Should I get tested?

Answered by: Dr Sri Viknarajan

Hi, I am a 35 y/o male, living a few km from Seri Petaling mosque but no overseas travel and no contact with covid positive patient.
Since last wednesday, I had been having bouts of elevated body temperature up to 37.5C, especially in late afternoon to night. It usually goes away by late night. Since yesterday, this has stopped. I dont have sore throat/ cough, except when need to remove small amount of phlegm. Today, I felt light headed for a while (now it has gone away). Should I get tested for Covid?

Thank you for your question. I understand that you are worry about your risk of being infected with COVID19. Since you have developed recurrent fever and recent onset headache, I would encourage you to answer this quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate you health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories. Further instructions will be given at the end of the quiz. Please act accordingly.

Besides COVID-19 infection, your symptoms can be caused by other health problems such as:

  • Other bacterial or viral infection
  • Tonsilits
  • Pneumonia
  • Meningitis
  • Encephalitis

We also provide home testing services, accessible through this link: COVID-19 Screening At Home.

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/
