Colds Accompanied By Sneezing, What Are The Symptoms Of COVID-19?
Doc, I am currently 20 years old, from March 18 until now March 23, I caught a cold but I did not have a fever and cough, but sometimes I also sneezed.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically COVID-19 disease has the main symptoms of fever and dry cough. Symptoms such as shortness of breath usually only occur in people who have severe infections, generally occurs in people who are elderly and have comorbidities. Colds themselves are very rarely found in this disease and even if found generally only occurs in young children.
Seeing the symptoms that you experience, the possibility of you experiencing COVID-19 is actually quite small. However, as people who experience symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections, you are strongly advised to keep isolating yourself at home until all your symptoms disappear:
You are advised not to leave the house unless there is a very urgent situation (you should not go to college first). Sleep in your own room, not with other people Minimize contact with people in your home, especially with parents and people who have comorbidities Use masks unless you are alone in your room Wash your hands frequently with soap, suggest people at home You do the same Do not eat from the same plate with other people, do not use cutlery together Also Take care of your body's health and endurance by getting enough sleep, eating enough, drinking enough, exercising enough, and not smoking. your symptoms, if you have a fever, cough, or heavy breathing difficulties, call 119 ext 9 to find out the flow of further examination.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
