How Covid-19 Patients Can Navigate Home Isolation

We’ve seen an increasing surge in COVID-19 cases and our healthcare system faces unprecedented strains. With hospital beds, ICUs, and quarantine centers filling up fast, and more frequent delays in transporting COVID-19 patients to the hospital, the Health Ministry has started instructing low risk patients to isolate at home. We’ll be speaking to a COVID patient who self isolated to understand her experience, and then with Dr. Helmy Haja Mydin, Consultant Respiratory Physician, on how patients isolating at home can best navigate this new health measure.
