A member of our Quran class is now in SBH. Do other members have to be screened although we don’t show any symptoms. We last met him on 11/3
Thank you for your questions.
First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding this issue of coronavirus since we’re in the midst of outbreak.
Screening should be done if you’re the close contact of individual with positive result. By definition through the context of coronavirus infection, close contact is someone who has been face to face for at least 15 minutes, or been in the same closed space for at least 2 hours.
If you are a close contact, you should present yourself to Designated Hospital for COVID-19 for further evaluation and investigation even if you shows no symptoms.
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/.
Taking this opportunity, I would like to remind you to stay put at home as ordered by the authorities and only go out when necessary. With everyone’s cooperation, I hope we can conquer this outbreak before it get any worse. Thank you.
