Is It Safe To Live With The Patient Under Covid Supervision 19?
Hi doc, I want to ask. My husband was declared suspect with mild pneumonia symptoms, if I and my child still live at home with my husband. Is it safe?

Many terms that appear related to COVID-19 disease. COVID-19 is a respiratory infection caused by a new type of Corona virus, namely severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). One of these terms is suspect (a patient under surveillance), that is someone who has symptoms of fever and airway disorders (such as coughs, colds and shortness of breath) and there is a history of traveling to the COVID-19 outbreak area in the last 14 days.
People with suspect status with mild symptoms are isolated at home with daily monitoring by local medical personnel. This person must have a separate room, where the main thing is rooms with adequate air ventilation and have windows and doors that can be opened to help access air exchange and room lighting. Tableware and toiletries must also be separated from other housemates. In the part of the room that is often held, such as door algae, periodically disinfectant is carried out. Other housemates can stay in the house, but suspect must wear a mask, perform ethical coughing / sneezing, routinely wash hands properly and maintain a minimum distance of 1 m. While other family members can use masks too, routinely wash hands properly and stay home (go out if necessary). If there are complaints, family members must immediately report to the nearest health worker, so that it can be followed up immediately.
Thus hopefully useful.
