Do You Need To Take Supplements During Corona Virus Outbreak?
Good evening, .I am in good health, do I need to take supplements to avoid corona virus? Thank you.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, the Corona virus or COVID-19 can be transmitted directly from person to person through droplets that are released when people suffering from COVID-19 infections cough or sneeze and the droplet is inhaled by healthy people, it can also pass through objects to people if there is droplets containing viruses stick to certain objects (for example on bus / train seats, on door handles, bus handles, elevator buttons, etc.) touched by healthy people, and the person touches the nose, mouth, or face.
Until now COVID-19 infection cases are still very few in Indonesia, so your chances of contracting are also still very small, unless you have a history of traveling to a country that has a lot of this virus (for example China, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Iran, etc.) or have close contact with people who have recently traveled to these countries. To keep you from getting infected with this virus, there are several things you can do:
Wash your hands often, especially if you are just using public facilities. Maintain your immune system by getting enough rest and sleep, avoiding excessive stress, eating healthy and nutritious food in sufficient quantities, drinking enough every day, exercising regularly for at least 30 minutes a day. , do not drink alcohol, and do not use illegal drugs. Avoid going to a country that has a lot of COVID-19 virus. You also don't need to wear a mask when you are healthy. Masks are only recommended for use by people who are sick. If you show symptoms of COVID-19 virus infection and you have a risk of contracting this virus (for example, you have recently traveled to an infected country or have contact with people from an infected country), use a mask always and check yourself into the hospital.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
