Diarrhoea + coughing and newly dev sore throat, suspecting covid-19, recently returned from melaka tourist area

Answered by: Dr Sashini Seeni

Returned from melaka last Sunday 1/3/2020), started to develop symptoms of food poisoning on 4/3/2020 (Wednesday) - mainly vomiting, with headache, nausea and fever.

Then since 5-7/3/2020 (Thursday to today, Saturday), having diarrhoea (stool shape varies from form then to watery/loose stools, already 3 times today, all loose stools).

Fever has stopped since 6/3/2020 Friday. But today started to develop sore throat and back with headache. Continously with coughing and runny nose.

Concern that would it be covid-19 symptoms, as symptoms are quite similar except no breathing difficulties. Had visited tourist parts of melaka.

I understand you are currently having sore throat, headache, coughing and runny nose which leads you to suspecting yourself of having COVID-19. Based on your symptoms, 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.

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

  • Other bacterial or viral infection like the common cold
  • Asthma
  • Allergic Rhinitis
  • Pneumonia

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/.

Thank you for your enquiry! Hope you get well soon.
