Hello Agita,

Thank you for consulting HealthReplies.com.

Sore throat, accompanied by a feeling of being stuck in the throat accompanied by coughing and fever can generally occur due to acute inflammation of the larynx (acute laryngitis), which is generally a sequel to common cold (rhinopharyngitis). It can also be caused by chronic laryngitis, but in chronic laryngitis the prominent symptoms are hoarseness, feeling stuck in the throat, and habitual coughing without mucus; while pain symptoms are rarely encountered.

Acute laryngitis can occur due to vocal cord injuries, viral or bacterial infections. Vocal cord injuries can occur due to voice abuse (vocal abuse) or due to loud coughing. One of the bacterial infections is caused by diphtheria bacteria. While the virus that causes acute laryngitis is generally the same virus that causes other respiratory infections.

While chronic laryngitis, the causes vary, ranging from changes in shape due to age, smoking, alcoholism or fungal infections. Also often associated with chronic sinusitis, severe septal deviation or nasal polyps.

Regarding coronavirus 2 infection or severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) or coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) which also attacks the airways, several things that distinguish normal flu from corona virus infection can be seen here. Furthermore, at least some of the following should be noted, regarding the suspicion of a risk of being infected with SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19:

 Clinical symptoms include nasal congestion, coughing, sore throat, headache, severe shortness of breath and difficulty speaking, high fever (more than 38 degrees Celsius). Travel history to regions or countries with COVID-19 outbreaks (eg China, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Singapore) in the past 14 days; or live in the local transmission area. A history of contact with people who have tested positive for COVID-19 infection. However, it should be noted that COVID-19 infection has a broad spectrum of symptoms, where in some people with a good immune system, this viral infection causes only mild-moderate or no symptoms. the symptoms. A definitive diagnosis requires a physical examination by a doctor, accompanied by supporting examinations.

If you do not find the symptoms listed in point 1, especially high fever and severe shortness of breath, no history of traveling to a country with an outbreak of COVID-19 (point 2), or a history of contact with people you should treat yourself at home, while consuming food regularly in accordance with a balanced nutritional consumption pattern, drinking lots of water, consuming multi-vitamins and regular breaks.

Conversely, if you find symptoms in accordance with point 1, especially high fever and severe shortness of breath, let alone coupled with a history of traveling to a country with a COVID-19 outbreak in the last 14 days (point 2), or the presence of contact riwaya ( point 3), immediately call 119 extension 9 hotline, or immediately check with the nearest corona infection referral health facility. Don't forget to bring a mask and an antiseptic liquid or alcohol-based hand sanitizer with an alcohol content of at least 60%.

HealthReplies.com also provides a free self-assessment facility, to find out whether the person concerned has a risk of contracting the corona virus or not, which can be accessed through this link.

Thus information from me, hopefully can help.

thanks.
