Sorry doc want to ask distinguish dry cough, the common cold and dry cough covid flu what do you do, many do not know which symptoms covid and which symptoms are normal

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically, most people who experience COVID-19 only show mild symptoms that usually consist of fever and dry cough. Nevertheless, there are also people who experience coughing with phlegm, body feels weak, shortness of breath (mild to very severe), muscle and joint pain, muscle aches, headaches, and some can even experience nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. However, the symptoms of colds are very rarely found in this disease, if any, it usually occurs in children.


Indeed, the only way to distinguish whether airway symptoms are experienced is a corona virus infection (COVID-19 disease) or an ordinary respiratory tract virus infection is to use the COVID-19 test (the most effective way is to look for the presence or absence of viral RNA with PCR). However, to date COVID-19 examination in Indonesia is still very limited so that not everyone with symptoms of respiratory tract infections can get this examination. Examination can only be given to people who have clearly had contact with sufferers of COVID-19 and also people who have clear symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath). People who have symptoms of respiratory tract infections (such as just coughing, just having a cold, or experiencing coughing up phlegm only, will only be advised to do self-isolation at home.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
