My mother its 83 years old. RN: 06528090. Her name Liew Keok Gin. She has appointment for blood test end of April. She need blood transfusion regularly. Please advise to postpone.
Thank your for your question. Your mother has to perform the blood test to check her blood parameters. It can be fatal to her if she does not get the medical attention she needs due to lack of blood parameters given she is on blood transfusion. I understand you are worried regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and hospitals seems like a horrible place to go now. The risk of getting the infection can be limited if your mom takes necessary precautions. These are the guidelines from the Centre of Disease Control (CDC):
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.
