Good morning,here I have some questions about covid 19. I had been coughing since December last year bwhich sometimes not coughing and sometimes couhing due to allergic rhinitis. And during theses few days, I am coughing and feeling a bit tekak kering and sedikit panas. I never go to any places with high infection but I am currently working in pharmacy shop and had contacted with a lot of customers. Is it the symptoms for covid 19??
