Ms Sharina Mohd Sharif’s fears came true when she tested positive for Covid-19, along with four family members – her 3½-year-old son, her elderly parents and her youngest brother.
Ms Sharina, 47, and her son, Tengku Raeesh Ammar Mohd Yusof, were warded in KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH).
Her father, Mr Mohammad Sharif Imam Khan Sahib, 75, is in Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), her mother, Madam Fatimah Bevi Abdul Kadeer, 68, is in Changi General Hospital (CGH), while her brother, Mr Mohd Faizal Khan Mohd Sharif, 45, is isolating in their Ubi Avenue 1 home with their domestic helper.
Madam Fatimah first reported feeling flu symptoms and shortness of breath on 17 September. Three days later, her husband took a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) swab test when he consulted a general practitioner after coming down with flu symptoms and a cough.
