A 21-year-old female asked:
I've recently developed a dry cough and some asthmatic symptoms. i have some sort of a nasal drip that has been here for a week or so.
i am afraid it might be early symptoms of covid 19, am i overreacting or should i go see a doctor?

Test/isolate: Please arrange a screening test to rule out COVID 19. The symptoms may be very mild and please stay home, monitor your temperature and watch for flu like symptoms. If the test is positive, household contacts should also be screened. You may have another viral illness or an allergic reaction. Rinse nasal passages with saline and use an antihistamine for allergic symptoms. Avoid smoke and dust.
