I had symptoms of corona 9 days ago, started with a terrible

This answer was rated:

Hi I had symptoms of corona 9 days ago, started with a terrible head ache and fever of 38.8 paracetamol controlled it and things calmed down after 3 days. On day 5 I developed a cough which has progressively got worse. Today is day 9 and my terrible head ache has returned and my cough continuous. I have also lost my voice and have a gurgling in my throat, but do not have a temperature. Should I be doing anything other than taking paracetamol, hot drinks and resting. Many thanks kate

JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No I have no medical history
