Thank you for your question
I understand that you are having cough. In view of that, I understand your concern regarding the issue of coronavirus since there’s an outbreak of the virus.
From her given situation I would advice you 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 with an advice on the next appropriate steps that you should take.
In the meantime, it is very crucial for you to follow this step from Centre of Disease Control (CDC) to prevent from contracting or spreading the virus:
Aside from COVID-19 infection, these symptoms might be due to other causes. 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/
