KUALA LUMPUR — Nov. 19, 2019: Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad suffered a slight nose bleed today during a press conference but is otherwise in good health.
News that he was rushed for medical attention is not true, said a message which the Prime Minister’s Office shared with the media.
A media outlet initially reported that 94-year-old Mahathir had ended his press conference prematurely after opening an event here and said that this was due to the nose bleed.
An aide said Mahathir inspected a biodiesel car after talking to the press.
“He is okay because after the PC (press conference) Tun went to inspect a biodiesel car,” he said to Bernama.
