Thank you for your question. I understand your concern given the current situation out country is dealing with regarding COVID-19. From your explanation, it is difficult to determine if this is really a case of COVID-19. You may notice the symptoms of COVID-19 are non-specific and it occurs it most respiratory diseases. Hence, 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. The COVID-19 test will only be done for those of high risk.

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

  • Asthma
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary DIsorder (COPD)
  • Anemia
  • Anxiety disorder

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/.
