Hello, based on your symptoms it might be a normal flu, you need to give a detail history, whether you came in contact with other person having flu and cough, or whether you have a travel history. Coronavirus takes a duration of 14 days to develop so check that in 2 weeks if you have this history of meeting people , going in crowd, or travelling. Also for symptomatic treatment have a Benadryl-CR, three times a day for 4 days, saline gargle, take steam. And of still concern about coronavirus , 50 to 60 percent the symptoms are very mild and your body can easily fight with it. Just isolate yourself at home so that you dont spread it to other people.

As your symptoms suggest. You may have normal flu but if you have a travel history or in contact with person with a travel history, then get yourself tested. Secondly you can take a consultation before tasting and take some medicines, so you can get better. Take care.

plz do not worry to think about covid19 because your sign and symptoms suggest most probably you have a normal flu but if you have a difficulty in breathing and traveling history. so you have to consult with doctor. thank you
