Hello, me and my girlfriend just returned from Taipei 6 says ago and she’s currently having fever since last night. It went up to 37.4 degree but managed to bring it down to 36.7 after taken some paracetamol. She’s also feeling a little unwell with her tummy but got no diarrhea or vomiting yet. Just wondering if these are the earlier symptom for covid19 and can we attend to a normal GP for further checking?
