I had a sore throat on Monday. I took lozenges and cooling drinks. Throat okay on Tuesday afternoon. Headache developed on Tuesday night. Body aches followed. Very bad headache, nauseous and fatigue on Wednesday. Couldn’t work. From Thursday to Saturday, headache on and off. Tired most of the time. Burped quite often. Today, slight headache. So far, no fever.
Appreciate your advice.

Greetings!

Thank you for your question. I understand you are worried about your symptoms being caused by the COVID-19 infection. Unfortunately, your symptoms are non-specific to just COVID-19, but to a list of other respiratory conditions too. Based on your symptoms, you are encouraged to answer the quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate your health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories. According to WHO, the common symptoms of COVID-19 infection are:

  • Fever (more than 37.5 degrees celcius)
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Aches and pains
  • Sorethroat
  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath

If you’re in medium-high risk you’ll required to be quarantine for 14 days and if you’re in high risk group you’ll need to come to the hospital immediately. As COVID-19 test can be done in all government hospital. However, they would only did if you’re in high risk group.

Boost your immune system with a balanced diet and good nutrition.

Here are just general answer for your concern. For more information on coronavirus, please visit the official Ministry of Health portal at link here (MOH COVID-19 Portal). You can also consult a doctor for free regarding your condition by clicking Ask Doctor link on the portal.

I hope this is somehow helpful for you. Thank you.
