Hello Tari,

Thank you for the question.

Covid-19 is a disease caused by a coronavirus infection which usually causes symptoms of respiratory disorders such as fever (body temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius) accompanied by coughing colds, sore throat, and shortness of breath in some advanced cases. However, if you experience the above symptoms, it is not certain that you will suffer from this disease, because there are so many other diseases that can cause the symptoms that you mention such as:

Common cold.
Sore throat.
Inflammation of the vocal cords.

In general, the above diseases, including covid-19, are caused by a viral infection that can resolve on its own within 1 week without special treatment. In addition, in covid-19, there is a need for a history of traveling abroad or in a domestic area that is endemic covid-19, or direct contact with patients who are positive for covid-19 as a diagnostic criterion for this disease.

For now, the most effective step to prevent this disease is to stay at home in the next 14 days, and do tips like:

Wash your hands regularly and correctly with water and soap or sanitizer.

Avoid touching the face with your hands.
Doing a good and right coughing and sneezing ethic.
Clean the furniture that is often used and the environment.
Avoid going out and going to crowded places.
Avoid direct contact with others or social distancing by staying at home for 14 days.
Maintaining immunity, can by taking immune supplements.

Hopefully this information can help and hopefully get well soon.
