How To Overcome If You Have Been Infected With Corona Virus?
Excuse me … I want to ask yesterday that I have been exposed to the characteristics of being infected with the Corona virus such as colds, sneezing, fever, respiratory problems, and throat. I do not really care because in my opinion it is an ordinary disease, I did not seek treatment and did not see a doctor. I have also read the symptoms of Corona virus if I have been infected with fever usually 2-4 days, I also feel the same thing. And I want to ask if I am really infected with the Corona virus, if it is infected, what should I do and how to overcome it? Please answer, thank you in advance.
