Sore Throat And Possible Exposure To Covid-19
Doc, right now my throat is hurting on the right side, like someone is blocking it. Coughing is not often due to itchy throat. Don’t feel a fever. One week ago I was treated because of DHF with a fairly low platelet condition. 14 days ago I traveled to one of the local co-deployment regions. Is there a possibility that I will be exposed to the virus? How to find the most appropriate doctor or expert to minimize contracting and transmitting the covid virus?
