Doctor, u know the recent outbreak of coronavirus right? May I know what is the signs & symptoms of the person who got infected by it? Is it true that we will manifest symptoms like shaking of body like a zombie? I saw a video at twitter & the patient who got infected by the disease shaking like crazy. Is it true doctor?

Thank you for your questions. The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (KKM COVID-19) for further information regarding coronavirus or for a private consultation with our doctors.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. Recently, we heard about the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China and it is actually a global health concern. Patients who are infected with the coronavirus may manifest symptoms like:

  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Body ache
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Runny nose

However, the symptoms alone are not sufficient for the patient to be diagnosed or to be confirmed to be infected with Coronavirus because they need to have a serology test to confirm the disease.

It could take up to 14 days before the first symptom to appear & you should report to the nearest healthcare provider if you experienced any of the symptoms. You are also encouraged to avoid crowded place and you are recommended to take leave from school or work if you experienced any of the symptoms.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor. You may also click on this link (KKM COVID-19) to speak with our doctors online. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
