Hello dock, I want to ask, some days my head feels dizzy then at some time feels tired once more coupled with colds and shortness of breath so it’s hard to move. Symptoms of a cold and shortness of breath have been going on for about 5 days and do not heal for some time sometimes sneezing or coughing. Previously, about 4 days ago I had a chance to travel to Semarang but briefly did not arrive in 3 hours and then returned. Do my symptoms have anything to do with corona? Thank you
Hello Grizzly's ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Cough, runny nose and sneezing that you feel can be caused by several conditions such as due to weather changes, low body immunity, overactivity, and also due to exposure to the virus. Normally complaints of cough, colds can disappear in the range of the longest an average of 1 week. In your situation, it is necessary to find out whether in your area you have visited have been exposed or suspected corona, whether the person you have met has a history of traveling abroad for the past 2 weeks or been exposed to the corona virus, and whether during your trip you were in a fit state or not , maintain cleanliness such as touching the face without washing hands first. If you are not sure about this, you should do social distancing or keep a distance from the surroundings, while increasing your body's immunity by eating nutritious foods, getting enough rest and taking immune enhancing vitamins. And don't forget to take a cold cough medicine as recommended by the medicine, if you buy it at the pharmacy. The corona virus incubation period is approximately 14 days, you can monitor the condition of your body temperature during the incubation period, normally the body temperature is 3.5 - 37.5 degrees Celsius.
In a situation where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if it is not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so that you are not exposed to the virus, don't forget to wash your hands especially when you want to hold the face area (eyes, nose and mouth), if there is a complaint such as a sore throat that feels worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by a fever of more than 38 degrees Celsius, a cough, a cold that does not heal even after taking the medicine, until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, despite trying taking medication, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further tests.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
