What should I do if I have had close contact with an infected person awaiting test results or become infected in 2019-nCoV?

Monitor your health starting from the day of first close contact with the sick person, continuously for 14 days from the last close contact. Monitor for the following signs and symptoms:

  • Fever. Temperature measurements twice a day.
  • cough.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • Other symptoms that may be encountered are chills, body aches, sore throat, headache, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, and runny nose.

If you have a fever or any of the above symptoms, call your medical facility immediately.

Before visiting a doctor, it is necessary to tell the medical staff that you have had close contact with a suspect who is awaiting test results or is infected in 2019-nCoV. This will help healthcare facilities prepare in advance to avoid infecting others.

If you do not have any of the above symptoms, you can continue your daily activities, such as going to work, school, or other public areas.
