Hello Wati, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
COVID-19 has three main symptoms namely fever that exceeds 38 ° C, coughing, and shortness of breath. But other symptoms can appear such as nasal congestion, runny nose, headaches, discomfort in the throat, sore throat, nausea, diarrhea, muscle and joint pain, and so on. Neither the main symptoms nor the other symptoms mentioned are typical for COVID-19 because respiratory infections due to other viruses have very similar symptoms. A history of traveling to an infected area / country, a history of contact with a confirmed patient, and living and staying in a local transmission area can be considered in establishing a diagnosis of COVID-19. To enforce with certainty certainly necessary physical examination and important additions. If the complaint that you experience is accompanied by one of the abovementioned history immediately isolate yourself and contact a doctor.
Related to the complaint you feel, it is a symptom of inflammation in the throat that can be caused by various causes other than viral infections (such as influenza, common cold, COVID-19). Some of them are:
Irritation due to cigarette smoke, vehicle smoke, air pollution, to reflux stomach acid, and so on
To determine with certainty the cause, of course, a direct physical examination by a doctor and the necessary supporting examinations.
Here are the things you can do at this time:
Take care of your diet, avoid foods that are high in fat, too oily, and too spicy. Eat more fruits and vegetables
Drink plenty of warm water, avoid drinking too sweet because it can stimulate itching in the throat

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is recommended that you stay home and maximize your initial treatment efforts at home so that you can delay seeing your doctor. However, if symptoms persist or get severe immediately contact your doctor for further treatment. Use a mask and avoid using public transportation when going to see a doctor. Maintain a minimum distance of 1m from other people and adopt a healthy lifestyle while at home.
