SUPP, stop your malicious lies about my test results!

Press Statement By Chong Chieng Jen
7th October 2020

I have tested negative for Covid-19 by Jabatan Kesihatan Negeri Sarawak on 2-10-2020 upon my return from Kuala Lumpur. Attached is a copy of my test results issued by Jabatan Kesihatan Negeri Sarawak showing that I have tested negative for Covid-19.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the medical staff and the frontliners for their strong commitment and professionalism in handling the matter. Rest assured that DAP Sarawak is with you in our fight together against the pandemic.

I hope the release of the negative result will put to rest the smearing and defamatory statements spread by SUPP against me, intending to create anxiety and fear amongst the people.

In fact, as the Government of the day and having its leaders amongst members of the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee, SUPP has access to my test results anytime. Yet, even though my negative test result was out on 4-10-2020, SUPP continued to lie to the people and create fear by insinuating that I am infected and can be infectious, thereby unnecessarily creating unease and anxiety amongst the people.

What SUPP is doing is not constructive to the fight against Covid-19 and it is merely abusing its position as the ruling party to spread rumours and fake news, even though I have complied fully with the SOP set down by the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee. SUPP’s irresponsible act will only hamper and disrupt the genuine efforts of the Ministry of Health and the frontliners to contain the spread of Covid-19.

The fight against Covid-19 must be a non-partisan fight and it is a fight by the people as a whole regardless of race, religion, language, and political affiliation. DAP Sarawak has been and will continue to give full co-operation to the Ministry of Health in our fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and comply with all directives issued.

Let us work together to overcome this crisis.

DAP Sarawak Chairman
MP for Stampin
