I’m a SLE patient. Came direct contact with two covid positive patients. I’ve been tested negative. Having mild symptoms like headache and fatigue. Do I need to do any other test?
Thank you for your question. I understand your worries regarding your condition.
Th symptoms that you are having right now could be a COVID19 symptoms, but it is very common for us to have headache or fatigue sometimes and it could be caused by many other things. I encourage you to quarantine yourself for 14 days and do the second swab later on. In the meantime, see if there is any other new symptom in you.
For you information, WHO listed common symptoms for COVID-19 infection as follows:
However, it is difficult to distinguish coronavirus infection from other health problems that manifest almost similar symptoms. Thus, 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 with appropriate steps that should be taken. This initiative is to reduce huge crowd coming to the hospital for screening in fear of coronavirus infection as well as to avoid you going out from the house unnecessarily.
