Hello Nevi, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Corona virus is a virus that causes respiratory tract infection, known as COVID 19. This disease can cause symptoms that are mild to severe and even death. Signs and symptoms of this corona virus infection were initially like the common cold. But typically, this disease has symptoms such as:
High fever above 38 degrees Celsius. Cough. Out of breath. This disease can affect all ages, ranging from children, adolescents, adults, and also the elderly. The severity and severity of the symptoms also affect the accompanying illnesses previously suffered such as diabetes mellitus, heart disease, lung disease, cancer, HIV / AIDS, etc.
Based on the complaint you feel, it's a common cold symptom. If you don't have a history of traveling to an infected country, or contact with sick people, the risk of transmission is less. However, corona virus transmission is indeed very fast. Transmission of this virus through splashes of saliva / sneezing / coughing from people suffering from COVID 19. Therefore, it is strongly recommended for people who are sick to wear masks or apply the ethics of coughing and sneezing correctly so that the spark from coughing / sneezing / spitting doesn't stick everywhere and can reduce transmission to others. And for healthy people, it is strongly recommended to wash your hands with soap after and before touching, eating, drinking or doing something.
If your complaint does not improve or even worsen, you should consult your nearest doctor for a direct examination on you. If you experience complaints / symptoms of corona virus infection, and have a previous history of contact / travel as mentioned above, treatment should be taken immediately to a doctor or hospital. Right now what you can do is:
Use a mask when you are sick. Apply the correct cough / sneezing ethic to reduce transmission to others. Enough rest. Maintain a nutritious diet. Consume lots of water. Regular exercise. Consumption of cold medicines that are sold freely in pharmacies. Consult a doctor if the complaint does not improve in order to get the appropriate treatment from the examination on you. That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
