Hello anachin, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Responding to your question, up to now patients who have been positively infected with the Corona virus have been done with a throat swab examination, the results of which have been sent to several relevant agencies in Indonesia, so far there have been 12 places authorized. For whom it is examined, so far it cannot be done in general, alias only people who have complaints that lead, or people with a history of contact with patients confirmed, and for payment guaranteed by BPJS, based on the information of the Republic of Indonesia's health minister from the official website of the Ministry of Communication and Information. However, if you are in good health, or if you have only a mild complaint, you cannot suddenly come to the hospital asking to have a throat swab checked for corona virus infection.
But now there is already a discourse to conduct a mass examination covid-19 with a rapid test, which will be carried out in Indonesia, especially regions with the most covid cases. So for you, you should know first, some of the signs and symptoms of co-19, and the risk factors themselves. For more details, you can do an initial screening geratis using this website, Check the risk of corona virus infection.
Apart from that some things you can do right now are:
Don't panic. Use a mask if you are symptomatic. Wash hands, before and after activities. Especially before eating. Do self-isolating / isolate yourself if there are symptoms of mild symptoms such as cough, runny nose, sneezing, mild fever, etc. Avoid traveling to crowded places for a while. Do social distancing or maintain a distance of at least 1 meter when interacting with others. Evaluate complaints when fever arises> 38,5'C, cough, and shortness of breath immediately to the hospital. That's all for me, thank you very much :)
