Is It Possible To Get Corona If You Don’t Feel Any Symptoms?
Hello doctor, I have a history of travel by train, at that time the train passengers were congested. Coincidentally, there was a child who did not wear a mask sitting in front of my bench, he coughed violently and sneezed but did not have a fever (because before riding the train, he had checked his body temperature). Since then I was like parno myself. Indeed I wore a mask and after the child got off the train I immediately sprayed my body with the antiseptic that I was carrying. Until now I do self-quarantine and it’s Day 12, I have no sign of coughing, fever, and tightness … but I feel in my throat like phlegm but it doesn’t feel itchy and doesn’t make a cough (swallowing is also normal) but I can’t take it out. During self-quarantine, I perform preventive measures such as regular consumption of vitamins and brew drinks from ginger, curcuma, lemongrass, and honey. In fact, I was more afraid if I became a carrier for this disease
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. But indeed, one of the reasons that makes COVID-19 dangerous is because someone can carry the virus unwittingly and transmit it to vulnerable populations such as children, the elderly, and people with low immune systems.
In your case, the actions you have taken so far have been right, even with the virus epidemic everywhere now, without even having to meet people who show symptoms of COVID we have the potential to become infected. So even if you don't meet the child, you also have to isolate yourself. This is because indeed, people who are healthy and do not have any symptoms can actually be positive for COVID.
Likewise, regarding your condition, for this reason, we cannot determine whether you have COVID or not without a supporting examination. Complaints feel phlegm in the throat is not a specific symptom of COVID but does not need specific symptoms to be positive for COVID. So the best advice you can do is keep isolating yourself, wash your hands regularly, maintain endurance by exercising regularly, taking multivitamins and supplements, avoiding cigarettes, and getting enough rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
