Scores of healthcare staff at Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital (HUSM) in Kubang Kerian, Kelantan have been sent into quarantine after several tested positive for Covid-19, according to sources within the hospital.

This has affected operations at the semi-government hospital with at least two units temporarily closed while several wards are now running below their usual capacity due to being understaffed.
