A Chinese girl has recovered from the coronavirus in Malaysia and is allowed to return home, a Malaysian health official said in a statement late on Tuesday. The four-year-old became the first of 10 patients in Malaysia , including nine visiting Chinese, to have recovered after contracting the virus. Health Ministry director general Noor Hisham Abdullah said detection tests were repeated twice and the results came back negative. “She is now is good health and has been allowed to return home,” he said. The girl and her family would soon return to China with a health certificate issued by the hospital, said chief of press at the Chinese embassy, Tang Tang, to reporters by text message. The child was diagnosed last week and treated in an isolation ward at a hospital in Langkawi, a popular island holiday destination. “This case shows the 2019-nCoV is treatable and the patient can recover fully, as many other reported cases in China,” said Noor Hisham said. “The perception that this disease is fatal to those who contract it is inaccurate,” he said in a statement. The girl was reported infected on January 29, and had undergone treatment at a hospital in the state of Kedah. Malaysia currently has 10 official coronavirus cases, nine of which are Chinese nationals. The latest case, a Malaysian citizen who had not visited China, was confirmed on Tuesday. The 41-year-old man had visited neighbouring Singapore for a week from January 16 during which he attended meetings that also involved delegates from China , Malaysian Health Minister Dzulkefly Ahmad said. “The Malaysian victim has not been to China. He met Chinese delegates from Wuhan in Singapore,” Noor Hisham said. The man was the country’s first citizen to be infected with the coronavirus .
