Thank you for the question.
Colds, coughs, fever, ear pain, and diarrhea can indeed be part of COVID-19 (infection due to Corona virus). You are at high risk of contracting the disease if in the past 2 weeks you have been in contact with a COVID-19 sufferer, have traveled to areas that report local COVID-19 transmissions, or have had contact with people from regions that report local COVID-19 transmissions. Frequently, COVID-19 will also make sufferers feel pain or phlegm in their throat, tightness, muscle and joint pain, decreased appetite, fatigue, weakness, nausea, and many other complaints.
Not only COVID-19, your various complaints can also occur due to many other factors, such as viral or other bacterial infections, allergies, otitis media, intestinal inflammation, foreign body aspirations, immune disorders, drug effects, malignancies, and so on.
Distinguishing whether a complaint is caused by COVID-19 or not is certainly not as easy as an online consultation like this. To be more accurate, you should go directly to see your doctor, ENT doctor, or doctor of internal medicine, yes. If based on interviews and physical examination you are indeed suspected of having a serious illness or suspected of contracting COVID-19, then maybe you will be directed to undergo further tests, such as blood tests, x-rays, sputum tests, throat tissue swabs, and so on.
In the meantime, for complaints to improve, you need to do it first:
Use a mask Avoid allergens and irritants of the airways, for example cold, dust, pollution, smoke, animal hair Drink plenty of warm water Don't over-eat and drink cold and oily Improve personal hygiene and your environment Don't carelessly exchange personal belongings with others Take medicine paracetamol so that fever and ear pain is reduced Rest more Limit first to leave the house, unless there is an urgent matter Hopefully helps ..
