The couple was promptly arrested and the trio were handed over to Johor health authorities, said Johor police chief Kamarudin Md Din. They are now all at the isolation ward of the HSA. It is learnt that a doctor at the HSA lodged a police report against the parents on Saturday night after they resisted a directive for their son to be quarantined and removed the child from the hospital. According to the police report, the child had symptoms of influenza, including fever and cough, and was being monitored and tested for the coronavirus. But the boy’s father was insistent on returning home, despite being informed that they would not get past the strict screening and security at the airport.

The three were part of a group of eight Chinese tourists who had been quarantined at a hotel in the city. Hours later, a fourth case was confirmed, also involving a Wuhan tourist in Johor Baru.
