Hello Dr

How high is your temperature? Your concern with a fever is covid19, and you need to self isolate As long as our symptoms are mild, you should stay home. You should call 111, which is the hotline is you feel you need testing. Do you have a cough at all?
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Temperatures not too hot and I don’t have a cough
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Can I get tested please?
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
And is there any medication I can be taking to help my immune system please?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 17 days ago.
If you have no temperature and no cough then you do not meet any criteria for testing. Remember that we do not have enough testing kits, so they need to be reserved for those who are sick. Medications do not do a great job to boost the immune system. It’s more effective to use hand washing, hand sanitation precautions and stay secluded. Some things that are natural that may help are turmeric and or ginger supplement or an over the counter medication called Airborne. These items are hard to find now.
