Thank you for your question. Based on your symptoms, you are encouraged to answer the 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. You should have the test if you are of high risk. Government hospitals will conduct the test for free only for those of high risk.

Otherwise fever and breathing problems can be caused by other illnesses such as:

However, you can always obtain the test to be sure if you can afford it. We do provide home testing services, accessible through this link: COVID-19 Screening At Home. Other private hospitals do provide COVID-19 testing too.

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.

After 5.00 pm till 12.00 am, please direct your enquiries to our DoctorOnCall website at this link DoctorOnCall Tanya.
