? telephonic consult: If you are able, consult telephonically with your GP. If not, do not go into public places, rather get symptomatic treatment - let someone who is well do this as swiftly as they can. Otherwise continue consulting on this forum. We can help you. If you have access to a test this is the ONLY way to know if you truely have it.

COVID 19: Recommend medical consultation & COVID 19 testing. Rest, hydration, acetaminophen, decongestant, cough med & nasal saline irrigation may help mild symptoms. Make sure to quarantine. Get emergency care for difficulty breathing, blue lips or face, significant & persistent chest pain or new-onset of confusion.
