There are many things that can cause your symptoms besides Covid. So, if your Covid test is negative, you need to return to your doctor and get more tests done, including a test for malaria, especially if you are having fevers. Your doctor needs to diagnose the problem before it can be treated. So, see your doctor again with your negative Covid test! Best of luck and feel better soon!!

Those symptoms could be from various causes. Symptoms of malaria include repeated bouts of symptoms such as (high) fever, malaise, marked sweating, chills with shaking, headache, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.
