Cough, Runny Nose And Sore Throat, Is It Flu Or Corona Virus?
Good night dock, excuse me. I am 22 years old. I experienced a mild cough, runny nose and mild sore throat. My body temperature is not high. Sometimes also feel dizzy. But I have no history of traveling out of town or abroad. Are these symptoms including the common cold or due to corona virus? Thank you dock.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. At first, the suspicion of the corona virus was only addressed to those who had a history of traveling abroad, as well as having symptoms such as fever, coughing and spasms.
But over time, with the outbreak of this virus and many infected locally, consideration of a history of traveling abroad is no longer important. Likewise with the symptoms, initially it was more directed to coughing, fever and tightness, but now many people have found positive corona even though the symptoms are only strep throat or painful swallowing, diarrhea, or even no symptoms at all. So that, the screening of symptoms is tightened again, every one who has symptoms of respiratory tract infections, be it coughs, colds, painful swallowing, nasal congestion, tightness, are all categorized as people who should be suspected of being exposed to the corona virus. Consideration like this is because it is better to suspect someone is infected with corona when it is not, rather than consider it uninfected even though it is.
So in essence, we cannot determine whether you have corona or not, without conducting direct inspection and supervision on you. On the other hand, everyone is advised not to leave the house, let alone go to the hospital when there is no important need. So our advice to you, try you value your own body. If you think the symptoms are still mild, rest at home, isolate yourself and do not leave the house if there is no urgent need. Wash your hands regularly, multiply the consumption of fruits and vegetables, and consume multivitamins and supplements to increase endurance.
But if you are worried or the complaints are burdensome, consult your doctor immediately to be ascertained through a series of historical excavations, physical examination and support if deemed necessary. The handling that you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection. So, hopefully answering your question.
