Thank you for your question.

First and foremost, I understand your concern regarding this issue of coronavirus since there’s an outbreak of the virus.

We provide home testing services, accessible through this link: COVID-19 Screening At Home. You may find the details from the link.

For your information, PCR is a more accurate test than serology. As it takes sometimes for antibody to develop following infection. In addition to that, patient tested with positive serology test may not necessarily have an active disease as the test will identify patients who had been infected in the past.

You may consult a MOH doctor by clicking Ask Doctor at the Ministry of Health website (COVID-19 Portal) to ask any health issues related to COVID-19 starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.

After 5.00 pm till 12.00 am, please direct your enquiries to our DoctorOnCall website at this link https://www.doctoroncall.com.my/tanya/.

I hope you would always be in your best health and thank you.
