DEPUTY Prime Minister Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s health is improving, and he will return to work soon, said Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

“I want to convey Zahid’s greetings to all of you. Alhamdulillah, he is getting better.

According to Anwar, he had visited Ahmad Zahid earlier in the morning before going to the carnival.
