I understand your concern.
As it has been 3 weeks for your symptoms and COVID 19 symptoms get worse within a few days after initial symptoms.
Currently, no antiviral medication is recommended to treat COVID-19. Treatment is directed at relieving symptoms and may include:

Try such measures as we discussed earlier.
