Symptoms that are commonly found in suspected corona virus infections that cause COVID-19 include fever, cough, runny nose or sore throat. If you experience these symptoms but can be categorized as mild and the health condition is relatively stable, and there is no history of contact with confirmed cases of COVID-19 or traveling to areas with local transmission of COVID-19 spread in the last 14 days, then you are advised to remain at home for reduce the risk of contracting the virus by other people. While you can take drugs labeled with green that can be purchased without a doctor's prescription to reduce symptoms. With good endurance, enough rest, and good nutrition, your health will gradually recover.
If the above symptoms are accompanied by a history of contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 or traveling to an area with a local transmission of COVID-19 spread in the last 14 days, it is advisable to check with the nearest health facility or contact a COVID-19 call center. If the examination is suspected as a suspect COVID-19 then you doctor will suggest further examination to support the suspicion.
In your case if it is classified as stable it is appropriate to remain in the house, even if diagnosed as suspect or suspect. You are only advised to go to the hospital if you experience worsening symptoms, namely severe shortness of breath.
Because the current condition is a world pandemic, health facilities and personnel will not be able to handle all patients with respiratory complaints. Therefore, the symptoms of health problems with stable conditions, people are encouraged to stay at home, keep their distance, don't get together, get enough rest, get good nutrition, and always think positively as an effort to prevent corona virus infection.
That's all, hope you can help.
