Hi, I’ve travelled to Italy and leave on 10/02 to Prague, then transit to Uk and back to malaysia on 18/02. Have got minor winter flu on the first few days when I’m back, but it’s recover now. Is it necessary to get a check up? I have no quarantine at all during this period. Please advice.

I understand that you are worried about the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak due to your recent travel to one of the high risk area such as Italy and UK. Since you have recover from the winter flu and does not suffer any symptoms currently, there is no need for check up. Nevertheless, you are advice to monitor the symptoms of COVID19.
Identify the symptoms for coronavirus like:

  • Fever more than 37.5 degrees celcius.
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath

Thank you for your question.
