JA: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?
Customer: Sorry I am not coughing very much not like patients I have seen on tv
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Not really take medicine for IBS not severe. I can cope with symptoms as they stand. I am wondering if next Tuesday if I feel better can I get out to shops,or should I start another 14 days. Just me an the wife in house, she is OK at minute

Hello, my name is Dr Uzair and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

You should continue isolation for 2 weeks and if your symptoms do not settle by the end of two weeks then isolate till they last.

Meanwhile, take panadol, lots of ginger tea, chicken stock, and soups t build your immunity.
