This week, you could begin to experience coughing and chest congestion but don't panic, according to doctors, the Saharan Dust could bring on an allergic reaction.
"It can feel 'flu like', you can have increased coughing, you can have chest congestion and those can be confused with signs of COVID," Dr. Diaz said.
Allergists also recommend you stay home to avoid the Saharan dust. Allergists recommend you monitor your symptoms over the next week as some can resemble COVID-19. They also remind you to wash your hands frequently and use a mask as it can help stop you from inhaling the dust.
