Hello Yusuf, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I will try to help explain.
Bronchitis is an inflammation that occurs in the bronchi (one part of the airways), which is caused by viruses or bacteria. Symptoms experienced include:
cough with phlegm,
fever (usually mild)
out of breath,
As for the corona virus or covid-19 is a viral infection that attacks the upper respiratory tract, the symptoms of the corona virus also almost resemble other respiratory infections, such as:
out of breath
history of travel to areas affected by corona virus outbreaks
or make contact with people who have contracted the corona virus
To distinguish corona virus from other respiratory diseases, it is necessary to do a physical examination by a doctor and additional supporting examinations such as blood tests, throat swaps or x-rays. Symptoms that you experience such as difficulty breathing but not a fever or cough can be caused by anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorders also cause difficulty or difficulty breathing, sweating, heart beating fast.
You don't need to worry, just stay at home, avoid contact with others for a while, use a mouth cover if sneezing or coughing, always wash your hands before eating and before touching your mouth, or eyes.
But, if complaints such as high fever, coughing, sore throat, shortness of breath, immediately take it to the nearest hospital to get further treatment.
Hopefully can help. thanks.
