Hello, I want to ask Because corona virus is happening that makes me uneasy. I am one of the people who often coughs and has a cold too. Sometimes accompanied by fever 2/3 days and flu that can occur for 1 week. With this corona virus, do I “have to” check for viruses? My position now is a sore throat with symptoms of itching in the neck of a slight flu and will be feverish. What should I do?

Hi Cindy

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com

Both the common cold and Corona disease are both caused by viruses that attack the human respiratory tract. However, the two viruses are from different groups and have different characteristics.

there is a difference between the common cold and corona, where the common cold caused by rhinovirus has symptoms of sneezing, nasal congestion and runny nose, sore throat, mild headache, coughing and fever. Usually this symptom will heal by itself 4-9 days if it is caused by a virus and if it is caused the bacterium must be given with antibiotics.

while corona has 3 typical symptoms such as high fever, coughing and shortness of breath. Additionally, COVID-19 patients can also experience other symptoms, such as muscle aches, headaches, sore throats, colds, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Although this symptom is very rare. In severe cases, COVID-19 infection can cause serious complications, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome, pneumonia (severe lung infection), pulmonary edema, and malfunction of organs, such as the kidneys.

you should immediately consult a doctor if you suspect you have corona especially if you have contact with an affected person or have gone abroad that is rife with the corona virus. or your illness that doesn't heal or get worse. so the doctor can do a direct examination and provide therapy according to the cause.

There are a number of things you can do:

 use a mask to avoid contracting washing hands before eating using soap, drinking lots of water, resting, not touching the eyes, nose, and mouth with dirty hands. you should consult a doctor about your illness which is getting worse and never healed, do not buy drugs carelessly without doctor's advice, especially antibiotics. because only doctors can provide it according to indications of bacterial infection. You can also read the following article: how to not contract the corona virus
