Bangladesh COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool

This self-assessment tool can help you to determine whether you may need further assessment or testing for COVID-19. You can complete this assessment for yourself, or on behalf of someone else, if they are unable to.

To protect yourself while out in public, wash your hands frequently and maintain a distance of about 2 meters from others.
