Effectiveness Of Antiviral Drugs For First Aid Against Corona Virus
, can antiviral drugs such as acyclovir or methisoprinol be used as first aid to inhibit corona virus infection if symptoms of corona infection begin?
Hello Muhammad Rizky, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Until now there has been no research results that say that the use of the drug acyclovir and methisoprinol can be used for the treatment or prevention of corona virus infection. Drugs and vaccines for this viral infection have not yet been found. Only what can be done is to prevent the spread of this corona virus.
Corona virus infection is actually not deadly. It's just that the spread is so fast that makes people around the world become afraid of the virus. It is said that this corona infection is burdensome for sufferers who have previous comorbidities, or have diseases that decrease endurance such as HIV / AIDS.
If symptoms begin to occur such as corona virus infection, then you should immediately consult the nearest doctor to do a direct examination on the patient, and if it is suspected then other investigations will be carried out. Right now what you can do is preventive measures by:
Use a mask if you have cough or runny nose. Always wash your hands with soap or hand sanitizer before and after doing activities. Avoid touching common objects around. Avoid contact with sick people. Avoid traveling to a crowded place if you don't need it. Enough rest. Maintain a regular and nutritious diet, consume lots of water. Regular exercise. Taking vitamins to increase body resistance. Immediately consult a doctor if you have complaints such as infection with this virus. That's all the answers I can give.
Thank you :)
