Hello Kyara, Thank you for the question.
Do you mean by sumer body is fever? Fever is a body temperature that reaches above 37.2 degrees Celsius when measured with a thermometer in the armpit. In general, fever occurs if there is an infection that attacks the body. Usually the symptoms of fever are accompanied by other symptoms depending on where the infection is located, such as cough, runny nose, sore throat, stomach ache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea / constipation, skin rash, and others. Some causes of fever such as flu, bronchitis, pneumonia, dengue fever, typhus.
If you are worried about a corona virus infection, first you need to know if you have the risk. Symptoms of the corona virus resemble those of the flu, which are cough, runny nose, fever, shortness of breath, chest pain, sore throat, headache, fatigue. However, the general symptoms are cough, high fever (38 C or more), and shortness of breath. Someone is suspected of having this virus infection if they have these symptoms and have a history of having countries with corona virus cases or contact / interactions with people who have cold cough symptoms and are suspected of being positive for corona virus in the last 2 weeks. If you have symptoms of fever and cough, but don't have a history of overseas travel or an unclear contact history, then the chances of getting infected with the corona virus are low. However, indeed you must remain vigilant and take preventative measures.
For now, if symptoms are still mild, no high fever (38 C or more) and there are no other symptoms, you can do independent treatment at home by:
avoid activities outside the home and stay at home for 14 days limit interaction with others always keep your hands clean by washing with soap and clean water or with a hand sanitizer avoiding people who are sick of coughing and colds avoiding grabbing the nose, mouth, and eyes before washing hands measure body temperature with a thermometer regularly multiply the consumption of nutritious foods and multiply the consumption of water enough rest for 7-9 hours every day taking paracetamol in accordance with the rules of use on the drug packaging manage stress well If symptoms of fever still occur up to 3 the next day, or you experience a high fever (38 C or more), please consult your nearest GP. The doctor needs to ask about your symptoms, examine you, and do other tests such as blood tests. After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment. In the midst of the current corona virus pandemic, don't forget when checking yourself you have to be careful to keep your distance from others. always keep your hands clean, and don't touch your face before washing your hands.
I hope this helps.
