I am a college student around KL Sentral, and have been travelling to and from KL Sentral for transportation purposes. I’ve also pass through KL Sentral after the first case announced there. But I’ve been staying at home for more than 14 days, yet no symptoms showed. Will I be at risk of covid-19?

Hi!

Thank you for your question. I understand that you are worried about the risk of COVID-19 infection.
The incubation period for COVID-19 is 14 to 26 days. As you do not have any symptom during these period, the likelihood is low.

Nevertheless, In order to identify your level of risk profile, You are encouraged to answer the quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate your health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories.

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/.
