My son just being confirmed for covid positive (CT is above 20). Kindly advise on what should I do next?
Hello, thank you for your enquiry.
For your information, Covid positive case should be updated via MySejahtera app, and inform the relevant department, CPRC via 0388810200/+60178429454 for further assessment.
After a complete assessment, your son will be decided to be quarantine at home or in the quarantine center, depending on his stage of disease.
He will need to be quarantine for 10 to 14 days, then repeat another covid assessment test after that. This is to check for his infectious rate after quarantine, if it showed CT value >40, he will be free from quarantine.
Make sure to follow strict SOP while taking care of your son during quarantine to prevent yourself from infection. This measure is same for those who have completed Covid vaccination, because no vaccination can provide 100% rate of protection from infection.
For more information, you may contact us for an online consultation for further information and assistance.
Thank you, we hope our answer has been helpful.
