Healthdirect COVID-19 Symptom and Antiviral Eligibility Checker is now available

To help more Australians understand their COVID symptoms, what care they need and if they may be eligible for antiviral treatment, the healthdirect COVID-19 Symptom and Antiviral Eligibility Checker is now available in 11 languages. These languages include Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), English, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese. 

The COVID-19 Symptom and Antiviral Eligibility Checker is a simple self-help tool to help Australians understand if they:  

  • have COVID-19 symptoms that mean they need to get medical help or will be able to recover at home 
  • may be eligible for a COVID-19 antiviral treatment and should contact their GP for assessment 

To date, the symptom checker has been used nearly 14 million times to help people. To increase awareness of the symptom checker and assist more people in the community, we are sharing in-language social assets – please use these materials in your social media channels as appropriate.
