  • DO NOT crumple polymer banknotes.
  • DO NOT staple, use sharp instruments on, or pin polymer banknotes.

  • Genuine and not counterfeit
  • Free from holes, tears, tape or missing portion
  • Has uniform brightness and free from excessive soiling
  • Free from ink-wear, particularly on the portrait of SPB Yang di-Pertuan Agong

Please See A Doctor If There Are Symptoms, This Doctor Has A Story To Tell

Published

on

The number of positive cases for COVID-19 has been increasing by days even after a year of battling it here in Malaysia. Other than that, the number of death caused by COVID-19 has also been shockingly increasing and this has made everyone worried about this.

Despite all that, there are also people who still think that COVID-19 is just a conspiracy and never exists. Unfortunately, people who dare to say that got infected with this dangerous virus. The saddest part would be, their condition is getting worse day by day and they really regret what they have said.

According to a recent Facebook post by a doctor, she told the story of a patient who was stubborn and refused to admit that she had been infected with the Covid-19 virus. The doctor named Dr. Malar Santhi Santherasegapan has posted on her Facebook social media post to share the story of a female patient who came to the clinic for treatment because she felt a change in her body after three days.

According to the post:

“Unwell but no fever, cough, or flu. No loss of sense of smell. So what’s sickness? Just feeling uncomfortable, no appetite and fatigue”, said the patient.

“The third day she was feeling unwell, she went to the GP clinic, and was examined by a doctor who recommended her to take a Covid test. She did not want to because her husband does not believe in Covid. The doctor deliberately wants to make a profit. That’s why they asked for a test”, said her husband. Dr. Malar wrote that the patient did not have close contact so she could not be forced to do a swab test, so she had to be released with medication only.

It is understood that on the sixth day, the patient was still unwell, but the story is the same. The patient did not have a fever, and there are no other symptoms of Covid-19. This time around after examination, the doctor heard an unpleasant sound in the lungs. They conducted a chest x-ray and the doctor saw a ‘Pneumonia’-like covid infection. Once again, they advised and persuaded the patient to do a swab test. Still, the patient rejected.

“Her husband said for sure that is not COVID-19 because Covid is a conspiracy”, shared Dr. Malar. Due to the patient’s stubbornness to take the swab test, her health condition worsened upon entering the ninth day. As her condition continued to worsen, the patient finally went to the hospital.

“Her breath seemed a little fast; she looked tired and breathless. The husband looked a little worried—oxygen in 94% -95%. Conducted x-ray again. That’s it. Full-blown Covid-19 Pneumonia, it’s nothing else!”. This time, she just agreed to take a swab test. But her husband had a hard time saying, “You just made us take the swab test because you want to charge us expensively right?”

But the result of the RT PCR COVID-19 test swab is positive! The doctor was not surprised at all. According to Dr. Malar, what was surprising is the honest confession made by the patient as soon as their result was confirmed positive. They both admitted that they had a fever for 10 days, diarrhea 10-15 times a day because they are taking more vitamin C than they needed, which is why the kidney blood tests showed all the high numbers.

After being referred to the Covid hospital in the state, this patient is still dying and fighting for her life. Her husband is also positive and was given respiratory assistance. Both are in a coma. The doctor then posed a rhetorical question.

“Is this COVID-19 a hoax?”. She wrote again.

At the end of her posting, the doctor advised. ” Please go see a doctor and follow the doctor’s advice if you have symptoms, whether there is a close contact COVID or not. Now there are so many symptoms that have just been detected as positive COVID. Not mcm before this where most patients are positive COVID, but not symptomatic”.
