If The Body Is Infected Covid 19

Want to ask Doc what will happen if the body is infected with Covid 19

1 Answer:

Hello Silvina, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.


Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.


Covid 19 infection occurs very quickly and is increasingly widespread. Currently, infected people can cause symptoms and also can be asymptomatic or known as people without symptoms (OTG). If someone is infected with covid 19, they will usually experience an incubation period. This incubation period starts from when the virus enters, develops to cause symptoms. The incubation period for each person varies depending on endurance, with an average of 5-7 days.


After the incubation period, leading to the peak of infection can occur usually on days 7-14 with symptoms such as coughing, high fever above 38 degrees Celsius and accompanied by shortness of breath. This complaint is almost similar to the common cold. But even more suspicious is the history of contact with covid positive people 19, a history of traveling from an infected area etc.


So, if a complaint arises as mentioned earlier, but does not have a life and contact, and the complaint that arises is also not severe you should do self-isolation at home for at least 14 days. Because basically a viral infection is self limiting disease and will heal by itself. Therefore, it is better to take precautions such as:

Wash your hands often with soap before / after doing something.
Use a mask.
Avoid traveling to crowded places if it is not an emergency.
Avoid contact with sick people.
Perform physical distancing / self quarantine for at least 14 days.
Maintain a nutritious and healthy diet, especially eating vegetables and fruit.
Consumption of enough water.
Enough rest.

That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
