Hi. 2 days ago I had to run from the supermarket to my vehicle in heavy pouring rain. Upon reaching home I took a hot bath. However, Next morning (yesterday) I checked and I had slight fever (max 37.2C). Through out the day, I checked my temperature since then, it has been fluctuating from normal (36.4C) up to max 37.5C. I have not been out of the state since last year. I only go out for grocery shopping twice a week, with masks and sanitise with 75% on trolleys and my hands. Also, these few days I’ve been very thirsty, at least 3L a day.
