I tested positive for COVID-19 this morning (October 6, 2022).
I did a tele consult and was given a digital medical certificate plus a checklist of meds to purchase online (using the app). The meds were delivered within two hours right to my doorstep. No need to queue anywhere and also minimising exposure to people.
So far the symptoms are mild cough. I’m not sure if the fever I was experiencing on Tuesday night was a precursor to testing positive on Thursday morning. I was at the Singapore General Hospital’s A&E department yesterday to have x-rays taken after I experienced pain in my rib cage. That pain started on Tuesday after I used the seated leg press at the gym. What a week.
The doctor in the tele consult prescribed a standard 5-days of “MC” (medical certificate) which lasts until next Tuesday. Though I’m working from home most of the time, I’ve decided to use it in its entirety.
How I feel? Well, I knew it was going to happen eventually. I’m going to spend the next few days resting and catching up on Netflix, Disney+, HBO Go, Apple TV Plus, Amazon Prime lol – but seriously, rest.
