Hi I have the above symptom and is worried about Covid 19. What is the procedure to get tested?
Thank you for your enquiry. As COVID-19 cases are on the rise, 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. Please follow the instructions at the end of the quiz. The test to detect the COVID-19 virus are reserved for those of high risk. We also provide home testing services, accessible through this link: COVID-19 Screening At Home.
If you need to attend events with many participants, you are encouraged to follow the guidelines from the Centre of Disease Control (CDC):
Aside from Covid-19 infection, the symptoms that you are having can also be due to other diseases. For instance:
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/.
