PETALING JAYA: The Health director-general’s office has issued a circular on the management of Covid-19 cases and close contacts during the pandemic for 2021.
The circular is aimed to inform Malaysians on the procedures in handling both asymptomatic and symptomatic Covid-19 cases that occur at home or place of residence.
The National Security Council and Health Ministry disaster management executive committee had, during a special meeting, agreed that positive Covid-19 patients for Category 1 (asymptomatic) and Category 2 (showing mild symptoms) be isolated at home, place of residence, hotels or low-risk quarantine and treatment centres (PKRC) depending on the patients’ situation.
For states with sufficient capacity to manage Covid-19 cases, they can do so according to the Covid-19 Management Guideline in Malaysia No. 5 that can be found at http://covid-19.moh.gov.my/garis-panduan/garis-panduan-kkm.
