Respect His Privacy?

A report indicates that an “aide” to Minister Azmin (unstated if paid from public funds) has called for “respect for privacy” in connection with claims that Azmin is Covid positive.

Why? Is Azmin some super sort of person whose health status is a secret? He is a public servant, like it or not and the public, who pay his salary and expenses are entitled to know if he is able to do what he is paid to do; from public funds. No doubt he regards himself as a superior being who cannot be questioned. But as long as he is paid from public funds the public has a right to know.

So let him with put his “aide” right and inform the voters about his state of health.
