Cough And Afraid Of Corona
I am on public transportation, and there are people coughing so close to me. Because I got stuck, what should I do, Doc? afraid of getting the virus …
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, people who cough are not necessarily caused by corona virus infection. However, in the current pandemic of the corona virus, it must always be suspected of this possibility. If indeed you have been exposed (for example it is true that the person has a corona virus infection), then there is nothing you can do to get rid of the infection that has entered. The following are some things you can do:
Make sure you maintain your health and endurance by sleeping and getting enough rest (at least 7-9 hours a day), eating enough nutritious food, drinking enough, and not smoking. Note whether certain symptoms appear within the next 14 days (time period) incubation of this virus is 1-14 days, most often it is 5 days). If symptoms of respiratory tract infections appear, especially symptoms of fever and dry cough, immediately contact 119 ext 9 to find out the flow of further checks When symptoms appear, immediately isolate yourself at home, do not leave the house at all except to do the examination. You should wear a mask at all times (except when you are alone in the room) and practice the proper cough and sneeze etiquette. At home you must sleep in your own room, avoid contact as much as possible with people in your home, keep a minimum distance of 1.8-2 meters, do not share 1 plate of food with people in your house, do not use cutlery together, and frequently wash your hands with soap. During this pandemic, you are advised to stay at home as much as possible, keep your distance from other people, do not go to crowded and crowded places, and do not use public transportation, avoid contact with others, frequently wash your hands or use hand sanitizer if no hand washing area.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
