You posted on the Free Public Health Education site for HealthTap where we do not diagnosis, treat or refer. In ZA, a medical provider evals to decide if COVID 19 testing is indicated. Contact your own medical provider or get telemedicine consult from an on-line provider. She should be tested & if positive you may need to be tested too.
