Hello Ubaidillah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I try to help explain.
Corona virus is a large family of viruses that cause diseases of the respiratory tract, ranging from mild to severe symptoms. The coronavirus novel (2019-nCoV) is a new type of virus that has never been identified before in humans, this virus was first discovered in Wuhan, China. Symptoms of corona virus disease can be colds, coughing and shortness of breath. In severe cases it can cause pneumonia, acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
Symptoms caused by the corona virus are:
3. Shortness of breath
In general, to distinguish corona virus from other diseases such as influenza (flu), Rhinitis is by asking if you have traveled to an area that was infected with corona virus 1 week before, or made contact with people who had tested positive for corona. And additional checks need to be done, such as blood or X-ray examination.
If there are symptoms such as high fever, cough that does not heal, sore throat, shortness of breath, then you can call the health center or the nearest hospital to be picked up and taken to confirm whether or not there is corona.
Some things you can do now are:
1. Avoid activities outside the home and the crowd
2. Use a mask if you are sick,
3. Apply the correct ethics of coughing or sneezing, by covering the mouth with tissue or covering with elbows or upper arms.
4. Increase the consumption of water, fruits and vegetables.
Hope this helps, thank you.
