A covid test, chest x-ray, and blood counts are essential.

The majority of these cases are viral infections and the following would help you;

1) Rest

2) Plenty of liquids

3) Vitamin C and Zinc supplements.

4) Probiotics.

5) Lemon water (warm) with honey.

6) Tylenol/Ibuprofen

7) Deep breathing exercises.

8) Menthol steam inhalation.

9) Warm mist humidifier in the room.

10) Nasal saline drops if the nose is blocked.
