Hello. I was wondering that by doing home quarantine and take some medicine could naturally recover from the COVID-19. I have been at home since the first day of MCO, and for the past few days, I have experienced 2 symptoms that apparently related to COVID-19 such as difficulty in breathing and runny nose. However I took Pantalon and the next day I am free from runny nose and my breathing eases more. So, I am curious whether these symptoms might be relatable with COVID or it’s just might be for the other things? Do I need to get tested or I just resume staying home at the moment?
