Certainly not. The typical symptoms of a COVID-19 infection are fever dry cough and runny nose. Anosmia has also been described as a symptom in a significant percentage of patients. However, many people with COVID-19 infections have also turned out to be asymptomatic, with little or no symptoms. Hence in short, you may not have a fever or flu symptoms to have a COVID-19 infection.
Dear Reader,There is no evidence to suggest that going to a sauna frequently canprevent COVID-19. Unless you have a sauna built at home and you are stayingat home at all times. It is a good leisurely activity but not necessarily ameans to prevent disease.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of the services in Singapore are stressed and manpower is short. It's a strain to the healthcare system and IMH is our largest psychiatry hospital in Singapore. We do have some manpower that is deployed elsewhere, but we still have general practitioners in polyclinics or in private practice who can refer them to IMH if necessary. So that means that they are always open for the very severe cases, whereas, for the milder cases, from what I understand, there will be a phone call made to existing patients.
