Answered by: Dr Nur Syuhada binti Zulkifli

I am a man, 32 years old. I can feel itchiness at my throat since 2-3 days ago and i feel a bit difficult to breath since yesterday.

No direct contact with positive covid but my closed colleague did. I believe he is (-) since he didnt update us on his result.

My questions are
a. how shortness of breath feels?
b. Should i visit a near by clinic for further consultation?

thank you, Doc.

We understand your worries especially with the development of symptoms indicative but not exclusive of COVID-19.

Shortness of breath is a feeling that every breath you take is not enough thus you need to make extra effort to breath in and breathing more faster to compensate that.

As mention before, symptoms of COVID-19 is not exclusive. There is so much more disease that can manifest the similar symtoms. So, before you visit the the doctor, you’re 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 of 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/.
