Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting the query

It is regular symptom of covid to have throat irritation. You can give her paracetamol 650 mg 1 tablet 6 hourly and povidine iodine throat gargling 3 times a day. If symptoms persists for more than 3- 4 days she would need to consult doctor in person to get antibiotics prescribed. Give her lot of fluids and vitamin c rich food like citrus fruits and green leafy vegetables

Any issues do follow up
Take care
