Patients aged 3-64 can be quarantined at home, instead of age 1-50 as per previous regulations.

Covid-19 cases who are children or those who are incapable of taking care of themselves must find their own caretakers. Patients whose family members are vulnerable to Covid-19 are encouraged to be quarantined away from home to avoid cross-infection.

The document also introduced a new Covid-19 drug, favipiravir, for home treatment, besides the currently used molnupiravir.

HCMC has recorded over 500,000 Covid-19 cases in the new wave so far, and 19,905 people have died in the city.
