1 Answer:

Hi Adi,


Thank you for the question.

Need to understand a few things beforehand;


First, COVID-19, or the designation for respiratory tract infections by the Corona virus, the diagnosis is not easy. Not only evaluating clinical symptoms that arise, the diagnosis related to COVID-19 also needs to be made by investigations, such as x-rays, blood tests, sputum tests, and tissue swabs in the throat. So, if a new patient experiences symptoms similar to COVID-19, such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, and so on, it is not certain whether he has COVID-19 or not, if he has not seen a doctor directly.


Second, if it is true that the diagnosis of COVID-19 in a patient has been established, then by regulation, the government will isolate the person to get treatment until it is declared healed completely. With this isolation, transmission of disease from sufferers to other people around them can be minimized.


Third, if there really are residents of your house who experience COVID-19, then what you need to do to prevent transmission is:

Go directly to the doctor for treatment and isolation
Improve personal hygiene, including bathing diligently, washing hands with antiseptic soap, cutting nails regularly, changing clothes every day
Also improve the cleanliness of the environment of your home, i.e. by changing curtains and bed linen on a regular basis, vacuum floors and furniture that are vulnerable to virus contamination, improve lighting and air circulation in your home
Do not carelessly exchange personal belongings with sufferers, including toiletries, food, clothing, and so on
Increase endurance, by eating a variety of balanced nutritious foods, eating lots of fruit, regularly exercising, and getting enough rest
Do not smoke
Use a mask, especially when in contact with sufferers

If you have symptoms similar to COVID-19, you should also see a doctor or an internist so that the cause of your symptoms can be identified and treated properly.


Hope this helps ...
