Viral respiratory : You likely have a viral respiratory tract infection. Manage with paracetamol and gargle with salt water or Disprin. Everyone is concerned about Corona virus. This is unlikely unless you have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed or has traveled from a high risk area. In any event, isolate yourself from others, stay at home and adopt strict hygiene measures: hand washing, alcohol use
