Coronavirus (COVID-19) Online Test

Here is an online self-assessment coronavirus test for those who are worried they may have contracted the virus. By taking this test, you can assess your symptoms, and be guided as to what steps to take next.

Symptoms of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) are very similar to those of other common respiratory diseases such as the common cold. In such a situation, one of the major concerns is whether one should go to medical centres with respiratory symptoms such as cough and runny nose.

In order to answer this question, the Medical Council of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Iranian Red Crescent Society have developed an online test whose algorithm is based on the symptoms of COVID-19 and international research studies.

 

Has Coronavirus infected me? Should I go to the medical centers?

The Coronavirus online test has proved to be a powerful means amid the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic in Iran and has so far been taken by over 7 million people with the COVID-19 symptoms or those who are concerned about getting it.

The goal of Covid-19 online test is to help people know whether they need to go to a medical centre for the COVID-19.

Given the Iranian medical system’s good experience with this online test, the country feels committed to help all the people in other countries of the world who are concerned about the novel coronavirus these days. In an integrated world where all humans live together, the Islamic Republic of Iran, to the best of its ability, wants to make this tool available to all.

Guidelines for Prompt Diagnosis of Coronavirus Infection

The following guidelines can help with prompt diagnosis of potential coronavirus infection.

If you have respiratory symptoms similar to the common cold, you may use this simple guide. The purpose is for us to see a doctor or go to hospital only when need be as there is no particular cure for the common cold and hospitals do nothing special to treat it.
