Reminder to seek medical attention for any ARI symptom
Symptoms such as cough, fever, runny nose and body aches are typical of Covid-19 infection.
This is a reminder that we should seek medical attention as soon as we have such symptoms, or at least stay home as much as possible.
The number of community cases may be dwindling recently, but as we’ve seen, there can always be a resurgence.
We can do our part by staying home during this period and only go out for essential activities.
