COVID 19 testing: These symptoms could be caused by COVID 19. In South Africa- one consults with a medical provider who will determine need for COVID 19 testing. Consult your local primary care provider or you can use telemedicine for individual consultations. I live in the US - so I don't know about any possible testing restrictions in Sandton.
