Thanks for your suggestion.

I started with cold first(sneezing and runny nose). Later by 1 day got fever. Is this the symptoms of Covid19?

I have seen many persons without any symptoms but covid positive while many others with many symptoms and no corona. Don’t get too stressed.

No one can decide just by symptoms if you are infected by CoViD or not… just get tested (ask ASHA workers in your area, they will arrange for slot for you to get tested) and you can have peace of mind!!


I also had runny nose, sneezing 1st day, fever (101.8 ℉) from 3rd-4th day. Now(tenth day), I only have throat irritation/cough with phlegm (very irritating, though)
Meantime, I went to two diff senior dr in my area both says not to worry regarding CoViD, this is just Viral Infection and will take time for the phlegm to completely go.

I thought you tested again and it was positive, again. In any case, without having any knowledge in the matter common sense says get tested again whether you are Covid positive this time around or not. I don’t know which test is the most through or most accurate though.

And yes, wear N95 mask at all times (surgical at the least, even in home), drink plenty water and do what other more experienced members advise you.

Good luck dude, I hope it’s not Covid this time and just a seasonal flu and you recover perfectly fine.

Take proper rest plus medicines and home made kada and all… Make urself isolate from too younger or elder family person…
Wait for 3-4 days… If nothing goes well please do the test again otherwise no need to worry… Keep urself calm and compose… 🙂

I was also having runny nose 3 days back. So pissed off with the sight of all the medicines stocked on the headboard, I decided to give cold a cold shoulder, took a plastic bottle cap of cold syrup and kept it under my nostril to collect the thing you know what for sometime. I don’t know whether nose either got tired or it felt ignored but it stopped running after a while. Try it, this is the least you could do without worrying much.

let’s hope that the rest of it is true (it being just a cold).. but that swab thing (that too in our great/mahaan country) is an exercise in futility (in most cazes).
.
Better to go for CT scan (although it too is a money making business. and causes some exposure to radiation) but for chest, lungs and other stuff.. it is a fairly indicative non intrusive option.
.
For SARS-Cov-02 (and now 03?) the blood sample thing might be better than to have the nostrils snd throat violated.
.
Just my two paise.

Dont worry. Stay calm. Visit a doctor in case you feel very ill.

Take regular steam inhalation for quicker symptomatic relief.

It can be both, but given your history of precious COVID infection, it must be flu now. We can never be sure unless you go for RT PCR.

COVID or FLU, nothing to worry about. Just hydrate well, rest, drink hot soups, and take care. You will get back in no time.
