I am a 31 years old male, I am having a fever around 37.5 for 3 days now, I have also lost my appetite, I also have experienced at least 3 diarrhea for the past week, mild cough and constant headache and also starting to experience weight loss.
I am a smoker and also live alone.
I have received news that there is an outbreak that went down in a wet market that I went to recently, should I get tested?
