When you have COVID cough, it is best to stay inside.

Coughing, sore throats and runny nose are all frequent symptoms of COVID-19, as well as common cold. Red eyes, loss of taste and smell, and other COVID-19 symptoms were clear indications of the illness early during the pandemic, but most patients no longer have these recognisable symptoms. However, COVID cough still remains a major symptom even though it may be difficult to distinguish it from a regular one.

An increase in an existing cough's strength or the beginning of a new one is the hallmark of COVID cough. Most COVID coughs are chronic. Its dry texture is a telltale symptom of COVID cough. Many people who have contracted COVID report having a dry cough that is primarily phlegm-free, despite the fact that many health agencies simply list cough as a COVID symptom.

In any case, consulting a doctor is a must before utilising any herbal medicines.
