The Association Of Consumption Of Cold Drinks To Corona Transmission
Doc, do people who frequently drink cold drinks can ease the covid-19 virus on our bodies
Hello Fikar, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
At present Indonesia is being horrendous with a Covid-19 infection. This virus is relatively new and very quickly spread throughout the world, and was first discovered in Wuhan, China. Covid -19 transmission is through droplets or saliva splashes. There are currently 1000+ patients who have been tested positive for covid-19 infection. The panic arose in the community, this was caused by the lack of understanding of the community, and Hoax which was widely circulated so that it was misleading.
Respond to the question you gave, regarding consumption of cold drinks with Covid-19 infection. There is no research to support this statement. Actually it is not so important considering that now there are prevention methods which have proven to be effective in preventing Covid-19 infections such as:
Staying at home is now the first choice for the general public. Avoid the crowd for a while. Perform physical distancing by giving a distance of about 1-2 meters when interacting with others. Do self-isolating if you are sick, even if it's just a cold cough and evaluation if within a few days the complaint improves then it's not corona, whereas if the complaint gets worse consult a doctor. Wash hands before and after carrying out activities with soap and running water. Use a mask, especially when you are sick. Get enough rest, and eat nutritious foods to maintain and enhance your immunity. Multivitamin consumption is recommended too. Avoid doing stupid things like wearing a hazmat suit to the market, using layers of layers, wearing gloves where to go, hoarding masks, selling handsanitizers at high prices, etc. Don't scold or disobey the rules suggested for the good of the Indonesian people. If you have done some of these things you will help the government in helping to break the chain of transmission of the disease. That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
