As China is slowly recovering from the damage Covid-19 has left on the country, the rest of the world remains in a frenzy over increasing cases, clusters and deaths.
Here in Singapore, there are over 300 cases and two deaths, the latter which were announced earlier today (March 21) at 11.30am. While countries like Malaysia and New Zealand have ordered complete lockdowns, Singapore hasn’t taken such drastic measures; instead, the Ministry of Health has announced stricter safe distancing measures such as a one-metre separation between patrons at restaurants and cinemas.

And if you’re feeling under the weather, there’s no need to panic. Here’s what you need to know about Covid-19’s symptoms so you can make an informed decision before seeking medical help.
