Fever Accompanied By A Cold Is That A Symptom Of The Corona Virus In Children?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Corona virus infection or known as COVID-19 can have clinical symptoms such as fever (> 38 degrees Celsius) and / or symptoms of respiratory tract infections such as coughing, nasal congestion, sore throat, to shortness of breath. However, these symptoms must be supported by a history of traveling to an area that has a confirmed case / lives in an area with local transmission / contact information with a patient confirmed case of infection. Infection can occur within 2-14 days after exposure. Of course to determine if someone is infected with COVID-19 or not, a complete examination must be done. Ranging from physical examination to other additional tests such as blood tests, chest X-ray images, to CT scans of the chest.
Apart from corona virus infection, symptoms in your child can occur due to other causes such as other viral infections such as the common cold, bacterial infections, allergic reactions, irritation of the respiratory tract, or fatigue.
For that, what you can do right now:
Stay at home and make observations on your child's concessions Give a healthy and nutritious diet, multiply fruits and vegetables Drink plenty of water Teach children to exercise Routine washing hands with soap and running water Avoid traveling outside the area / abroad Use a mask if complaints occur Avoid cigarette exposure Keep on praying and getting closer to God If the child experiences worsening as soon as shortness of breath occurs, you can contact the doctor immediately or call the Ministry of Health hotline at 119 EXT 9.
So, hopefully useful. Stay healthy.
