Thank you for the question.
Shortness of breath can indeed be a sign of infection in the respiratory tract, including due to the Corona virus (or the disease called COVID-19). Even if you do not have a fever, cough, and other symptoms of COVID-19, you still need to be suspected of having COVID-19, especially if you live / have traveled to an area with an outbreak of COVID-19, or if you are out of contact with sufferers / suspects of COVID-19 .
But that's not all, shortness of breath that you experience may also occur due to other triggers, for example allergies and airway irritation, dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), intestinal obstruction, heart problems, foreign body aspiration, asthma, anemia, pneumothorax, pleural effusion, acid-base balance disorders, panic attacks, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
To improve, you try to compress your tightness of the chest. Not only that, you also need to avoid factors that can aggravate your tightness (eg dust, cold, wind, smoke, pollution, animal hair), improve your personal hygiene, get plenty of rest, don't eat too late, don't smoke, and manage stress well. and wise.
If the tightness is heavy, if you have a risk factor for contracting COVID-19, or if other signs of danger appear, such as high fever for more than 3 days, wheezing, vomiting, palpitations, swelling of the body, etc., do not hesitate to check direct yourself to the doctor or internist huh ..
I hope this helps.
