Hi and thank you for your question.

We truly understand your concern regarding the potential COVID-19 symptoms that you may be experiencing. We will indeed try to help you.

For your information a,ccording to the WHO, common symptoms for COVID-19 infection are as follows:

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

However, symptoms alone are not enough to determine whether a person is infected with COVID-19 or other similar infections such as the common flu. Therefore, further evaluation must be done prior to any conclusion.

Furthermore, I would also 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.

You are also encouraged to talk to our doctor online so that we can help you further.

We hope you will be satisfied with our answer.
