COVID-19 patient can stay positive for months without symptoms

Patients can stay COVID-19 positive for two months or more based on our experience in this country and even not show any symptoms, said Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar when asked on the recent cases involving three foreign workers believed to have been infected from March this year. “The barber where the foreign worker who tested positive visited has tested negative. Contact tracing of the barber’s contacts also showed negative results. The public who think they have visited the barber can go to the Belait hospital for swab testing,” the minister told the daily press conference yesterday. More details in Weekend’s Borneo Bulletin
