1. Do people returned from the following countries need to be put on 14-day home surveillance -
Thank you for your questions. For the first question, all those returning from these listed countries are required to have a 14-days home surveillance.
For your second question, A is a close contact of someone with confirmed COVID-19. According to MOH guidelines, for a patient under investigation that does not fulfill admission criteria like being asymptomatic and no travel history to high risk countries:
The others in contact with A does not need home surveillance yet as A is not a confirmed case, nor is she having any symptoms. However, everyone is still encouraged to take preventive measures like practicing good hand hygiene and wearing face mask.
I hope I have answered your question. Thank you for your enquiry.
