Wong Ling Biu (simplified Chinese: 黄灵彪; traditional Chinese: 黃靈彪; pinyin: Huáng Língbiāo) is a Malaysian politician who served as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Sarikei from May 2013 to November 2022.[1] He is a member of the Democratic Action Party (DAP), a component party of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) and formerly Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coalitions.

On 7 March 2020, Wong was admitted at Sibu Hospital as a patient under investigation (PUI) for COVID-19 and was later tested positive on 15 March 2020.[2] After a 79-day admission including 42 days of coma, Wong was finally discharged on 30 May 2020.[3] His son, the national hammer thrower champion Jackie Wong Siew Cheer, had also contracted the COVID-19 virus from him, was discharged earlier on 27 May after 73 days treatment at the same hospital since 16 March.[4] In 2021, Wong was among six elected representatives from Sarikei Division to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.[5]

In 2022 Malaysian general election, Wong decided not to contest for the Sarikei parliamentary seat.[6][7] His son, Roderick Wong, which was his special assistant, replaced him for the quest of the seat.[8] However, his son Roderick failed to defend the seat.[9]
