Data released by the Health Ministry’s Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre showed that dengue cases usually start increasing in May and would spike after the monsoon during July and August.
“With the anticipated spike in dengue cases, Allianz Care@Home provides our customers with the reassurance and peace of mind by having the option to receive the best professional medical care in the comfort of home instead of having to wait for admission in a hospital. Not just that, patients diagnosed with cellulitis and gastroenteritis can also benefit from the professional home medical care of Allianz Care@Home by getting the medical assistance at home as most cases can be managed in an outpatient setting,” Allianz Life CEO, Charles Ong, said.
Allianz Care@Home is currently available in Klang Valley, Penang, Ipoh, Negeri Sembilan,
Melaka and Johor, with the service coverage to be expanded to other states in the near future.
