Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically COVID-19 disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus infection is a newly discovered disease and until now there is no cure for COVID-19 disease, nor is the vaccine for this virus. So far, the drugs that are available and given to people with severe COVID-19 are experimental drugs whose effectiveness and safety are still unknown.
Because of the unavailability of drugs or vaccines for this disease, preventing the spread of this disease is the best thing that can be done. The following are some disease prevention steps that you and those around you can take:
Stay at home and only leave the house if forced to
Avoid going to crowded and crowded places, avoid using public transportation if you have to go outside the house
Keep a safe distance from other people (at least 1.8-2 meters), avoid direct contact with others (such as shaking hands, kissing hands, hugging, kissing on the cheek, etc.)
Wash your hands with soap as often as possible (rub for at least 20 seconds), or use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if there is no handwashing area available
Avoid touching your face with your hands that have not been washed
Do the correct cough and sneeze etiquette (Cover the mouth and nose with the inside of the elbow)
Take care of your health and endurance by sleeping and getting enough rest, eating and drinking enough, still doing sports at home, and not smoking.
The use of medical masks is not recommended (due to very limited numbers), but you can use other masks such as cloth masks or masks that you make yourself
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
