Hello Budi Journalist, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Since President Joko widodo announced the existence of a corona virus novel infection in Indonesia, there has been excessive panic among Indonesian citizens. This can be seen from the purchase of excess food, being willing to buy masks at unreasonable prices, so that most questions at HealthReplies.com lead to the infection of the corona virus novel regardless of the complaint. This is natural if we are increasingly aware of the transmission of the virus, but do not let us panic, because it can actually harm you. The mind will continue to remain uneasy, until material losses are excessive.
The corona virus novel is not so deadly, especially for those aged <50 years, and is not suffering from other types of diseases that can aggravate such as heart failure, kidney failure, cancer, etc. At this time many people have recovered from the infection. In Vietnam, all patients are declared cured, and have been able to move normally again Basically the virus will die and it will be difficult to infect if our immunity is good. What is feared from this virus is its spread so quickly, this is based on how the virus itself is transmitted. This virus is transmitted between humans through droplets or saliva. Saliva here does not mean just spit, yes, but the spark can spread. When talking, a human is considered to issue 3000 droplets and when sneezing 40,000 droplets. This is what underlies that everyone who has symptoms such as a corona virus novel infection must wear a mask.
Responding to complaints that occur to you, it is true that these complaints can occur in a corona virus novel infection, but it is still very small possibility considering that currently only 2 people have tested positive for the virus. Some diseases that are more likely to occur to you are as follows:
Common Cold. Influenza. ARI / acute airway infection. Some of the above possibilities are also easily transmitted between people, so you can wear a mask at this time, but if you don't have a mask you can use a handkerchief, or other clean cloth to minimize droplets that come out of your mouth.
You can see a doctor, especially if the complaint gets worse like a fever, heightening, excessive coughing, etc. The doctor will conduct an examination in accordance with your complaint, and provide appropriate treatment.
Right now what you can do is:
Avoid panic like buying a mask at a very high price, buying excessive food, confining yourself at home, etc. Avoid traveling to crowded places first if you don't have special interests. Get enough rest, eat nutritious foods so that your body's immunity increases. Sleep 7-8 hours per day. Drink 2 L of water per day. Always wash your hands after every activity, and before every meal. Avoid touching the T area of the face, the eyes, nose and mouth. Exercise regularly. You can take vitamin supplements. That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
