Our goal is to enhance the humanitarian contribution to addressing the coronavirus crisis. BookingClinic and Doctors of the World join forces at the #DigitalSolidarityGR initiative and help discharge public hospitals, while the whole process is provided to the citizen free of charge, safely from his screen, without unnecessary transportation and social contact, reducing the risk of transmission.

At the same time, the user receives reliable and trustworthy medical advice from an internationally recognized organization working with the country's authorities to deal with the crisis, which contributes to good citizen psychology and a calm response to the situation. Besides, a distant medical session after a scheduled online appointment, with direct visual contact and personal conversation with a doctor helps build confidence and improve mental health.

Finally, if the patient needs to be redirected to a referral center, the doctor is responsible for arranging their appointment, facilitating them at this critical and difficult situation.

What do I need to know about COVID-19?

  • What is coronavirus, COVID-19?

    Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are found in both animals and humans. Some infect humans and are known to cause diseases ranging from a simple cold to more serious illnesses. The new coronavirus and its disease (COVID-19) is a new coronavirus strain that was first found in Wuhan, China in December 2019.

  • What are the symptoms and how dangerous is coronavirus?

    For most people, the coronavirus disease is mild and similar to a simple cold (runny nose, fever, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, fatigue).

    It may be more serious for people in high risk groups (the elderly, people with weak immune systems, people with chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, lung disease, liver disease, etc.) and can lead to pneumonia and serious breathing difficulties.

    Less often the disease can lead to death.

  • How does one get the virus?

    A healthy person can get the virus from an infected person. The virus spreads by direct contact with the mouth or nose containing the virus.

    These droplets can enter another person's eyes, nose or mouth when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Still, they can be transmitted when he coughs or sneezes in his hands and touches another person or a surface which is then touched by another person. It is not yet known how long the virus lasts on surfaces, but an alcohol-based hand sanitizer can kill it.

    The new coronavirus is usually transmitted through close contact with an infected person. "Close contact" means touching a person, touching objects that have been used by them or spending a lot of time together, less than one meter away.

  • What can I do to protect myself and my family?

    Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. If soap is not available, alcohol-based gel can be used.

    When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth or nose with your bent elbow or a tissue. Try not to sneeze and cough in your hands because then you will spread the virus with your own hands. Pour the tissue in a container. If you cough or sneeze in your hand, do not touch anything and immediately wash your hands with soap and water.

    Avoid close contact with anyone who is ill, coughs or sneezes and keep at least one-meter distance.

    Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. You touch so many things with your that might have been infected by the virus.

    Don’t go to a doctor's office or hospital if you have mild symptoms (cough, runny nose, fever, phlegm).

  • Do I need a mask to protect myself from coronavirus?

    No, the best you can do to protect yourself is to wash your hands well and often.

    If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person who might have coronavirus.

    If you sneeze or cough, you must wear a mask to prevent the virus from spreading to other people or surfaces.

  • Can I get a coronavirus if I talk to someone or sit next to them?

    It is very rare to get the virus while talking to people, walking the streets or going for shopping in the market or another crowded place. A person generally does not transmit the virus if he/she is simply nearby.

  • Are there any specific drugs to prevent or treat the new coronavirus?

    The disease can be treated, and many people have already recovered from it. Although there is no specific drug, patients should be taken care of to relieve and treat the symptoms. Those with a serious illness should be hospitalized.

  • What should I do if I come in contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus?

    If you have been in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus you should stay home for 14 days from the last contact and monitor your health. If you have a fever, cough, difficulty in breathing, you should contact a doctor immediately.

  • Should we avoid people from countries with high rates of infection?

    We must take the same protective measures as any person (regardless of nationality, origin, etc.) who might be ill and has symptoms similar to a common cold (runny nose, fever, sore throat, cough).

    These include frequent hand washing with soap or alcohol-based hand sanitizer and keeping at least one-meter distance from any person who coughs, sneezes or is ill.

  • Is there a vaccine?

    There is still no vaccine. It takes time to develop a new vaccine that will be effective and safe.

  • Which are the Referral Centers?

  • Which are the latest restrictions that the Government has taken?
