Dealing with COVID-19

What do I do if I have flu-like symptoms / fever?

 

– Stay home and mind yourself
– Avoid other people
– Drink lots of water
– Take pain killers / fever medication (ibuprofen, aspirin, paracetamol)

What if I think this might be COVID-19?

– Do not go to the GP or Emergency Room
– Phone your GP (Click here if you don’t have a GP yet)
– Phone HSE live: 1850 24 1850 they will give advice or send someone to your home to test you
– If HSE live do not answer, or you have very bad symptoms, call 112 or 999, they’ll ask “which service…?”, say “ambulance”, then talk to the ambulance person and explain the situation.

Would the state medical system help me? (HSE)

– Yes, all residents are entitled to medical treatment (Check out Citizens Information for more info.)
– You can never be refused necessary treatment
– For non-EU students the charges can be high but it should be covered by your insurance
– They do not ask about your visa status but to calculate costs they might want to check you are a resident

What if I need a doctor for some other reason (not COVID-19) ?

– GPs are the best.

What if it’s the middle of the night and I need a doctor for some other reason (not COVID-19)?

– You can see a doctor out of hours. Find the local service for your area on this page  (This type of doctor’s visit generally costs 50 to 70 Euro. If the doctor thinks you need to go to the hospital he will give you a “referral”.)

Should I go to the Emergency Department (ED)?

– Do not go to the Emergency department right now if you have fever and cough or if you think you have COVID-19.
– Emergencies are generally things like a broken leg or a burst appendix. Here’s a list of situations when we should go to the emergency department.

Be cautious not anxious!
