Coughing And Sneezing Accompanied By Runny Nose, What Are The Symptoms Of Corona Virus?
Hello Aynazz, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading the complaints experienced by your friends, these complaints can indeed be caused by COVID-19, but can also be caused by other conditions such as common cold, flu, ARI, sinusitis, sore throat, or inflammation of the tonsils.
Because the symptoms of COVID-19 can closely mimic other conditions and the only way to distinguish is by conducting a special examination to detect someone infected with Corona virus or not, it is highly recommended to consult a doctor directly.
After the examination by a doctor, only can be determined what should be done by your friend, whether he needs further COVID-19 examination or not in a referral hospital and what therapy should be given.
In the meantime, there are a number of things that your friend recommends to do such as:
Remain at home for at least 14 days since complaints appear as directed by the government and only go out to see a doctor alone without traveling or stop by other places before or after from the doctor. Wear a mask even when you are at home. Do ethics cough and sneeze properly. as recommended by WHO / Ministry of Health Dispose of phlegm only in places that are open and can drain the phlegm directly into the drainage such as in the toilet Routinely washing hands with water and soap Avoiding close contact with others including family members, give a minimum distance of 1 meters from other people Avoid sharing any food / drinks / personal equipment with others including family members Can take commercially available stone-flu medicines until further advice from the doctor who checks your friends Try not to receive visits from anyone and you nor is it recommended visit your friends Make sure your room and home air ventilation is good your friends Maintain adequate and balanced nutritious food intake every day Increase intake of vegetables and fruit Maintain fluid intake of at least 2 liters a day Perform regular exercise at least 30 minutes every day Get enough rest at least 6- 8 hours a day Hope it helps.
