Hello Tiara, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
At present Indonesia is being horrendous with a covid-19 infection. Not only in Indonesia, the world today is still fighting the virus. WHO itself has set the status of the infection into a pandemic. Panic arises in Indonesian society, as you are experiencing right now.
Responding to the questions you give, the main signs and symptoms of Covid-19 infection itself are fever> 38'c, cough, and shortness of breath. But in some cases not all of these symptoms appear. For this reason, you should do self-isolation, or quarantine yourself at home by not leaving the house at least until the complaint that you feel disappears. The purpose of doing this is in addition to minimizing the possibility of the spread of covid-19, also if you are not currently infected with covid-19, but clearly your immune condition decreases so that it is easy to become infected if you come into contact with an infected person. I cannot guarantee that you are not infected with covid-19 because the contact history is currently very difficult to determine or know about, but the symptoms you feel are more inclined to some diseases such as:
Common cold. Flu. ARI. But still some of the diseases above can also be contagious. For that, some things you can do are:
Do not panic. Use a mask even at home, because some of the diseases above can also be contagious. Get enough rest, and eat nutritious foods to increase immunity. Do self-isolating as well as for 14 days, or at least until the complaint that you feel gets better. If your complaints are heavy, such as fever arising again> 38.5'C, coughing, and shortness of breath immediately to the hospital. Avoid smoking, and alcohol consumption because it can reduce your body's immunity. Wash hands before and after activities, especially before eating. That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
