COVID-19 | Johor DAP state committee member Dr Boo Cheng Hau revealed he has tested positive for Covid-19 last week but is making a good recovery.
He said he is at higher risk of catching Covid-19 because he is a healthcare worker and has been quarantined since he has been diagnosed with the disease.
“My conditions have been stable and improving. I hope to get out of quarantine soon.
“Thanks for all the support and concerns given by family members, colleagues and friends. Do stay safe and take all precautions until there is a vaccine available here,” he wrote on Facebook today.
Boo was formerly the Skudai assemblyperson from 2008 until 2018 and is a doctor by profession.
According to current Health Ministry guidelines, Covid-19 patients who show symptoms can be discharged 10 days after their symptoms first appeared, provided that the symptoms have been resolved for at least 24 hours.
For those who did not develop symptoms, they may be discharged 10 days after their first positive Covid-19 test result instead.
An exception is made for immunocompromised patients, whose discharge would be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
