How To Distinguish Fever, Flu And Ordinary Shortness Of Breath With Corona Virus Symptoms
I want to ask, aren’t the symptoms of corona flu, fever, and tightness? Well I have asthma. How to distinguish? Thank you
Hello Dika, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Covid 19 infection or corona virus is currently becoming a worldwide concern due to its rapid spread, so that the WHO has now determined covid 19 infection to be a pandemic. At present in Indonesia alone co 19 cases have been found themselves and cause a variety of panic residents, especially citizens of Jakarta today.
Covid 19 is transmitted through droplets or droplets of the sufferers so that, people with complaints such as coughing, must wear a mask, to minimize transmission of the virus. The symptoms you need to be aware of regarding covid 19 infection are high fever> 38'C, cough, accompanied by shortness of breath. Respond to your question if you have bronchial asthma, the difference lies in the fever, and the cough itself. Asthma is usually not accompanied by fever.
Covid 19 is actually not very deadly, but what is dangerous is its extremely fast spread, which can lead to high morbidity rates. Covid 19 itself will be more dangerous with someone who previously has a history of diseases such as heart failure, kidney failure, or other diseases because it can aggravate the condition. Whereas in you the condition of asthma will definitely aggravate the symptoms of shortness of breath itself.
But you don't need to worry too much, you have to stay calm. At the moment some things you can do are:
Get enough rest, and keep your diet regularly to keep your body's immunity fit. Washing hands before, or after doing activities, especially before eating because the droplet can stick to the hands, and if entered into the mouth and inhaled into the respiratory tract, will cause infection. Avoid traveling to crowded places for a while if there really is no need. Avoid excessive panic such as buying a mask at a very high price, buying up all the semako, etc. it will make you and others lose because the more scarce the material the higher the price will be. Use a mask if you are sick. Drink 2L of water per day, and keep the mouth moist. That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
