Patient has predominantly respiratory findings ,like chest tightness ,cough, fever, tachypnoea, and reduced SPO2. Clinical exam shows decreased breath sounds left base. He is a smoker. Since xray chest is normal , better do CT chest. Abdominal ultrasound for LLQ tenderness. Need to rule out COVID pneumonia ,suggest RTPCR for COVID

Thank you,Doctor
