In her caption, Nora said: “With a heavy heart I want to inform all of you that I have tested positive for COVID-19 today. I took the test yesterday because I was informed that I was a category C close contact.” 

“The result came back this morning and it was positive even though I had no symptoms. Now I am under quarantine in a separate room from my family, so that my husband and children are safe. They have also taken the COVID-19 test,” she added.

She also added that she was supposed to have her AstraZeneca vaccine on Sunday morning at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), but she was advised by the ministry to quarantine herself first. 

“If you were with me between May 4th and May 8th, please get yourself tested. Take care of yourself and I am very sorry,” she ended her post. 

Meanwhile, Oh My English! actress, Tiz Zaqyah also shared the news with her fans on her Instagram account. 

She said that she was experiencing symptoms such as coughing and chills. 

In the post, she said: "It all started when I started coughing and my body was shivering. I can feel that my body was not normal. It wasn’t a normal fever.”

We hope that both of them will feel better soon! 

Guys, let’s not be complacent and remember to always maintain physical distancing, wear a face mask and adhere to the SOPs when you’re out and about! 

Stay safe!
