The respiratory tract virus that has infected thousands across the globe and taken the lives of many, is no different than the common cold when it comes to symptoms. In Qatar, 634 people have fallen victim, 48 of which have recovered. The cases are expected to be controlled with the lockdown implemented, however, nothing can be said as of yet. You can be tested for the coronavirus at government clinics and hospitals only if you have the following symptoms; cough, fever, tiredness and difficulty breathing and it usually takes 48-72 hours for the laboratory to get the results back to you.
In these chaotic times of need, Meddy has launched the Covid-19 Symptom Checker, a close to accurate free online symptom evaluator that anyone can take, anywhere at any time. The questions take 2 minutes to answer and the results are displayed on the screen as soon as the individual finishes. The options selected generate one of the following three possibilities:
1. Based on your responses, you seem to be at LOW RISK for COVID-19.
If you still have some concerns, our doctors are available for any additional questions you may have.
2. Based on your responses, you would benefit from a consultation with one of our doctors to discuss your symptoms and assess your risks for COVID-19
3. Based on your responses, we recommend staying home and calling the MOPH Qatar COVID-19 hotline on 16000
The first two options will allow the user to get a free call back from a top healthcare specialist. The user can voice out any concerns he or she might have. The third option entails a high probability of the test-taker being infected and he or she will get the option to call 16000 without being charged.
The results are based on the answers picked but for a final diagnosis, it is vital to see a doctor.
