KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 23 — Individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 must update the symptoms they are experiencing on the MySejahtera app every day so that their health condition can be monitored throughout their quarantine period.
Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin in a TikTok video shared on Twitter also advised the COVID-19 positive individuals to contact or go directly to the nearest health facility if the symptoms turned severe.
“Monitor the symptoms and your health condition if you have breathing difficulty, long-lasting fever, chest pain and loss of appetite,” he said.
Khairy said those with the symptoms should immediately quarantine themselves and do the COVID-19 self-test.
“If tested positive, report the result of the test on MySejahtera. During quarantine, you will receive notifications of Things To Do. This is a health assessment tool where you can update your symptoms,” he said.
Khairy also advised the public to always practise TRIIS – Test, Report, Isolate, Inform, Seek and wear the face mask.
