Hi,I started having fever on thursday night, the same night I came back from Indonesia for a business trip. Besides fever, I also had body aches and stomach discomfort. No sputum,no nose blockage and no cough. Friday I went to see local GP and he gave me antibiotics and paracetamol.my symptoms are relieved after taking the medications but it comes back after 6 hours later. How do I confirm if I get the covid19?

Based on your question, you are currrently suffering from Fever, body aches and stomach discomfort after coming back from Indonesia.
