Coughing is a very common thing that happens due to change in weather, pollution, common cold etc. but when is it an indicator of COVID-19 infection? When it is dry. Coughing normally is followed by sebum production to lubricate your sore throat. It doesn’t happen when you are infected by the COVId-19 virus.
Fever and headache

Painful joints during these symptoms can be another thing you should check for, but make sure it is not because of your workouts, or any underlying condition you probably have like hyperthyroid, gout, etc.
If you are feeling tired without a reason, and have all the above-stated symptoms you should get yourself tested. It is important to be sure and know that there is no reason to panic. Most of the cases around the world are recovering and so can you.
Difficulty in breathing
Panting, or difficulty in breathing can be caused by acidity, working out too much pollution, or asthma allergies. But if you don’t have any of the above, and also see yourself having dry cough. Although this happens in severe cases, where you should be isolated from your friends and family to not spread the same.
