His mother, Datin Patimah Ismail says that she brought her son to the hospital on Tuesday morning after he complained about a headache and a high fever since two days ago.

"The doctors have still not yet given us an official confirmation about his fever, and he has just underwent a blood test for further testing. Syamsul wants to be wed in the hospital if he is still unwell."
