Coughing: Sorry to hear that. It could be sinusitis with post nasal drip making you cough. Covid-19 is a possibility and another possibility is pneumonia. Chest pain can be secondary to cough causing inflammation of ribs or due to pneumonia. Please consult a local physician to get examined and get treated and tested appropriately. Please quarantine until then.

Contact doctor: I agree with the other doctor. The alternative is to have an online virtual consultation first to discuss your symptoms in more detail and to decide if you have to go for a COVID-19 test. If the doctor thinks that this sounds more like a bacterial infection, you may be prescribed antibiotics. The doctor may also indicate that you need a face-to-face consultation.
