Hello Dr, Greetings. I would like to inquire about my health conditions. Last Saturday, I started to feel nauseated, chest pain and dry cough but not frequent. yesterday on Sunday, I started to feel headache on left side and sore throat. I just read today that one of the nearby mall got staff at Store B positive of Covid and I went to the mall Friday just the same day reported case happened. Luckily I didn’t went to the store, it’s just that I went there to have lunch. Am I under PUI category and should I practice self quarantine especially due to my chest pain and sore throat ?
