KUALA LUMPUR: The Health Ministry does not plan to review the five-day Covid-19 mandatory quarantine period yet.
Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said it would only do so at the end of the year when the enforcement of Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 (Act 342) for Covid-19 ends.
"I have yet to receive (any) complaints from employers on cases of their staff misusing the Covid-19 mandatory quarantine (to take time off work).
"It could be an isolated case. As we transition into pandemic, we continue to work together in preventing Covid-19 spread, based on integrity of individuals," he told reporters after attending the first Asia Dermatology & Aesthetic Medicine Summit (ADAMS) 2022, here today.
