UMNO leader Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz's wife has denied allegations that she flouted home quarantine after a video showing her playing with her children by a beach in Bachok, Kelantan went viral

In the 21-second long video posted on her Instagram, Datin Seri Haflin Saiful can be seen wearing a pink wristband as she does some stretches before running into the sea.

Her children can also be seen in the background playing in the water.

"Best home quarantine ever," Haflin wrote in the caption of the video that was uploaded yesterday, 20 January.

In the comment section, she also said she will refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Shortly after the video went live, netizens started sharing screenshots of the video and asking why she could be outdoors while serving home quarantine.

In response to that, Haflin said the video was taken within her home compound

"It was my private beach, my territory in my compound," she told MalaysiaNow.

Haflin, along with her children and maid, tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, 19 January

According to The Star, her family tested positive a day after Nazri's COVID-19 test came out positive.

It is believed that Haflin and her family caught the virus from Nazri when she personally fetched him from the airport to catch a plane to Kota Bharu from Kuala Lumpur on 12 January.

Nazri tested positive after coming into close contact with blogger Zaharin Mohd Yasin, who attended his press conference in Kuala Lumpur on 12 January.

Currently, she is under self-quarantine at her private resort

Under the Ministry of Health's (MOH) guidelines, COVID-19 patients who show no symptoms or only mild symptoms — Category 1 and Category 2 patients respectively — are allowed to undergo home quarantine.

"My child and I as well as our assistant are Category 1 patients and we will be in quarantine for 10 days," she told mStar.

"My son showed no symptoms like fever or cough. I also make sure he remains active and I give him vitamins, lots of water, and fruit."

Haflin posted a series of Instagram Stories showing her days at the villa.
