Some spend the festive holidays in hospital

PUTRAJAYA: Farmer Zulkifli Hus­­sein has to spend Hari Raya in the hospital after being stricken with dengue.

But his family made sure he did not miss out on the festivities by bringing him ketupat and rendang when they visited him.

Zulkifli, in his 20s, is from Teluk Intan and travelled to Serdang about two weeks ago to celebrate Raya with his brother’s family.

His brother, Sobri Hussein, 25, said Zulkifli was diagnosed with dengue and admitted to hospital on the night of Hari Raya eve.

“We were supposed to have a family gathering but we could not,” he said.

“We managed to spend time with him in the hospital the next day.

“Hopefully, he will be discharged in the next two days and we can postpone our celebrations till then,” Sobri said on Tuesday.

Zulkifli was among the patients Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam visited at the Putrajaya Hospital on Monday.

The minister also talked with the doctors who were on duty.

“I hope those who are sick and unable to spend the day with their families will get well soon,” Dr Subramaniam said.

“The Health Ministry acknowledges the sacrifice of our staff and doctors who are on duty during this period,” he added.
