Cough With Phlegm, Runny Nose, Nasal Congestion, And Shortness Of Breath Is Corona?
My doc has had a cold this week: cough with phlegm, runny nose, stuffy nose but no fever. And these 2 days I started to shortness of breath but I don’t know shortness of breath due to nasal congestion or because of what. I went to the clinic and was given a cough medicine, vitamins and fever-lowering, but if it is still short in two days, I was asked to go to the corona referral hospital. How should I dock?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. So far, the handling and direction you received has been quite right. This is because corona virus infection does not have specific symptoms that other diseases do not have. Symptoms experienced by sufferers of corona such as fever, cough, spasms, colds, nasal congestion, dizziness and headaches are also owned by a number of other diseases such as influenza infections, strep throat, upper respiratory infections, nasal inflammation or rhinitis, allergies and much more.
Therefore, doctors need to provide general treatment first because corona infection also cannot be diagnosed quickly. If it turns out that you experience only a simple mild infection, the drug will be enough to deal with you and you do not need to get further treatment. You are not hospitalized because the majority of hospitals are busy with patients who really suspect corona infection. The hospital is also one of the places with a high infection rate, and if it is not really necessary, everyone is not recommended to go to the hospital.
But if it does not improve, then corona suspicion increases and special attention is needed. That is why the recommendation is that you should go to a referral hospital for corona. In essence, these steps are appropriate and you should obey your doctor's recommendations.
Meanwhile, maintain your immune system by not leaving the house, focus on your rest, take permission from your office or college to recover at home, consume foods high in nutrients such as vegetables and fruit, consume multivitamins and supplements, eat and drink warm, regular drug consumption as directed, and routine hand washing. So, hopefully answering your question.
