Hi, I’ve had runny nose the first day and then fever at 37.9 degree celcius the next day, but after that my temperature are ranged between 36.6 to 37.4. I do not feel fatigue, dry cough, headache, short breathing, but I feel weird at the middle of my chest. When i burp, i felt the stomach acid in my throat

I did not travel overseas but within sarawak. I did take a good care of my personal hygiene such as washing hand and so on.
