Hello Vania, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading your complaint, it can indeed be an early symptom of Corona virus infection which is currently being spread in Indonesia, especially if the complaint appears within a span of 2-14 days after the possibility of exposure.
However, because your contact history is unclear and the possibility of your complaint can also be caused by several other possibilities such as common cold, influenza, ARI, inflammation of the throat, or inflammation of the tonsils, it is still quite high, so it is highly recommended to consult your complaint further to a doctor to evaluate both your condition and your risk for Corona virus infection. After being evaluated, it can be determined what treatment recommendations you should do based on your current condition.
