Singapore — Mediacorp actors Marcus Chin and Mark Lee had to begin the Chinese New Year celebrations in isolation after testing positive for Covid-19.

The Best Bet actor, Chin, tested positive for Covid-19 on Jan 29, showing symptoms of mild fever, sore throat and cough.

He immediately isolated himself, hoping he would recover before a performance on Feb 3 on the third day of CNY.

Chinese newspaper Shin Min Daily News reported that Chin had dabao (take away food) for his reunion dinner.

Chin added he was fortunate he didn’t experience severe symptoms nor lose his sense of smell.

Shin Min Daily News reported that Lee, who plays Yang Bao Huang in Money No Enough II, isolated himself in a room away from family upon learning he was Covid-19 positive.

He also sanitised the area frequently, while his children only attended school after testing negative for the virus using an antigen rapid test (ART).

Lee said that he missed their family reunion meal, joking that he ate his meal of plain porridge and eggs with preserved radish by himself while “facing the mirror”.

He recovered a few days later and tested negative for Covid-19 on Feb 5. Lee noted that his isolation period was not difficult, similar to when he was quarantined after flying to Taiwan.

He went to work on Jan 21 after taking some medication, noting he felt fine except for a sore throat.

He tested positive for Covid-19.

Low, 69, recovered just in time for CNY and was in the clear for the virus on Jan 27.

Low, who already received his booster jab, highlighted that his symptoms were mild compared to friends a year or two older than him but did not get their booster dose before getting infected with the virus. /TISG
