Overview: The Ministry of Health (MOH) launched a COVID-19 self-assessment tool on the “Mawid” app.

This is a six question questionnaire that aims to help people identify their risk of being COVID-19 positive based on recent travel history and symptoms.

The service can either refer patients to the Sihati app where they can get a virtual consultation from physician, or advise the patient to self quarantine or seek further medical advice through the 937 service.
