Nestle Malaysia COVID-19 Exposure : Should You Be Concerned?

Nestle Malaysia appears to have nipped this in the bud by proactively testing all of their employees, catching that single case.

They did not mention how many close contacts were identified, but it looks like they have all been quarantined and will be tested.

Depending on whether they test positive or negative, additional contact tracing may be carried out.

There is NO NEED to worry about getting infected through purchase of Nestle products. Fomite exposure has not been proven to be cause COVID-19 infections.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is also easily destroyed by soap, so if you are worried, just wipe down your parcels with soap and water.

But most important of all – always wash your hands with soap, or use a hand sanitiser.
