Hello Gokma,

Thank you for the question.

Typically, COVID-19 (a disease due to the new Corona virus) will cause respiratory symptoms, such as colds, coughing, shortness, sore throat, fever, muscle and joint pain, changes in appetite, fatigue, nausea, and so on. However, you also need to understand, that the symptoms of COVID-19 can be different in each person. In people with good endurance, it is not uncommon for the disease to be asymptomatic at all. Therefore, if you ask, whether the complaint that you are experiencing right now is a symptom of COVID-19 or not, the answer can be yes, it can be no. Judging from your history of contact with your colleague who is a suspect COVID-19, then you could indeed be infected with this disease.

In addition to COVID-19, sneezing, pain and lumps in the throat, fever, nasal congestion and mucus, pain in the back and fingers can also occur due to viral or other bacterial infections, benign or malignant tumors in the airways, gastric acid reflux , allergies, foreign body entry, immune disorders, psychological disorders, and so on.

Our advice, if your fever has subsided and there are no more complaints that you feel at this time, do not panic. Take a few steps to handle yourself like:

 Stay at home (do not go out, except for urgent matters), do not close contact with others, wear a mask during sneezing and discomfort in your throat has not healed, do not also exchange personal items with others More diligent bathing, washing hands to clean, and always wear clean clothes Keep yourself away from allergens and irritants of the airways, such as cold, dust, dry air, pollen, animal hair, smoke, and pollution Regular meals balanced nutritious food, with small portions but often Do not used to consume cold food, artificial sweetness, and greasy Stay away from cigarettes and smoke Regular exercise every day If with this effort your complaints do not also improve for a long time, or if there are signs of danger, such as high fever for more than 3 days, shortness, and so on , immediately check yourself to the doctor so that it is handled correctly, yes .. If deemed necessary, the doctor can direct you to consume the drug, perform supporting tests (such as blood tests, sputum testing, x-rays), or see a specialist in internal medicine / ENT.
