Sudden Fever At Night Are Corona Symptoms?
Doc, my mother is a motorcycle taxi driver. Now when lockdown, he didn’t lockdown because he said what do you want to eat. I told you not to go to the market first, but I want to go to the market. Yes, I have become my mother but she is still doing her usual activities. So starting from 2 days yesterday, my mother was rather unwell, then I bought the medicine. Today was Maghrib, the body was really hot, doc, because again the corona season, I was afraid that my mother was infected with the corona virus or not . Then I took the doctor but didn’t want to, instead he told me to go to the doctor myself. Please answer the doc 😊

Hello Adelia, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Covid infection 19 has signs and symptoms that are almost the same as flu or other symptoms of the disease. Symptoms of covid 19 infection include coughing, high fever above 38 degrees Celsius, and shortness of breath. Because your mother is still active outside and work that is at risk of contact with others. And of course do not know whether other people who contact with your mother suffer from covid 19 or not, so it can not be ascertained whether the symptoms experienced by covid infection 19 or not. People infected with covid 19 have symptoms and some are asymptomatic.
It is better to give your mother a fever-lowering medication, rest and isolate your mother. Evaluate your mother's condition and condition every day for at least 14 days. If during this time your mother experiences a deterioration, quickly take your mother for an examination to the nearest doctor / health center / hospital. Right now what your mother and you can do is:
Stay alert and don't panic
Avoid going out of the house / traveling to a crowded place if it is not an emergency.
Consumption of enough water.
Maintain a nutritious diet. Consumption of fruits and vegetables.
Give fever-lowering drugs such as paracetamol or ibuprofen or others to reduce fever, also give a multivitamin.
Perform physical distancing / self quarantine for at least 14 days. This is aimed if your mother is indeed positive corona, will reduce transmission, and if your mother is negative, but now your mother's immunity is down will be easily infected.
Avoid contact with your sick mother.
Use a mask / apply ethics cough properly when coughing / runny nose.
Wash your hands often with soap, especially after / before touching something / doing activities.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
