I am woman, 27, I had a cold two weeks ago with fever, chill and runny nose. I recovered. But right now I am experiencing mild shortness of breath and chill, no cough and no runny nose. I have not came into contact with people from oversea and did not go to oversea recently. I travel by MRT to work everyday. Should I test for Covid-19 virus?
