Flu After Visiting China, Is The Corona Virus Infection?
Hello, I work as a flight attendant at an Indonesian airline. I just ran the Guangzhou flight schedule yesterday 1-2 February. But after landing back in Bali I suddenly had a severe cold … should I see a doctor?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. News about the corona virus is indeed shocking the world because of the impact it has caused and its ability to infect others. What makes this condition dangerous is because of the death threat it has and the absence of a vaccine that can keep us protected from it.
Regarding your question, we cannot confirm whether you have the corona virus or not because we did not check you directly, and the virus itself is sometimes nonspecific, it can appear as a common cold. But with the potential for contracting the virus, and you also have a history of traveling to related areas, it helps you take this condition seriously. Take leave or sick leave from your work, and check yourself. This is important because as reported, this viral infection can indeed be fatal. So in this case, it's no problem to be more careful, even though it turns out that what you experience later will prove to be just the common cold.
In the meantime, wear a mask and prevent transmission to the people closest to you. Get enough rest, consume foods and warm drinks such as chicken soup and warm tea, take a bath and warm bath, manage stress well, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
