1 Answer:

Hello Roland,


Thank you for the question.

Corona virus has many types, including one that is currently endemic, namely SARS-CoV-2 which causes COVID-19 disease (Corona virus disease 2019). Corona virus enters through the respiratory tract, which is when you inhale a droplet (for example, a respiratory tract splash), for example when it coughs, sneezes, spits, speaks loudly, shakes hands, and even exchanges personal items contaminated with droplets (for example, elevator buttons, door handles, tableware and drinking).


After entering the body, the Corona virus will stimulate the immune system to release symptoms of inflammation, for example fever, muscle and joint pain, coughing, runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, sore throat, weakness, fatigue, easy fatigue, lack of appetite, tightness breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and so on. The time needed from the virus entering the body to the appearance of various symptoms of inflammation can vary, depending on the response of each person's immune system, can be fast, can also be slow. However, based on diverse literature, this time span often ranges from 2 to 14 days (average 5-6 days).


In addition to the different onset of symptoms, the severity of symptoms that occur in each person can also be different. In people with good endurance and are less sensitive to complaints, it may also not appear any meaningful complaints. Conversely, in the elderly or people with poor immune system, symptoms of the disease that appears can be very severe, even deadly.


Hope this helps ...
