Hello Sego Tepong, Thank you for the question.
Corona virus can cause flu-like symptoms such as cough, pielk, sore throat, fever, shortness of breath, chest pain, headache. Of the cases that exist this dive, symptoms generally include coughing, high fever (38 C or more), and shortness of breath. Symptoms appear within 2-14 days after a person is exposed to viru corona. This virus can be transmitted by inhaling coughing or sneezing from patients, touching their nose, mouth and eyes after touching objects contaminated with the corona virus, and close contact with patients. If you have these symptoms and have a history of traveling to another country with a corona virus case or there is contact / interaction with people who have symptoms of a cold cough and are suspected of being positive or infected with the corona virus in the past 2 weeks, then your risk of being infected with the corona virus is high. However, if you have mild symptoms and don't have a travel history or contact with other people mentioned above, then your risk of corona virus infection is low. Your symptoms can also be caused by flu or bronchitis.
If you experience shortness of breath (fast and short breaths) that are heavy, this condition is a condition that requires immediate treatment so you are advised to immediately visit the emergency room of the nearest hospital. Make sure you call the hospital emergency room first so that the medical officer in charge can prepare to take certain precautions.
However, if you experience mild symptoms, you are advised to do independent treatment at home with:
do not leave the house for 14 days and be in a separate room from others who live in the same house always keep hands clean by washing hands with soap and clean water or if there is no soap and water please use hand sanitizer do not touch the nose, mouth, or eyes before washing limit hand contact or interaction with others, wear a mask if you have to interact with other people get used to close the mouth and nose if coughing or sneezing with a tissue which is then immediately thrown into the trash or use the inside of the arm multiply rest, multiply the consumption of nutritious food, and multiply consumption of water Hope it helps.
