. She was believed to have been infected with the virus when she was around their housing area at the Desa Rejang PPR, Setapak.
Badrol Shah and Farah Sheila were married in 2017 and they have a 2-year-old daughter, Putri Daaiyatul Insyirah along with three other daughters aged 7 to 12 from Farah’s previous marriage. Our condolences to Badrol Shah’s family and may her soul rest in peace among the believers.
