Regarding The Examination Of Corona Risk Independently By Holding Your Breath
Some say how to check exposed to the corona virus by taking a deep breath and being held for 10 seconds then exhaled, if it doesn’t cough or feel uneasy it’s not infected right doc?
Hello Irawan, Thank you for the question.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infection that is currently endemic, caused by a new corona virus called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-coV-2). There are several ways of transmitting this virus:
inhale the coughing and sneezing of COVID-19 sufferers to touch objects that are contaminated with this virus then touch the nose, mouth, eyes contact with people with COVID-19 Someone suspected of having COVID-19 if they have a history of traveling to a country that has COVID-19 cases or a history of contact with a person suspected of being COVID-19 positive in the past 2 weeks. Symptoms can appear 2-14 days after exposure to this virus. Symptoms experienced by sufferers resemble flu symptoms but the three main symptoms found in sufferers are fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. To find out if someone has this infection is a doctor's examination and a throat swab to find this virus. Taking a deep breath and holding it for 10 seconds then is not a way to tell if someone has this infection or not. The assumption is not true. If you have a history of traveling or contact as stated above but have no symptoms or only experience mild flu symptoms, please isolate yourself at home and stay away from interactions / contact with others for the next 14 days. However, if the symptoms appear severe, let alone experience severe shortness of breath, please immediately see a doctor at the nearest emergency room.
To prevent this infection you are advised to:
regularly maintain hand hygiene by washing hands regularly with soap and clean water or alcohol-based hand sanitizers of at least 60% do not touch the nose, mouth and eyes before washing hands keep clean objects around you and maintain cleanliness of the house avoid contact with others those who are sick of coughing and runny nose avoid the crowds and don't go out of the house if you don't need to wear a mask if you are coughing and runny nose get used to close your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing with tissue then immediately throw the tissue into the trash or close with the elbow Hope it helps you.
