Characteristics Of People Affected By Covid 19
Permission to ask a doctor. I don’t know about this problem, but I don’t want people near me to get this plague. My father the day after yesterday got the task to spray disinfectant liquid in one of the residents’ houses. Back from there, my father experienced nothing. Then yesterday, my father coughed for a while, and got word that the house of the resident that my father sprayed was said to suspect covid 19. From there I panicked, my mother suddenly on the same day felt weak, my father too. How is this doctor, I’m very scared.

Hello Afifa, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Corona virus is a new virus that causes a disease called COVID-19 (Corona Virus Infection Disease). This virus can affect anyone, whether babies, children, adults, the elderly, pregnant women, and also breastfeeding. Conditions that can be caused by COVID-19 infection vary, from asymptomatic (asymptomatic), mild symptoms such as coughing cold colds, to severe symptoms such as pneumonia symptoms such as shortness of breath which can lead to respiratory failure.
When your family has symptoms of a mild cough flu after traveling from an infected area, or contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19, there is no need to panic. There is no need to go directly to the hospital. Keep doing physical distancing and quarantine independently at home for 14 days. Take vitamins every day and wear masks every day. By staying at home for 14 days, the body's immune system will strengthen itself, so that viral infections can be resisted and healed by itself. If the cough is getting heavier and appears crowded, then contact the hospital's COVID-19 Referral number closest to your home so your family suspected of being infected with the corona virus can be picked up by an ambulance. You can also check whether you have risk factors for corona infection or not by clicking this link.
In order to prevent corona virus transmission, you can also do the following:
Always wear a mask especially when traveling, even if you don't feel pain.
Do not travel outside the city or abroad where the corona virus is endemic
Wash hands with soap and water, if not, use hand sanitizer
Maintain endurance by taking vitamins every day, eating nutritiously balanced foods, multiply drinking at least 1.5 liters of water per day, and keep doing sports at home.
Avoid contact with wild animals that have the potential to transmit the corona virus
I hope this helps.
