COVID 19: If chest "closing up" means difficulty breathing - than I would seek medical evaluation. Get urgent care for difficulty breathing, blue lips or face, marked persistent chest pain/ pressure or new onset confusion.
Dr. Frank Kuitems

Yes: Anybody with these Covid symptoms should seek urgent evaluation at a hospital
