Greetings! Thank you for the question. For your information, besides COVID-19 infection, symptoms of cough can be caused by other health problems such as:
As long as you don’t have any close contact with someone who is a CONFIRMED case of COVID-19 or history of travelling to countries that are affected, you should be fine and in the meantime you are advised to quarantine yourself for at least 14 days if you experiencing any of the symptoms. After that period, if the symptoms persist, you should seek medical attention.
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.
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 DoctorOnCall Tanya.
