Hi, I’m Male, 32yo. Back from Jakarta (Indonesia) last Friday (28-Feb) night. Cough badly, phelgm in throat, effort in breathing in Jakarta a day before return to Malaysia, took cough medicine after return to Malaysia and even antibiotics by clinic doctor. Situation getting better, just still have dry cough from time to time, and also feeling body pain and slightly hot around body. Clinic dr. was recommend me to take a proper test in hospital if this situation remain until today. And I’m planning to hospital today, just before depart saw a post from media, better consult first before step to hospital. With my scenario shall I get an appointment with hospital for further verification?
