With the news of Omicron spreading, it’s crucial to be vigilant about our health and safety especially when we’re travelling abroad.

Those who recently flew on AirAsia flight AK5237 from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching on 29 November should immediately get themselves tested for Covid-19.

A netizen Izzati Rosdi shared on Twitter that her friend on the flight tested positive for Covid-19 and urged the other passengers in the same flight to get tested.

She did not reveal her friend’s name to protect their identity.

However, netizens also shared that it might still be too early to get tested. It’s advisable to self isolate for three days and retest after.

The Covid-19 virus takes a few days to incubate within the body, meaning that it’ll take a few days before it shows up during the PCR and RTK Antigen tests.

While we’re allowed to travel if we’re fully vaccinated, it does not mean we’re immune to the different Covid-19 variants.

What helps is still to follow the standard operating procedures, wear the mask when we’re outside, and conduct regular self-tests if we attend group events or when we’re travelling.
