When you know the symptoms, how they present and the timeline of incubation, then you will make a better decision. However in cases of severe symptoms, The only way to know if you suffer from COVID-19 is through a special lab test called PCR. The PCR test is currently available through the Ministry of Health Kenya (Toll free *719*) . However COVID-19, being a lower respiratory illness does not typically have runny nose, nasal congestion,sneezing or sore throat. ~Dr. Fred Mavisi, CKO, Afya Plan. Ref. WHO.Int
