?: In RSA today no one can be considered immune to get SARS Cov 2 infection and you don’t need to have a classical presentation to test positive. There’s no harm in going for the test if it crosses your mind that you could be infected. The majority of infected people are not sure where exactly they got infected

COVID concerns: Suspicion for COVID 19 is higher if you have at least 2 of these symptoms: temp of at least 99.6, Cough, Shortness of breath, Chills, Shivering, Muscle pain, Headache, Sore throat or new loss of taste or smell. Agree with earlier response. We can't tell you if you have COVID 19 or not, because symptoms overlap with other conditions.
