Diarrhea Sufferers Do Co-19 Examination Without Fever
Afternoon, my name is Venia, 25 years old. Today I will check co-19 at one of the hospitals appointed for co-19 handlers. Because I had no direct contact with patients who were stated positive and did not travel abroad I was directed to the MCU (lung X-ray u0026amp; blood check). I go to the office every day or go everywhere always take TJ, so I don’t know whether I have contact or close contact with people who have been stated positive co-19. My symptoms were the same as co-19 symptoms, only I had diarrhea not a high fever, my body temperature was 36.5. My question is whether the results of lung X-rays and blood checks can be concrete without any test of saliva as an explanation of how to check covid-19 in the Hello doctor I read? Thank you and please help🙏

The presence of diarrhea complaints that you feel now and do not feel a fever, the possibility of complaints that you feel is a digestive disorder that can be caused by digestive infections due to contamination of pathogenic microorganisms into the food you consume. This condition can be caused by the consumption of food that is processed, stored or served in a manner that is not hygiene or hygiene and food safety is not well maintained, or because you do not wash your hands before eating, so that dirty or unclean hands contaminate the food you consume. Therefore, the initial step of recovery that you must take is to immediately consult your family doctor for treatment as early as possible to prevent the risk of stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, appetite disorders and dehydration and decreased physical stamina.
Some medical conditions can also trigger diarrhea complaints, such as:
