Hi there. Thank you for your question.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding the possibility of your boss contracting coronavirus infection while he was in Bangkok since the virus are now in an uproar.

To address your question whether he need to be quarantine or not, we will need to assess the risk first. He can answer a simple quiz to assess the risk (Assess Your Risk Here). After he is done, he would be categorized into a risk group and according to that, he would be advised on next appropriate step whether he is safe, need to be self-quarantine or immediately have to come to the hospital.

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

Thank you.
