ZA or USA?: COVID 19 sx’s: dry cough, shortness of breath, chest tightness, nasal congestion, fever, headache, sore throat, feeling tired, loss of sense of taste/smell, decreased appetite, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, chills & muscle aches. My understanding is that in South Africa- one needs to consult with a medical provider who will then make the determination about whether they will make a COVID 19 testing
