Malaysia's Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin gestures after his cabinet announcement in Putrajaya, Malaysia

Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin is in stable condition and is expected to be discharged from hospital soon after receiving treatment for a digestive system infection, his office said on Sunday.

Following advice from a team of doctors, Muhyiddin, who was hospitalised for diarrhoea on Wednesday, will remain in hospital for intravenous antibiotic treatment and is expected to be discharged “in a few more days”, his office said in a statement.

“His condition is stable and improving and he is allowed to work while receiving treatment,” it said.

A thorough health screening found no evidence that Muhyiddin was experiencing a recurrence of cancer, his office said. In 2018, Muhyiddin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He was declared cancer-free last June.
