Fever Up And Down, Sore, Tongue Feels Bitter, And Dizzy Are The Symptoms Of Corona?
Excuse me doc, I want to ask you from 2 days ago I have a fever and now the fever has gone down. After the fever went down, the next morning I sunbathe and the effects after sunbathing my body aches until the following days, my sense of taste also does not work well, aka it feels bitter and my head is very dizzy. After I read the article about the symptoms of corona virus, I was worried. What actions should I take now? Thank you

Thank you for the question.
Symptoms due to a new Corona virus infection (COVID-19) can range from no symptoms at all, mild symptoms (such as fever, cough, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, aching muscles and joints, headache, dizziness), to severe symptoms (such as shortness of breath, chills, weakness, vomiting, loss of consciousness) which can be very deadly.
So, your condition that has fever up and down, aches, tongue feels bitter, and dizziness can indeed be part of the symptoms of COVID-19. But in addition, viral or other bacterial infections, even factors other than infection (for example inflammation, allergies or irritation disorders, gastric acid reflux, stress, fibromyalgia, etc.) can trigger complaints as you experience.
If your fever just lasts 1-3 days without any other serious complaint, you should not panic first. Do it first handling independently at home, such as by:
Rest more at home, don't leave the house unless it's urgent
Take paracetamol medicine
Drink plenty of water and eat a variety of balanced nutritious foods
Rest 6-9 hours a day
Don't think too much
Diligently brush your teeth and rinse with salt solution
If with the above efforts your complaint has improved, then you do not need to rush to see a doctor so that your risk of contracting a serious illness (including COVID-19) can be minimized. Conversely, if it appears other complaints that are more severe, then do not delay checking your doctor or doctor of internal medicine in order to be given appropriate treatment.
Hope this helps ...
