A TOTAL of RM650 million has been spent on the procurement of assets and medicines for Covid-19, Deputy Health Minister II Aaron Ago Dagang told the Dewan Rakyat today.

The Kanowit MP said the ministry has applied the emergency procurement process and appointed 182 suppliers, in response to a question from Liew Vui Keong (Batu Sapi-Warisan), who had asked about the procurement process for RM30 million in Covid-19 test kits, which have been linked to Health Minister Dr Adham Baba’s clinic.
