Contact With Suspect Who Has Been Traveling To The Red Zone

Yesterday, my friend went to a city that has been declared a corona red zone, then he returned home healthy without any signs of corona symptoms, then I contacted him, then he checked into the health center and he was declared suspect because he had a history of going to the city is already in the red zone, but he is healthy, no complaints whatsoever, then he is told to be isolated. Am I also going to be isolated, but I’m also healthy not feeling any pain.

Hello Firda,

Thank you for the question.

People who have traveled to the red zone of COVID-19 can indeed be classified as suspect (people in monitoring) COVID-19. Therefore, even though no symptoms appear, he is still required to isolate himself for at least 14 days to minimize the risk of transmitting the virus to others. Because, indeed not all sufferers of COVID-19 will cause typical clinical symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of appetite, weakness, and so on. So, the emergence of clinical symptoms in your suspect partner, does not necessarily mean that he is free from viruses.

Even if you do not live or have traveled to the red zone of COVID-19, if you have contacted with your colleague whose status is suspect-COVID-19, then you are also indirectly declared as suspect-COVID-19. Therefore, even though you undergo isolation for at least 14 days, for your own good, as well as other people around you.

Of course, during this isolation, you are not only advised to remain silent without doing anything. Instead, you need to do too:

 Get enough sleep 6-9 hours a day Diligent bathing and hand washing frequently with soap Keep a distance from others at least 2 meters Do not exchange personal items, including eating and bathing utensils, with others Discipline of exercise and eating nutritionally balanced food If later You feel a complaint that is severe and resembles the symptoms of COVID-19, you can check yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine in order to be given the right management huh ..

I hope this helps.
