Maritime Affairs and Fishery Minister Edhy Prabowo has tested positive for COVID-19, according to House of Representatives Commission IV deputy chairman Daniel Johan.

“I heard the news from a ministry staff member,” Daniel said as quoted by kompas.com on Tuesday, adding that he received the information on Sept. 3.

Daniel claimed he had immediately contacted Edhy and wished him a speedy recovery. 

He also urged anyone who had recent contact with Edhy to get tested. 

“I was informed on Sept. 3, but I had to ask for the exact date. However, I have also been informed that he is currently in good condition,” Daniel said. (dpk)
