When I finished my trip from Manado, I had a cough and tightness, but I didn’t have a fever, but when I started to enter the airport, I arrived in Makassar wearing a mask, washing my hands and hand sanitizer, but it was still difficult to distinguish between flu and covid disease 19

Hello Aurha,

Thank you for the question.

Coughing and shortness of breath can not only be caused by COVID-19 (a disease caused by a new Corona virus infection), but can also be due to other factors, such as salesma, allergies, viral or other bacterial infections, foreign body aspiration, asthma, bronchitis, acid reflux gastric, gastritis, drug effects, excessive anxiety disorders, congestive heart failure, and so on.

Your history of traveling by plane is indeed a risk of causing you to contract COVID-19. It's just that, judging from the information of you who have been wearing a mask and washing hands regularly, presumably the potential for this transmission can be reduced.

Our advice, if only coughing and mild tightness that you experience, do not panic. Resolve your complaint first by:

 Use a mask Improve personal hygiene and the environment around you Stay away from things that make you allergic, for example cold, dust mites, animal dander, pollen, etc. Improve air circulation in the environment where you are active Do not use physical activity that is tiring Expand to drink warm water Eat also variety of nutritious foods and rich in vitamin C, not greasy, no artificial sweetness, and not too spicy Do not smoke Do not stress or worry too much, so that the tightness is not burdensome However, if the cough and shortness of breath also improve within 1-3 days with the above efforts , we suggest, check yourself directly to the doctor or intern doctor so that you can be clear as to what steps need to be taken to overcome them.

Hope this helps ...
