There is no way to differentiate between throat pain of normal flu and covid, only an RTPCR can confirm or refute covid. But Covid will mostly present with fever and other symptoms like myalgias, cough etc. Meanwhile isolate uaself, do gurgles with betadine diluted in half glass of water three times a day. And get an Rtpcr done.
Next Steps
Get a video consultation with detailed history, like travel history contact information, fever, oxygen saturation etc.
Health Tips
Dont worry most probably its not covid, but even if its covid mostly it will be mild and go away with symptomatic treatment only
