Coronavirus Symptoms Checker by Digit Insurance
Amid the global health crisis of the covid-19, we're not only fighting through a pandemic but also, what we could call an infodemic. From daily WhatsApp forwards and social media shared articles to the 24x7 news updates; you’re gone through them all and a sense of anxiety creeps in. That one cough, that one little itch in your throat, and that sudden sneeze can lead to more worries than usual now. However, know that it is completely okay to feel that way. It’s only natural to feel stressed out and anxious with everything that is going on and that’s okay.
One of the things that has stemmed out of this is the constant worrying of our loved ones. From telling our senior parents to be extra cautious to ensuring we are washing our hands at regular intervals and obviously, not touching our faces! (forget that your nose begins to itch just then!) and while it’s important to be cautious, it’s also important to not let this anxiety turn into panic. After all, that could only lead to affecting your mental health negatively and more than ever, it’s not only our physical health but complete health and well-being that is important.
That’s why, we’ve come up with something that could possibly help ease out worries that could stem out from eerily similar symptoms of the flu and the coronavirus. Worried whether that sore throat has anything to with the coronavirus? Worried of your kid’s cough? This symptom checker will help you assess you or your loved one's current symptoms and give you clarity on whether you need to get tested right now, and/or take other safety measures.
