Managing our health over the last two years, has been challenging. The slightest hint of a headache or a sore throat, has been cause for concern for many of us. So, when should we treat it as just an ordinary sniffle or a cough? And when should we get tested for Covid-19? eNCA speaks to SA Medical Association's Mvuyisi Mzukwa for more. Courtesy #DStv403
JOHANNESBURG - Get tested for COVID-19, even if you have mild flu-like symptoms.
That's the advice from the South African Medical Association.
The organisation said there's a very thin line between the flu and the Omicron variant.
"It's important to test no matter how mild symptoms look like," SA Medical Association's Mvuyisi Mzukwa said.
"You need to make sure it's not COVID-19.
"Don't treat lightly whatever symptoms you have until you test, that's my advice."
