Hello doctor. I doubt whether I am infected with Corona or not. The problem is that I have experienced: 1. heat ups and downs. Fireflies eyes 3. Throat when eating food feels painful
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically at this time corona virus transmission can occur to anyone even though there is no clear contact with people with COVID-19. The main symptoms of this disease are fever and dry cough, sometimes it can also be found symptoms such as shortness of breath in people who experience severe symptoms. People who are at risk of experiencing severe symptoms are elderly people and also people who have comorbidities (such as having heart disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer, decreased immune system, etc.). People who smoke are also more at risk of experiencing severe symptoms of COVID-19.
We recommend that you try to take measurements of body temperature using a thermometer. If indeed you have a fever (your body temperature 38 degrees Celsius or more), you should do self-isolation at home. It is not yet clear whether you are infected with the corona virus or not because there must be a laboratory examination to confirm it, but at present the laboratory examination for the corona virus cannot be accessed easily. Therefore to prevent the possibility of transmission if you are infected, isolation at home is highly recommended. Here are some things you can do:
Do not stay out of your house if you are not really forced to (for the sake of seeing a doctor if necessary)
Stay in your own room if there are other people in your house
As much as possible avoid contact with other people in your home
Don't eat from the same plate or use cutlery together with people in your home
Always use a mask, even at home (you may take it off when you are in the room alone)
Wash your hands frequently with soap and encourage people in your home to do the same
Take care of your health and endurance by getting enough sleep, eating and drinking enough, exercising enough, and not smoking
If you experience severe shortness of breath, immediately contact 119 ext 9 to find out further examination flow.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
