COVID concerns: Your symptoms could be from a bacterial or viral infection (to possibly include COVID 19). Medical assessment would help to sort this out. In South Africa- one needs to consult with a medical provider who will make determination about whether to test for COVID 19 or not. You can consult your local primary care provider. There are also other resources such as “Talk –to-Doctor” on HealthTap.
