My child is 35 months 2 weeks old, already on the third day of a cold accompanied by a cough due to blocked mucus (cough is rare, only when the mucus collects), fever 38.2-38.5 only in the afternoon-early morning. Morning to evening the fever subsided. Have taken Paracetamol and Rhinos syrup. I live in a city that was only announced two days ago by the COVID19 KLB because there were already COVID19 patients who died. Previously we visited the area where the patient was positive for COVID19, but did not contact people suspected of being positive for COVID19. My child likes greetings with adults and is kissed. Do I have to calculate the risk of COVID19? When should I see a doctor?

Hello Fathiya,

Thank you for the question.

In most cases, people affected with COVID-19 show symptoms similar to those of upper respiratory tract infections, and usually symptoms that appear quite mild, such as colds and colds, and these mild symptoms usually appear in young people and children and do not have additional illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, etc. In a small number of cases, people affected with COVID-19 can show severe symptoms, such as shortness of breath.

It is difficult to distinguish between COVID-19 infection and the common cold or cough cold, but the most important thing is the presence or absence of exposure to the COVID-19 virus, such as traveling to a country affected by the virus, making contact with people who travel to the country , or make contact with people who are positive for COVID-19. If your child has visited an area where a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 is available, you can report to the nearest health care facility for further action.

For a while your child should not travel first, improve personal hygiene and also family, and do not greet or be kissed by others.

Hopefully this information can help and hope that children recover quickly.

Regards.
