Regarding The Prevention Of Corona Transmission After Travel From The Affected Area
Good afternoon .. My husband will visit us in Indonesia next week from the UK, I am worried about his trip to Indonesia in the midst of the corona virus outbreak, especially Indonesia has the latest update has been 100 positive cases, about u0026sup2; In addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, cough ethics, are there vitamins that need to be consumed, if there are any suggestions, then if he arrives in Indonesia, is it necessary to quarantine or a few days to isolate himself before meeting family here ???
Good afternoon Melisa, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
True as you said, the principle of preventing viral infections is to increase endurance / immunity by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Regarding the consumption of vitamins, of course it is very useful so it may be done. Vitamins that can be used are vitamins that contain vitamin C. But increasing the consumption of fruits and vegetables as a source of natural vitamins is certainly better.
Keep in mind that quarantine and isolation are two different things. Quarantine is an effort to prevent transmission by separating or restricting people who have contact with infectious diseases (returning from areas that have cases of illness or contact with confirmed cases), people who are quarantined are not necessarily infected with the disease.
Isolation is an attempt to separate people who have tested positive for an infectious disease from someone who is healthy or has not been contaminated.
For this reason in this case it is better to quarantine for 14 days by limiting contact with people around. During quarantine it is important to observe the symptoms of infection that appear. In the case of the quarantine method and where it should be done (specific house or place provided) you can consult further with a pulmonary specialist.
A few answers from me, hopefully it helps.
