You're 5 days into a covid infection. Have you been vaccinated & boostered? No worrisome chest symptoms or further fever by now is a good sign. Drink lots of fluids. Isolate until you're absolutely free of symptoms for 48 hours although smell may take a while to return. Check with your physician as needed.
