Hello, I’m a 21-year-old female and I came down with a fever yesterday night sebab selsema. But I started having difficulty breathing also and it’s still ongoing even until now. The fever subsided when I took panadol but I can still feel chills and tightness on my chest and shoulder blade area. The selsema thankfully stopped though. I don’t have coughs but I can feel a sore throat coming. I need to know whether I have to get checked or not because I don’t want to infect my family. If I do have to get checked, where exactly do I go?
