Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. One method of transmission of the corona virus infection is indeed by coughing. When a person coughs, the virus in his body can come out through droplets or invisible splashes of water which then when exposed to others, can also infect that person. In addition to coughing, sneezing and talking can also have the same effect, therefore the recommendation is to keep a distance of at least 1 meter from anyone, regardless of whether he is coughing and sneezing or not.
Regarding your question, as far as we know about corona virus is that the cough is phlegm cough. So that the person you can meet is corona positive. But don't be mistaken that we should only be on the lookout for people who show symptoms of the corona virus such as the cough you meet. Because, those infected with the corona virus do not have to cough. They may only experience swallowing pain, diarrhea, abdominal pain, or even no symptoms at all. So even if the person you meet doesn't cough, it doesn't mean he is free of corona. He could have been positive, but because of his good endurance, he was not aware that he was positive. In fact, you may actually be corona positive now, but you are unaware.
This is the reason why it is important to conduct self-isolation and social / physical distancing. Because we do not know where the virus is, and who is actually affected. Those who appear healthy may carry the corona virus, and vice versa, which appear sickly may not be due to corona pain. Therefore, do not leave the house if it is not too important. And if you have to leave the house, regardless of whether you meet people you suspect are infected with corona or not, keep your hands clean by washing hands regularly, and maintain endurance by taking supplements and vitamins, adequate rest and consumption of fruits and vegetables. So, hopefully answering your question.
