Hello there!

I understand about your concern regarding your daughter’s risk of COVID 19 infection. Based on her symptoms such as fever and sore throat she is encouraged to answer the quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate her health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories.

Besides COVID-19 infection, these symptoms can be caused by other health problems such as:

  • Other bacterial or viral infection

  • Asthma

  • Allergic Rhinitis

  • Pneumonia

  • Tonsillitis

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
