Hello Tegar, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The complaint you are referring to may be a lump in your throat. The complaint is certainly caused by various possibilities. For more details, you can read here.
To determine the complaint that you are experiencing is Corona infection or not necessarily need a complete examination starting from a physical examination and relevant supporting examinations such as blood tests, chest X-rays, and others. You can read this to distinguish between the common cold and Corona infection.
With the outbreak of Corona virus infection that is happening right now especially in Indonesia, if you are in an area with confirmed corona events, it is better if you have symptoms of respiratory tract infections immediately contact your doctor for an examination. For now all you can do is stay at home to avoid wider transmission, avoid traveling and gathering in the crowd. Some things you can do at home:
A healthy and nutritious diet, multiply fruits and vegetables Drink enough water, multiply breaks Regular and regular exercise at home Use a mask if you have respiratory complaints Routine hand washing So, hopefully it helps
