Symptoms Of Corona Virus – Covid19

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
In most people, COVID-19 disease causes mild symptoms such as fever and dry cough. Other symptoms that can also be experienced are weakness, cough with phlegm, shortness of breath (in severe infections), muscle and joint pain, sore throat, headache, etc. The virus incubation period (the period between the entry of the virus until symptoms appear) can vary between 2-14 days, the average is 5 days. Therefore, if the possibility of new exposure occurs this afternoon, the symptoms that you experience are not symptoms of COVID-19.
You should also measure body temperature objectively using a thermometer. Someone can only be said to have a fever if his body temperature rises to above normal (more than 37.5 degrees Celsius). If the body temperature does not exceed 37.5 degrees Celsius, then someone can not be called a fever.
If you or your family member really has a fever, then you and your family must do isolation at home. Perform regular body temperature measurements for the next few days and see also the presence or absence of other symptoms such as dry cough or shortness of breath. If triad symptoms occur, call 119 ext 9 to find out further examination flow.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
