Hi there. Thank you for your question.

First and foremost, I understand your concern regarding this issue since there’s an outbreak of coronavirus. I found that you have no symptoms.

So now you’re concern and wondering if you should get yourself checked. So before anything else, we should assess your risk profile. It can be done through this link, Assess Your Risk. At the end of the test, you will receive a result and please act accordingly.

For more information on coronavirus, please visit the official Ministry of Health portal at the link here (MOH COVID-19 Portal). You can also consult a doctor for free regarding your condition by clicking Ask Doctor link on the portal.
