The Covid-19 situation is getting more and more out of hand day by day, and medical personnel could sure use some help. If you are a doctor or a healthcare professional (HCP), you too, can help contribute toward managing the Covid-19 situation that is a pandemic now. Doc2Us, Malaysia’s leading telemedicine service Doc2Us is calling doctors and healthcare professionals (HCPs) available to join the Doc2Us COVID-19 Task Force. A voluntary telemedicine service, the task force helps the public gain adequate information about Covid-19, and reduces patient-medical healthcare specialist contact.
Manned by volunteering doctors and healthcare providers, the Task Force is an effort aimed to reduce the burden of the public healthcare system within the Ministry of Health in combating this infectious spread. The service would allow the general public to seek medical enquiries or ask general questions related to Covid-19 for free.
Dr Raymond Choy, Chief Executive Officer of Doc2Us said, “There are currently many messages going around chat platforms and groups about alleged tips and old wives’ tales to prevent or cure a Covid-19 infection which are untrue. Yet many people believe these messages are harmful to public health as they are not sanctioned by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) Malaysia.”
Task Force Tips
The Task Force will only provide general enquiry about the spread of Covid-19, the symptoms, as well as proper hygiene, quarantine or social distancing steps that we must take at this time. The volunteer medical health specialist will always advise users that claim or show symptoms similar to a Covid-19 infection to a public healthcare channel, in which MOH will take appropriate measures to screen them. As of 19th March 2020, the total number of those tested positive for Covid-19 has escalated to 900 cases and Malaysia is now resorting to taking stricter measures to contain the virus.
Volunteer & Help!
“We from Doc2Us would like to help ease public concern and offer easy access to information from verified experts and specialists at the safety of their own home. This is an opportunity for doctors and HCPs to volunteer their time and expertise without putting them at risk. We believe that the time and expertise of our volunteers from the Task Force will help contribute positively in the midst of this public health crisis. We also want to take the opportunity to urge people who exhibit symptoms resembling a Covid-19 infection to reach out to MOH for screening and the next necessary steps,” added Choy.
