I am a reporter who always work outside during outbreak of Covid-19. My eyes are itchy these few days and I unsure it caused by some type of allergy or other reason. It forces me to rub my eyes by using tissue paper (scare if there any virus on my hand surface). One of my eyes now redness and swelling. And I also get flu by keeping sneezing.
