Hello Doctor, My Father Had Severe Cough A Week Before,

default
Posted on Thu, 23 Jun 2022
Question: Hello Doctor, My father had severe cough a week before, He is a doctor, a general Physician. He was worried of COVID Infection and immediately took a rapid antigen kit test and a chest CT Scan. The rapid kit test showed negative but the CT Scan showed mild lung infection. I have attached the CT Scan Report. He is vaccinated already ( 2 doses - Covishield ) But then within 2 days the symptoms subsided and was off. His Blood oxygen saturation level is also normal. He has no symptoms now but says he feels tired always. As we have a 2.5 yrs old baby in home we are worried of going to a hospital to have consultation and thought of having an online consultation. Should he go for any other tests are any other treatment required. Please advice on the same. Thanks.
