Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Corona virus infection, also known as COVID-19, is an epidemic that has spread throughout the world including Indonesia in recent weeks. This infection is dangerous because it can cause death, transmission is fast, and not easily distinguished from the usual symptoms of the disease.
Among the symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough and shortness of breath. But it can also be strep throat, diarrhea, or even no symptoms at all in those whose immune systems are good, but still can transmit the virus to other people.
Because it is difficult to diagnose, the terms appear in the monitoring (suspect) and the patient under surveillance (suspect). Because it often takes some time until the test results come out and someone is stated positive or negative corona. Therefore regarding your condition, we cannot state whether what you are experiencing is related to COVID-19 or not, and is dangerous or not. Because even people who look healthy can be corona positive.
Therefore, we recommend that you try to assess your condition. If you feel the complaint is severe, immediately consult a pulmonary doctor to get further tests. But if you think ordinary and mild, do independent isolation at home, routine hand washing, consumption of supplements and multivitamins to increase endurance, consumption of foods and warm drinks to reduce coughing, avoid sweet foods and drinks because it can trigger mucus that makes the throat itch, and may consume over-the-counter cough medicines by reading the rules of use listed. So, hopefully answering your question.
