Dear Reader,As a Western doctor, I do not know of any TCM remedies that can help totreat COVID-19 specifically. However, neither do my TCM practitionerfriends. Some TCM concoctions may help in treating flu and fever symptomsbut I would not recommend them as prevention or treatment measures.

Some ways to entertain yourself during these trying times include: Learning a new hobby Reading Exercise at home Playing an instrument Listening to music Online gaming Cooking Writing a diary Calling your friends on the phone There are many interesting things to do during a lockdown especially in the realm of self-improvement.

Certainly not. The typical symptoms of a COVID-19 infection are fever dry cough and runny nose. Anosmia has also been described as a symptom in a significant percentage of patients.

Hence in short, you may not have a fever or flu symptoms to have a COVID-19 infection.
