Hi Doctor, if my colleague’s nephew’s teacher is tested positive for coronavirus, and my colleague had once contacted with his nephew however my colleague and nephew is not being tested and no symptoms of coronavirus, do I have the chance of being infected? My colleague last contacted with his nephew was on 9 March

Hi!

Thank you for your question. The person who is in direct contact with a positive case of COVID-19 is the one at high risk of contracting COVID-19. Otherwise, unidentified direct contact or public contact may be the cause of COVID-19 infection.

I hope this answers your question. Thank you.
