Hi, if we had close contact with covid-19 patient, and decided to do swab test the next day after got closed contact with the person… the swab test will be accurate or not?
Thank you for your question.
We understand your worries especially towards a potential close contact and possible false negative result of COVID-19 screening test.
Yes, the swab test is accurate. please follow the instructions and guidelines provided by our government. I would like to encourage you to answer this quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate your concurrent health status.
You may also click on this link to directly request a COVID-19 screening test if ever considered on having another test done. Or contact the Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC). Other than that, do practice good hand hygiene, social/physical distancing and wear your face mask in public.
For more information on your health condition, or for more accurate treatment to be implemented, a more detailed test should be done beforehand. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to talk online with our certified doctors. Thank you
