KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 19 — Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has resumed work and seems none the worse after his nose started bleeding during a news conference this morning, his press secretary said.
Endie Shazlie Akbar also said the 94-year-old was not rushed away for medical treatment as believed earlier when the nosebleed happened midway through a press conference at the MPOB International Palm Oil Congress Exhibition here.
“Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad experienced a small case of nosebleed today; however, he is now well and there is nothing to worry.
“He is working as usual,” Endie said in a statement.
While taking questions from journalists, Dr Mahathir was seen wiping his nose with a white handkerchief. Red stains were spotted on it later.
Dr Mahathir’s escorts then interrupted the press conference and ushered the PM out.
