New COVID-19 Symptom Checker

25 March 2020

COVID-19 Symptom CheckerHealthdirect Australia have asked the National Allergy Strategy to share the COVID‑19 Symptom Checker they have developed for people that are unwell and think they may have COVID‑19. 

As medical staff, testing clinics and the National Coronavirus Helpline are overwhelmed with enquiries, the symptom checker can help alleviate pressure. 

The COVID‑19 Symptom Checker provides people with advice on whether medical help is required and what they should do next, such as calling ahead before a visit to a GP or emergency department. 

Access to the COVID‑19 Symptom Checker is available from the National Allergy Strategy website: www.nationalallergystrategy.org.au

 

 

National Allergy Strategy Rationale

Allergic diseases have become an increasingly important chronic disease and public health issue in Australia and other developed countries over the last two decades, contributing to increased demand for medical services, significant economic cost of care and reduced quality of life of people with allergic diseases and their carers.
