Thank you for your question! I understand that you are worried about having the COVID-19 infection due to your symptoms of runny nose, sore throat and feeling cold. 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. Besides, you will be given an instruction on what to do next. Please act accordingly.

Besides COVID-19 infection, symptoms of sore throat, runny nose and feeling cold can be caused by other health problems such as:

  • Other bacterial or viral infection like the common cold
  • Allergic Rhinitis
  • Asthma
  • Pneumonia

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/.

Thank you fro your enquiry. I hope my answer would help you alleviate your worries. Get well soon!
