Actions That Must Be Taken When Living At Home With Suspect COVID-19
Good afternoon, Doc I want to ask a few questions, 1. If for example my family is included in the category of People in Monitoring because they have been in contact with positive patients with COVID-19, and I live in one house … do I also have to do isolation independent and may not leave the house to do activities such as work? 2. If, for example, my family is included as a Monitoring Person because they have just returned from the local COVID-19 transmission area, but the condition is healthy, and I live in one house … do I also have to do independent isolation and not be able to leave the house to do activities like work?
Hello Siti, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
COVID-19 is a respiratory infection due to the Corona virus. Have the main symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. For more details, you can read this article.
Related to these questions if you live in the same house with suspect you are required to do independent isolation at home. Try as much as possible not to leave the house and do the work as much as possible from home. This was also done to help stop the chain of transmission.
While in your house, your family who has the status of suspect, or other families still have to do physical distancing that is to keep a distance from each other at least 1m, especially for people who have a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 such as the elderly or people people who have chronic diseases, as well as pregnant women. suspect should be given rooms and daily equipment (such as cutlery, toothbrushes and trash cans) that are separated from other occupants. suspect must monitor his condition. In addition, all residents of the house must live a clean and healthy lifestyle by consuming healthy and nutritious food, adequate drinking and resting, regular exercise, and routine hand washing with soap and running water. Use a mask, especially if there are respiratory complaints. Stay in touch with family and friends through social media or telephone so that the relationship keeps going.
