Child with fever, sore throat, red bumps on throat, white coating on tongue, headache, negative strep test. Could this be virus?

My 8 year old daughter has had a fever ranging from 101 - 102 since Tuesday, with a sore throat , red bumps on throat, white coated tongue , headache . The strep test - 2 quick ones and one 48 hour one came back negative. Does this sounds like a virus? Is it normal for a virus to last with close to 102 fever for 4 days? Any suggestions?
