Hello Nafisa, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Corona virus is a new virus that causes Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19). This virus can infect anyone from young to old and will be more dangerous if it infects the elderly, pregnant women, people with chronic diseases, and people with low immune system. Symptoms of COVID-19 that attack the human respiratory system include symptoms of mild to severe flu such as pneumonia, namely fever, coughing, and shortness of breath.
A person can be infected with corona virus and symptoms appear in various ways:
Accidentally inhale saliva splashes (droplets) from coughing or sneezing with COVID-19 Holds nose or mouth without washing hands first after touching an object affected by a droplet with COVID-19 Contact in close proximity to a person with COVID-19, for example touching, cipika- cipiki, or shaking hands In addition, if you have traveled from abroad and come in contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19, then you have a fever, cough, and shortness of breath, then be aware of corona virus infection. But if you do not feel these symptoms and you do not travel abroad and contact with people suspected of having COVID-19 before, then you are less likely to get COVID-19. According to research, symptoms of COIVD-19 will appear within 2 days to 2 weeks after a person is exposed to the corona virus.
Indeed the symptoms appear similar, but there are differences between the symptoms of COVID-19 with the common cold. In the common cold the symptoms are sneezing, nasal congestion and runny nose, sore throat, headache, coughing and rarely fever. Then in COVID-19, the main symptoms are fever, stones, and shortness of breath. In your friends you can just experience the common cold.
See a doctor immediately if you experience the symptoms of COVID-19 mentioned above. People suspected of being infected with the Corona virus should be immediately examined at the nearest hospital emergency room in order to be given good and proper treatment. Or call the Ministry of Health Hotline for Corona Virus at 021-521411 and 081212123119. In order to increase your immune system, do the following:
Consumption of nutritious and balanced food Increase vegetables and fruit Drink plenty of water, a minimum of 8 glasses per day Frequently wash your hands so that cleanliness is maintained and the risk of transmission of the virus decreases Manage stress Adequate sleep Hopefully helps
