Bermuda Hospitals Board [BHB] Emergency Department in partnership with the Ministry of Health, the Chief Medical Officer and the island’s primary care providers, has “created an easy-to-follow one-page self-assessment guide for members of the community who are concerned they may be infected with Covid-19.”
“The checklist/guide assigns a score from 1-3 to each Covid-19 symptom. Mild symptoms have low scores while severe symptoms carry a score of 3. Persons tally their scores to determine if they need to call their physician,” a spokesperson said.
“We developed the Covid-19 self-assessment as tool to better manage the needs of our community,” said Chikezie Dean Okereke, MD, BHB Chief Emergency and Hyperbaric Services.
“Providing the public with a guide that eliminates the guesswork on what to do and when to take action, can be instrumental in saving lives and keeping the public informed.”
