Splenectomy: The spleen usually battles bacteria. Bacteria are not viruses. COVID 19/SARS CoV -2 is a virus. I would proceed with good hygiene. Wash your hands, keep your hands away from your face. Stay away from individuals that cough or sneeze.
A 33-year-old female asked:
Dr. Frederick Butler

Viral Syndrome: You may have COVID 19. You may have the flu virus, Influenza. Either way it sounds like you may have caught a virus. You may want to report to an Urgent care for evaluation. You may want to wear a mask.
