Hi.

Thank you for your question.

I understand your worry hence you should monitor closely your health for any signs of symptoms such as fever, coughing, shortness of breath and others up to 14 days. If you have any of the symptoms, please report to your healthcare provider immediately.

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.

The decision of whether a person needs to be checked is depending on the doctor’s evaluation of the patient’s history and risks. If a person develops symptoms such as fever and respiratory symptoms, he/she will be further evaluated for diagnostic testing.

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 https://www.doctoroncall.com.my/tanya/.
