Answered by: Dr Nur Syuhada binti Zulkifli
I am male, 20 years old. I study abroad in London and recently came back home last Saturday on the 21st or March. I had no symptoms prior to coming home, but at home I do have slight allergies with my dog. I live with my parents and grandmother all of which are above 50 years old. My symptoms are swollen eyes, dry cough and sneezing. Please advise if I should get tested to be sure.
We understand your worries especially with the development of symptoms indicative but not exclusive of COVID-19.
For you information, WHO listed common symptoms for COVID-19 infection as follows:
Meanwhile, swollen eyes and sneezing is not part of the symptoms of coronavirus.
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 crowd coming to the hospital for screening in fear of coronavirus infection as well as to avoid you going out from the house unnecessarily.
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/.
