PETALING JAYA - Tun Dr Siti Hasmah is getting worried about the health of her husband Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, one week after he was sworn in as the nation's seventh Prime Minister.

"I am worried about his health as he does not have enough sleep. His sleeping time is used to go through government documents.

"On one night, he went through 200 documents until 4-5am. At 7am, he was already in the office," she said in a post on the Kelab Che Det Facebook page.

Her concern was echoed by many Malaysians who also expressed their worry that Dr Mahathir, who turns 93 this year, was working too hard.

"I am very worried about Tun … I hope Muslims will pray for Tun this Ramadan," said Wai Yap.

Wong Chin Kuan said that he prayed for Dr Mahathir's health and happiness every day.

"He is a Malaysian hero," he said.

Siew Hoong Wong hope the Cabinet would be announced and sworn in urgently as Dr Mahathir could not be working by himself.
