Thank you for the question.
Covid-19 is a disease caused by coronavirus. This disease usually attacks the respiratory tract so that it can cause symptoms such as sore throat, cough, runny nose, which is accompanied by fever. In some cases, symptoms are found such as nausea and vomiting, but these symptoms are relatively rare and are not the main symptoms felt by people with covid-19, so you don't need to worry.
The following are other causes that can cause symptoms of nausea and vomiting:
Food absorption disorders.
The following things you can do to reduce symptoms:
Eat frequently but little by little, and eat slowly.
Reducing foods that contain lots of gas, acid, spicy, oils like fried foods and coconut milk, contain soda, and caffeine such as coffee, tea, chocolate.
Avoid lying down after eating.
Adequate nutritional and fluid needs of at least 2-3 liters per day.
Regular exercise and sleep 7-9 hours per day.
Manage stress well.
In addition, the best thing to prevent covid-19 is not to leave the house for the next 14 days, diligently washing hands with water and soap or sanitizer, and diligently cleaning equipment that is often touched by hands.
Hope this information helps.
