Hello Della, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
At present the incidence of covid infection 19 is indeed increasing. Due to the transmission that is very fast, of course, makes everyone panic. The symptoms of covid 19 infection are the same as other symptoms of the common cold, namely coughing, high fever above 38 degrees Celsius, and shortness of breath. This symptom is almost similar to the flu. Some diseases that have symptoms such as covid infection 19, namely:
In diagnosing patients with suspected covid 19, i.e. have a history of contact with patients who have been positively infected or have a history of traveling to affected countries / cities / regions. To ensure the diagnosis of covid infection 19, only with laboratory tests that currently not everyone can do the examination freely. If you do not have a history like the one above, you should not need to panic but still need to be vigilant. The symptoms of covid infection 19 are usually burdensome to people who have a history of previous comorbidities.
Right now what you should do is:
Stay alert and don't panic
Avoid going out of the house / traveling to a crowded place if it is not an emergency.
Do social distancing / self quarantine for at least 14 days.
Avoid contact with sick people.
Use a mask / apply ethics cough properly when coughing / runny nose.
Wash your hands often with soap, especially after / before touching something / doing activities.
Consult a doctor if you complain you are getting burdensome.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
