Am I Affected By The Symptoms Of Corona Virus?
Last Saturday my body was hot and my head hurt, but only for 1 day. My throat also hurts when I swallow. Until now it still hurts when swallowing but has been reduced, and sometimes itchy throat. But I do not cough and runny nose, but only occasional cough due to itchy throat. Am I exposed to the symptoms of corona virus?
