COVID 19: Can't say. You could have a different infection super-imposed on residual COVID symptoms. You could have a new different strain of COVID 19. Or these may be waxing and waning residual COVID 19 symptoms. Contact your own medical provider or get telemedicine consult from an on-line provider for individualized guidance.
