Man failed to report Covid-19 symptoms during SHN
A man who returned from Kazakhstan on 11 Mar was among the 22 imported cases announced on Saturday (27 Mar).
He’d served his SHN until 25 Mar, but on the night of 24 Mar, he developed a cough.
The man had taken 2 tests during his stay — on 11 Mar and the day of 24 Mar, both of which came back negative.
He developed more symptoms after returning home and was subsequently tested for Covid-19 again.
This time, the test returned positive.
It’s a reminder that those on SHN should declare all possible symptoms to avoid spreading Covid-19 to the community.
