Doc, my friend’s father has symptoms of dengue. Does it have anything to do with corona symptoms? How good is that?

1 Answer:

Hello Vina, Thank you for the question.


Dengue fever and corona virus infection are two different and unrelated infections. Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) / dengue fever is an infection caused by a dengue virus that is transmitted through mosquito bites. Dengue fever is a mild form of DHF, which causes symptoms of high fever, headache, pain behind the eyeball, joint and muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, skin rash, and decreased appetite. Dengue virus can cause leakage of blood vessels and attack platelet cells in the blood. In DHF, in addition to the symptoms above, also found symptoms of bleeding from the gums, nose, urine, or stool, shortness of breath, abdominal pain,


On the other hand, corona virus infection is caused by severe acute respiratory coronavirus-2 virus (SARS-CoV-2) which attacks the perchaasa that can be transmitted by:

inhale the coughing and sneezing of the sufferer
not directly by touching objects that are contaminated with this virus from the coughing or sneezing of other people and then touching the nose, mouth, or eyes
close contact with sufferers

Corona virus causes symptoms that are similar to the symptoms of the common cold but common symptoms that are usually experienced by sufferers are coughing, fever, and shortness of breath. history of contact with people suspected or confirmed corona virus infection.


To diagnose someone experiencing DHF, blood tests need to be done. Handling of DHF depends on the condition of each patient. In general, this infection does not require special treatment, the treatment given to patients is supportive, namely by maintaining the intake of food and drinks and medicines to relieve symptoms. If symptoms are still mild and platelet levels are not too low, it is generally possible to do independent treatment at home, but patients are still encouraged to have regular blood tests. However, in patients with more severe symptoms, especially if spontaneous bleeding appears and it is difficult to eat and drink, with very low platelet levels, usually having to undergo treatment in hospital. The doctor will also recommend more frequent blood tests if platelet levels are too low. In addition to administering intravenous fluids, doctors can also provide transfusions if needed, depending on the condition of each patient. Please advise your friend's father to consult with the doctor who is handling it to find out the right treatment steps for him.


I hope this helps.
