Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the main symptoms of corona virus infection are fever and dry cough. Shortness of breath can also be found in severe infections. You should try to remember whether there is a history of traveling to affected countries for the past 14 days, or whether you have contact with people who have recently returned from affected countries, or whether you have contact with people who are known to be positively infected with the corona virus. If you have the risk of exposure like that, then you have the possibility of being infected with the corona virus. You should try to contact 119 ext 9 to find out more about the flow of corona virus testing in your area.
If you have no risk of exposure, you are advised to isolate yourself at home. Do not go outside unless very, very forced. If there are other people who live in your house, make sure you always use a mask also in the house, you have to sleep in your own room (can not sleep with other people), you can not eat from one plate with other people and can not use cutlery with other people. Make sure you wash your hands frequently (also recommend your housemates to do the same) and do the proper ethics of coughing and sneezing (cover your mouth and nose with the inside of your elbows). Also pay attention to keep a distance with the people around you (minimum 1.8-2 meters). If during your isolation you feel your symptoms are getting worse and your shortness of breath also feels heavy, call 119 ext 9 to find out the next step of the examination.
