Pain When Coughing With Flu And Nasal Mucus?
I already have a cold and runny flu, and if I cough a bit, what does it include from the corona virus?
Thank you for the question.
Nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, and pain in the throat generally indicate an inflamed respiratory tract, such as an infection. There are various types of infections that can cause inflammation in the airways, not only corona virus, but also adenovirus, influenza, streptococcus, staphylococcus, and so on. In addition to infections, inflammation in the respiratory tract can also occur related to allergies, foreign body aspiration, irritation, immune disorders, and many other health problems.
Indeed, today, the spread of the corona virus in various countries often triggers its own concerns. But so far, no disease has been reported in Indonesia. Therefore, before answering your question, it is important to clarify a few things, namely:
Where do you currently live? Is China or another country where Corona infection has been found? Have you traveled to Wuhan, or other areas in China?
