The chances are less but there can still be a slight possibility

You must self isolate for a minimum of two more weeks to be absolutely sure you haven,t caught the virus

 

Please do let me know if you have any other question

could i have passed it on to others?

There is a possibility since asymptomatic carrier of infection do occur and you can be one of those

So please stay at home in isolation for another couple of weeks

Please do let me know if you have any other question

 

If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating
