Examination Of The Possibility Of Corona Although There Are No Symptoms
Hello, doc, can a good person check that he has Covid 19 or not?
Hello Rifky, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
COVID-19 is a Corona Virus Infection Disease caused by the Corona virus. Symptoms caused are symptoms such as mild flu, namely fever, cough, runny nose, to severe symptoms such as pneumonia, namely coughing, fever accompanied by tightness. This virus can affect anyone, both children, pregnant women, nursing mothers, adults, and the elderly.
To date (21-March 2020) the number of COVID-19 positive patients in Indonesia is 369 people, with 32 deaths and 17 people recovering. This virus is a new virus that has a very easy nature to infect its host. Transmission through droplets or saliva splashes of sick patients and then infect healthy people. The virus enters through the mouth, nose, or eyes from virud-contaminated hands and accidentally holds the face area. But basically this virus is still in the research stage to find out exactly how it can spread and infect humans, because there is speculation from some researchers that the spread is through the air. It is estimated that the virus in the air can last up to 3 hours.
Until now the government is still trying to have a rapid rapid test for the examination of the corona virus for all Indonesian people. But it is not yet known when a rapid test can be performed. Corona virus examination itself until now only in referral hospitals and selected laboratories, not all health facilities can do early detection of corona virus infection
What we can do with all our might right now is good prevention. Namely by carrying out a healthy lifestyle, eating nutritious food, drinking 8 glasses of water per day, taking multivitamins to increase endurance, if possible stay home and do social distancing to prevent transmission of corona virus infection.
