Greetings! Thank you for your questions.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your father’s symptoms being caused by the COVID-19 infection. Unfortunately, the symptoms are not specific to just COVID-19, but to a list of other respiratory conditions too. Based on his symptoms, he is encouraged to answer the quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate his health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, he will be classified into several categories. According to WHO, the common symptoms of COVID-19 infection are:

  • Fever (more than 37.5 degrees celcius)
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Aches and pains
  • Sorethroat
  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath

If he’s in medium-high risk he’ll required to be quarantine for 14 days and if he’s in high risk group he’ll need to come to the hospital immediately. In order to confirm an individual is positive COVID-19 or not, swab/ PCR test is required.

Boost your immune system with a balanced diet and good nutrition.

You can get your test whenever you want at private clinics or any medical sectors that provided to ensure your condition. You also can do the RT-PCR test conveniently at the comfort of your house with our team by clicking this link .
