1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically, the main symptoms found in COVID-19 infection are coughing, high fever, and shortness of breath. At this time the possibility of you contracting the COVID-19 virus in Indonesia can still be considered very small, unless you have a history of traveling to an area that has been infected with a lot of viruses (such as to China, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Iran, etc.) or have direct contact with people returning from these countries.

Symptoms such as cough, runny nose, and chest like tightness can still be caused by a viral infection in the common respiratory tract (colds / common cold). For now, you don't need to worry too much, generally a cold is a mild infection and does not require any specific treatment. You just need to sleep and rest more, drink more fluids, eat enough, and consume only symptomatic drugs if needed (for example cold medicines, cold cough medicines). Because a common respiratory tract virus infection is also easily transmitted to others, you are also advised to wear a mask to prevent transmission and wash your hands frequently.

In most cases, corona virus infection also only gives mild symptoms (same as cold symptoms) and in most people it is not dangerous. If you are worried that you are suffering from the Corona virus, you also only need to take precautionary measures as mentioned above, and if your symptoms feel heavy (you have a high fever and heavy breathing difficulties), you can also do a hospital check-up to further examination.
