Corona virus is a virus that can infect humans and cause mild to severe airway disease, and can even cause death. Infectious diseases caused by the Corona virus are called COVID-19.
Patients will experience symptoms of high fever (ie more than 38 degrees Celsius) and airway disorders, including coughing, colds, sore throat and shortness of breath. In addition to the appearance of symptoms, both mild and severe life-threatening symptoms, patients infected with this virus can also be asymptomatic. So, maybe your complaint is a symptom of this disease. However, do not rule out the possibility of other things, such as irritation (due to pollution or cigarette smoke), allergies (dust, pollen or animal hair) or other bacterial infections.
Corona virus is transmitted through droplets originating from sparks when coughing or sneezing. This droplet can directly hit the face of a healthy person, causing the person to become sick. Mouth, nose and eyes are the entry points. In addition, a droplet that attaches to the surface of an object, if the object is held by a healthy person, then the contact hand holds the area around the mouth, nose and eyes, it can cause the healthy person to become infected. If the body's immune system is good, the symptoms may not appear or only mild symptoms appear. However, this person can still transmit the virus to other people. And if a person's immunity is low, it will cause symptoms of moderate to severe disease, even cause death.
Therefore, it is necessary to prevent the spread and control of this disease. You can do this by:
1. Isolate themselves independently at home. Use your special room that has adequate lighting and air ventilation.
2. Report your case to local medical personnel by telephone. The doctor will explore your health and disease information at this time. Then the doctor will provide treatment that you can live.
3. Always use a mask, may mask cloth if you don't have a surgical mask.
4. Using cutlery and bathing yourself.
5. Do the ethics of coughing and sneezing correctly. Namely by closing the nose and mouth using the upper arm in the hand or tissue that has been coated before tissue. Tisue must be immediately disposed of in a closed trash can.
6. Avoid physical contact with other people by positioning themselves as far as at least 1 m from other people.
7. Diligently wash your hands using soap and running water for at least 20 seconds or use alcohol-based hand sanitizers for at least 60 percent.
Thus hopefully useful.
