Hello Guston, Thank you for the question.
The case of the corona virus is indeed a hot problem these days because it causes pandemics in various parts of the world. This virus is transmitted from person to person by inhaling coughing or sneezing from the sufferer, indirectly by touching the nose, mouth, or eyes after touching objects contaminated with the virus from the coughing spark and sneezing of the patient, or contact with the sufferer. This virus can cause symptoms 2-14 days after someone is exposed. Symptoms that appear in general are common cold symptoms such as cough, runny nose, sore throat, fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, chest pain, shortness of breath. However, no common symptoms are cough, high fever, and shortness of breath. A person can be suspected of having a corona virus infection if they have the above symptoms and a history of traveling to another country with a corona virus case or contact with another person who is suspected or has been confirmed to have a corona virus in the last 2 weeks.
If you experience symptoms but there is no history mentioned above, then your risk of corona virus is currently low. Your symptoms can also be caused by colds, strep throat, bronchitis. However, you are still encouraged to take the following recommendations:
isolate at home for 14 days and limit contact with others using a mask if you have to interact with others cover mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing with tissue then throwing in the trash or closing with elbows always keep hands clean by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with a hand sanitizer, do not touch your nose, mouth and eyes before washing your hands. It is also recommended to do independent handling with adequate rest, multiply water consumption, avoid exposure to dust and other air pollution, avoid smoking, and consume paracetamol if you experience headache.If the symptoms do not improve for more than 2 weeks or if accompanied by a high fever (38 C or more), please immediately check with the nearest general practitioner so that the doctor can do an examination including blood tests and X-rays to determine the cause. However, if you experience shortness of breath (fast and short breaths) especially those that are heavy, please immediately visit the emergency room of the nearest hospital.
I hope this helps.
