Hello Maulana ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Covid 19 or also called the corona virus is a new type of virus that can attack anyone, from newborns, children, adolescents, even though the elderly. This virus infects the respiratory system, symptoms are almost the same as people who suffer from the common cold, complaints can include fever more than 38 degrees Celsius, cough, until in severe cases of difficulty breathing, these symptoms can occur 2-14 days after exposure to the corona virus, therefore an appeal to remain at home, is one way to break the chain of transmission of the virus so that fewer people are exposed to the virus. The way a person can contract this virus is by accidentally inhaling a spark from a cough or sneezing sufferer, accidentally holding the nose, mouth and eyes without washing hands first after contact with sufferers such as shaking hands or touching, close contact with sufferers without using PPE ( personal protective equipment). In the complaint you mentioned, it must be reviewed again, do you have a history of traveling abroad for approximately the last 2 weeks, whether you go or meet with people with the status of suspect or suspect corona virus, if not, then you should still rest at home, while treating complaints that are felt, you can take medication at the pharmacy according to the recommended use of the drug, try to drink warm water as often as possible, because warm water can help relieve the throat and can help reduce itching complaints in your throat, avoid foods such as nuts and spicy that can trigger the throat feels itchy, take vitamins to increase body immunity, and you can do light exercise at home, such as gymnastics. Be diligent in washing your hands after activity and every time you want to hold the face area. Immediately to the doctor, if you feel the complaint does not also improve.
But in a situation where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if it is not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so that you are not exposed to the virus, don't forget to wash your hands especially when you want to hold the face area (eyes, nose and mouth), if there is a complaint such as a sore throat that feels worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by a fever of more than 38 degrees Celsius, a cough, a cold that does not heal despite taking the medicine, until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though it is already try to take medicine, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further tests.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
