Hello Alit, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Covid 19 now is indeed worrying everyone. Covid 19 has early signs and symptoms like the common cold. Covid 19 signs and symptoms such as coughing, runny nose, shortness, fever more than 38 degrees Celsius. Currently the case of corona virus infection has indeed spread in various places.
There are several diseases that have signs and symptoms that are almost the same as covid 19, namely:
Common cold Influenza Pharyngitis ARI, etc. To ascertain what disease you are experiencing, you should consult directly to the nearest doctor to do further tests on you. At this time it is difficult to know whether the other person is suffering from corona virus infection or not, because the sufferer may not experience symptoms. Therefore, you should not panic and stay alert. Right now what you can do is:
Avoid traveling to a crowded place if it is really not an emergency. Avoid contact with sick people. Always keep the body clean, especially washing hands before and after touching / doing activities. Use a mask when you are sick. Maintain a nutritious and healthy diet, especially consumption of fruits and vegetables. Consume lots of water. Get enough rest. Regular exercise. Consult a doctor if complaints continue to aggravate and worry you. That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
