Possibly: 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. If you are in South Africa, my understanding is that a medical provider would need to make a referral.

What r your symptoms: It would help us to assist you better if you mention the symptoms that you are experiencing. If it's any three or more that my colleague,Dr Heidi Fowler has listed : Dry cough, fever, shortness of breath, nasal congestion, body pains, headache,loss of taste/smell,vomiting,diarrhea,
feeling cold, then you need to contact your health care provider for a referral to go test for Covid-19.
