Malaysian Singer Siti Sarah Raisuddin Passes Away Due To Covid-19

The number of daily Covid-19 cases in Malaysia is still in the thousands. Unfortunately, this also means that there is a higher chance for those who have tested Covid-19 positive to succumb to it.

A Malaysian singer, Siti Sarah Raisuddin, 37, passed away on Monday (9 Aug) after contracting Covid-19.

Her husband, Shahmira Muhamad, took to Instagram to share the sad news.


Ms Siti Sarah was also 8 months pregnant when she succumbed to Covid-19. Thankfully, doctors were able to save the baby boy.

Family of singer contracted Covid-19 from domestic helper

Ms Siti Sarah first posted on Instagram about her family contracting Covid-19 on 25 Jul.

Her husband, also known as Shuib Sepahtu, and their 3 other children – Uwais Alqarni, 10, Dzahira Talita Zahra, 8, and Ariq Matin, 6 – all tested Covid-19 positive after their domestic helper contracted the virus.

The Star reported that Siti had to be hospitalised on 4 Aug after her oxygen levels dropped and she could not stop coughing.

She was later admitted into the Canselor Tuanku Muhriz UKM Hospital (HCTM), where she had to be intubated on 6 Aug.
