We understand your worries especially with the development of symptoms indicative but not exclusive of COVID-19.

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

  • Fever (morea than 37.5 degrees celcius)
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Aches and pains
  • Sorethroat
  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath

Fever and Cough can be due to other health conditions apart from COVID such as:

  • dehydration
  • common cold
  • influenza infection
  • pharyngitis
  • tonsillitis
  • dengue fever

The needs of screening test depends on your risk profile. To assess your risk, 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.

Even if your risk is low, as you are suffering from haemostasis, please visit the nearest clinic.

Haemostasis is not a typical symptom of CoViD-19. Regardless, you should get treated.

You can isolate yourself from your parents if your risk is high and you need to visit screening hospital.

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.
