1 Answer:

Hello Arfan,

Covid-19 (corona virus disease) is a disease caused by infection with SARS-CoV-2 (a new strain of corona virus). Covid-19 is transmitted through:

Respiratory droplet when Covid-19 patient coughs / sneezes / breathes heavily / speaks loudly which is then inhaled / inhaled into someone else's respiratory tract
Surface of objects contaminated by droplets, then touched with hands, then hands touch the mucosa (mucous membranes) of nose, mouth, eyes

The symptom found in almost 90% of Covid-19 positive patients is fever> 38 degrees Celsius. Other symptoms that are found in many patients are cough, sore throat, excessive tiredness, joint and muscle aches. Some patients also complain of anosmia (disturbing smell / smell), red eyes, rashes on the skin.

The diagnosis of Covid-19 was confirmed by the results of RT-PCR supporting examinations of throat swab samples. Other investigations that can help are the Covid-19 rapid test, chest x-ray, chest CT scan, other blood laboratory tests.

Covid-19 transmission can be limited by:

Physical distancing
Diligent washing hands with running water + soap
Do not touch the face with unwashed hands
Wear a mask when you cough or when you go out of the house
Practice the correct cough ethic:
Wear a mask. Masks should only be worn for several hours, replace immediately if they are wet. Disposable masks must be immediately thrown in the trash, cloth masks need to be washed with detergent.
Cover nose and mouth with a tissue and then quickly throw it into the trash, then wash your hands with running water + soap
If there is no mask / tissue, cover your nose and mouth when coughing using your inner arm

Apply clean and healthy behavior

Someone who has symptoms of fever and / or one of the respiratory symptoms (cough, runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath) + in the last 14 days there is a history of close contact with positive / suspected sufferers Covid-19 or living in the red zone / traveling to the zone area red / local transmission + symptoms cannot be explained with the diagnosis of other diseases, it is necessary to call the 119 ext 9 or 112 hotline immediately or any other Covid-19 hotline provided by the local government. If possible, come for a check-up at a health facility (stick to the precautionary measures to prevent the transmission of Covid-19 so as not to infect or infect others).

Covid-19 disease is a self limiting disease, which means it can heal on its own because of the patient's immunity. There is no specific drug for Covid-19, the drug given is useful to relieve symptoms and help speed healing. In healthy young adults, death from Covid-19 is low, but in older people, patients with chronic diseases, patients with impaired immunity, the death rate can reach 50%.

When at home, read more complete information about Covid-19 on trusted sites such as WHO, CDC, the website of the Indonesian Ministry of Health specifically Covid-19.

Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
