Good morning,here I have some questions about covid 19. I had been coughing since December last year bwhich sometimes not coughing and sometimes couhing due to allergic rhinitis. And during theses few days, I am coughing and feeling a bit tekak kering and sedikit panas. I never go to any places with high infection but I am currently working in pharmacy shop and had contacted with a lot of customers. Is it the symptoms for covid 19??

Good day to you. Thank you for your question.

We understand your worries especially you have been contact with a lot of customers. For you information, WHO listed common symptoms for COVID-19 infection as follows:

However, as you may already aware, these symptoms are not specific to COVID-19 but can be presented in other conditons such as in common flu and other infections by bacteria or other viruses.

Therefore, 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 and further actions suggested will be provided according to the classification.

You are advised to monitor your symptoms and limit contact with other person. Practice hand washing and hand hygine and well as wear protective mask when you interact with other people or customers.
