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:
As listed above, the symptoms are very vague and mimic other disease as well. Hence, the needs of screening test depends on your risk profile. To assess your risk, 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 visit any doctor first to get evaluated because it is not necessary to be COVID-19. There’s other problem that can contribute to your symptoms. Such as:
Bacterial or virus infection
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.
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you to stay put at home as ordered by the authorities. With everyone’s cooperation, I hope we can conquer this outbreak before it get any worse. Thank you.
