AirAsia confirmed this and noted that Kamarudin had fully recovered.

“We can confirm that executive chairman of AirAsia Group Kamarudin Meranun had Covid-19 but is not in ICU and has fully recovered.

“AirAsia will not be providing any further information,” it said when contacted on Friday (Oct 22).
