Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
COVID-19 is a respiratory infection caused by the corona virus. Corona virus can be transmitted through droplets or saliva and enter the body through the mouth, nose and eyes. COVID19 can last a long time in cooler room temperatures and can die in hot room temperatures.
Covid19 has mild, moderate to severe symptoms, namely dry cough, sore throat, fever above 37.5 and also shortness of breath. Some people are accompanied by symptoms of diarrhea. In general covid19 has a low mortality rate, severe symptoms will usually occur in people who have a decreased immune system including: diabetes, hypertension and HIV
Chest pain is not included in the symptoms of Covid19, chest pain that you are experiencing can be caused by several causes including an increase in stomach acid which irritates the esophagus, heart disease, and also other lung diseases. To establish a diagnosis, it is necessary to do a direct physical examination and other supporting examinations.
You can make lifestyle changes to reduce symptoms, including: resting regularly, managing stress well, eating regularly, avoiding eating spicy, sour, noodle and coffee. If the complaint does not subside and greatly interferes with activities, you can see a doctor. It's just that, if it's not too emergency it's better to stay at home and do isolation for 14 days or more to prevent the spread of the corona virus. Don't forget to always wash your hands when doing activities, don't touch your face if you haven't washed your hands, take a multivitamin, get enough rest.
