  • Multiple tests have been carried out before they are discharged
  • The tests are varied, collecting samples from mucus or other bodily fluids
  • Discharged patients are advised to stay at home for 14 days because their immunity is weak, not because they carry the virus
  • MOH conducts follow-up checks on discharged patients
