Hello Wulan, thank you for being empowered at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of shortness of breath can be caused by various conditions. One of them is a viral infection. One of the viral infections that is currently becoming an epidemic is COVID-19 due to Corona virus. The main symptoms are fever (> 38 ° C), coughing, and shortness of breath, but these symptoms are not typical. Respiratory disorders due to other viruses also have symptoms similar to COVID-19. So to determine it certainly needs to be done a complete examination that starts from a medical interview to find out whether there is a history of traveling to COVID-19 infected areas, or a history of contact with confirmed patients, or living and settling in a local transmission area. Furthermore, complete physical examination and additional examinations such as blood tests, chest X-ray images, chest CT scans, and PCR are needed. So if you experience complaints and have a history, it helps you immediately see a doctor by continuing to use a mask and avoid using public transportation.
Apart from due to viral infections, several possible causes of shortness of breath can be bacterial infections such as tuberculosis and pneumonia, trauma to the chest, GERD, to certain psychological conditions such as anxiety and panic.
