KKM: A Guideline On Self Quarantine Duration If Tested Positive Covid-19

How are you doing friends? Truth is always harder to swallow but it will save lives. As we speak, hospitals around the nation can no longer support the number of positive Covid-19 patients in Malaysia. So we have to be responsible towards ourselves and the people around us. If you are tested positive and you are ordered to self-quarantine, here’s a little guideline on how long you should do it.

Self-quarantine Duration For Positive Covid-19 Cases

Recently, KKM shared on their social media a guideline for people who were tested positive Covid-19 and ordered to perform self-quarantine at home. They shared 3 situations altogether and the duration differs from one another.
