Brief Answer:
Viral arthralgia likely.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the multiple joints that your wife is getting without any history of previous arthritis is likely to be related to the viral fever that she has. The viral fever is associated with joint pain that may persist for few weeks even after the fever subsides.
The best way to treat such pains is mild pain killer, calcium supplements and a diet rich in vitamin C. She can continue taking paracetamol and take ibuprofen after meals for any acute pain. Doing a hot compress of the affected joints will also help.
In case the pain is persistent then do consult an orthopedician for proper investigations.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
