Thank you for your question.

We understand your worries especially with the close contact with positive symptoms of COVID-19

For you information, WHO listed common symptoms for COVID-19 infection as follows:

  • Fever (more than 37.5 degrees celcius)
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Aches and pains
  • Sore throat
  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath

I would encourage you to answer this quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate your health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories. Further instructions will be given at the end of the quiz. Please act accordingly.

You may also directly visit the hospitals in this list for a COVID-19 screening test. (Designated Hospital for COVID-19). Other than that, do practice good hand hygiene and wear your face mask in public.

You may consult a MOH doctor by clicking Ask Doctor at the Ministry of Health website (COVID-19 Portal) to ask any health issues related to COVID-19 starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.

Boost your immune system with a balanced diet and good nutrition.
