People Who Are Infected With The Corona Virus Must Everyone Have A High Fever First?
Hello, I want to ask. People who are infected with the corona virus must all people have a high fever first? If for example the symptoms are similar, but not high fever (feels warm) how? Is our antibody not fighting viruses at that time? Because I know the symptoms of body heat is the body’s response (antibodies) when exposed to the virus.

Corona virus infection or also called COVID-19 is a virus that causes acute respiratory infections that are experiencing a pandemic in the world today.
The virus is easily transmitted, through droplets when coughing, sneezing or spattering, which enter directly into the respiratory tract or contact with objects contaminated with the virus, such as shaking hands, touching directly with positive patients or objects in the environment.
Viruses that enter the body require an incubation period of about 14 days. Some recent studies, the incubation period can be faster or slower depending on one's immunity. The incubation period is the time for the proliferation of viruses in the body to cause symptoms. Symptoms that can be caused by this infection include mild fever up to> 38 ° C, muscle aches / aches and fatigue, coughing, sore throat to shortness of breath. Colds and diarrhea are also reported in some sufferers of corona infection.
For patients who have strong immunity, corona virus infection (COVID-19) may not cause significant or mild symptoms such as coughing and colds / flu, or just dizziness, malaise and joint / muscle pain. Although without symptoms, carriers of the virus have the potential to transmit it to others.
Not all people infected with corona virus (COVID-19) experience complaints / symptoms. Some people do not experience symptoms such as fever, even though they are already infected. This can occur if the body's immunity is in good condition and is strong enough to maintain immunity against the virus.
Fever is the body's response to infection. Fever indicates that when the immune system is trying to fight viruses / germs that enter the body. Although only a mild fever, or even have no fever at all, the body's immunity will work automatically to fight viruses, germs or foreign objects that enter the body's tissues. So if someone does not feel the symptoms of an infectious disease, then this indicates that the immune system works quite well in fighting the virus / germ.
Someone who is infected and has low immunity, is susceptible to complications. Complications that can arise from this viral infection are pneumonia, which is a virus capable of infecting into the lung tissue and triggering the emergence of Middle East respiratory Syndrome (MERS), and Heart Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) / severe acute respiratory disorders.
If you feel symptoms of the virus infection, accompanied by a history of traveling to the corona epicenter / area with a positive corona patient case, positive state of the case, or having been in contact with a patient that has been confirmed positive, or being in an environment with a corona positive patient , immediately use a mask, do social distancing with others, and do not hesitate to do the inspection to the nearest health service, or the nearest referral hospital or call the COVID-19 hotline Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia to get further recommendations.
But if you do not feel symptoms or feel mild symptoms without a history of contact, or travel to areas with positive cases of COVID-19 infection, do an independent quarantine at home, and maintain your personal hygiene by diligently washing hands and reducing social contact for a while.
