Thank you for your question on Alodoker.
Discussing about the rise of the corona virus novel or often called COVID-19, I will try to explain briefly, what is COVID-19.
COVID-19 is a disease caused by the Corona virus which has the same cause as MERS and SARS. This virus attacks the respiratory tract, and can be transmitted through droplets or through the saliva splashing of the sick.
COVID has symptoms almost the same as flu, namely sore throat, cough, fever, and flu. What distinguishes from COVID is shortness of breath. In patients with COVID will have difficulty breathing. Basically COVID will last 1 day at 30 degrees with 90% humidity and will last 1 month at 4 degrees with 20% humidity.
Prevention of corona virus transmission, including washing hands using soap after activities outside, do not touch the face, especially the mouth, nose and eyes because the virus can enter through the limbs, improve endurance by drinking multivitamins, drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day, and avoid the oaring crowd, because no one knows who is experiencing the pain.
Based on the complaints you mentioned, that you only experience a cold because of stimulation of foreign objects or water that enters the nose. For colds themselves are not a major symptom for corona. Therefore, simply improve your body's immune system with a multivitamin.
