Hello. Good night doctor, I want to ask why yes lately my lungs when breathing or not breathing like being stabbed and sick. In Corona’s news it should be fever, flu, sore throat, coughing, and shortness of breath. While I have been experiencing symptoms lately for the first week the phlegm continues but the color is white. Continue to be like this when breathing or not hurt like a stab and throat like inflammation. That’s why doctor? Please respond as soon as possible. I’m afraid and don’t get Corona, thank you very much
