Hello, I’m 25 years old. It’s been ten days I WFH. During WFH, I was also only at home. Initially I caught a cold, my nose was blocked. But my throat does not hurt and is not short of breath. But now it’s the 10th day, my body aches, do not know whether this is muscle pain or pain alone. I gave you a patch already better. But in other parts, pain appears too. What does this hurt?
