hi, I would like to seek an advise .
I am 21 years old, yesterday I went to my friend place and pass him something urgent ( I with my mask on but he did not), he was fooling around and fake coughing beside me (without mask) we had no physical contact , I felt angry and uncomfortable so that I left immediately (Not more than 15 minutes), I washed and sanitised my hand and my body before I get into my car. Then at the night he called me and told me that one of his friends had diagnosed covid-19 and he met hime the day before.
I have no symptoms and no feelings unwell.
do I need to take a covid test ?
which Lapisan or category I’m in ?
Good evening and hi, thank you for reaching out to us.
We understand your concern based on your statement. According to the Ministry of Health, close contact refers to either:
In this case, you are not considered as a close contact since you are not in a direct contact with the patient. However, more information are needed before anyone can stratify and put you under certain categories.
Additonally, WHO listed common symptoms for COVID-19 infection as follows:
Other than that, COVID-19 screening is usually subjected to patients that have experienced an ongoing fever. Although the criteria may change according to the situation, it is best that you seek immediate help from the nearby clinic or hospital as soon as possible. For the time being, we strongly advise you to monitor your health and symptoms. If you developed a fever or any symptoms mentioned above, please seek medical attention immediately.
We would also encourage you to answer this quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate their health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories. Further instructions will be given at the end of the quiz. Please act accordingly.
Occasionally you might be strongly advised to do a COVID-19 screening and meanwhile to maintain physical and social distance between close friends and family members. You may also click on this link to directly request a COVID-19 screening test.
But if you want to seek a second opinion, you may try to contact the Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC). Other than that, do practice good hand hygiene and normalize wearing face mask in public.
