Difference Between The Common Cold And Corona Virus Infection
Hello, I was on the first day, only experienced pain in the throat and not so sick just like there was a lump in the throat, on the second day added a little weak and lack of enthusiasm, on the third day (today) new symptoms appeared, namely dizziness, flu, slightly blocked nose, accompanied by symptoms the previous day. What illness are I experiencing? Am I infected by Corono or is it just the common cold?
Hello, thanks for asking for HealthReplies.com
Basically the main symptoms of corona virus infection (or COVID-19 disease) are cough, fever, and shortness of breath. However, shortness of breath is not always felt by people who experience this disease, only in people who experience severe symptoms. Fever is experienced by 98% of people who have COVID-19 disease, so if you don't have a fever once, chances are that you aren't infected with the corona virus. You can further assess your risk of corona virus infection through the following link.
However, if you experience symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections, you are still expected to do self-isolation at home. Avoid going to crowded and crowded places and always use a mask when you interact with others. You are of course still expected to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze using the inside of your upper arm, or if you use a tissue, immediately dispose of the tissue and wash your hands with soap. Hand washing with soap must be done more often to prevent transmission.
If you have a history of traveling to an infected country, have contact with people who have recently traveled to an infected country, or have recently been in contact with someone who is positive for COVID-19, you can try to call 119 ext 9 to further assess your risk and examine if indeed felt necessary.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
