Good evening Doctor,

Hello Aspayon,

Thank you for the question.

The epidemic of COVID-19 (a disease caused by Corona virus infection) today does indeed need to be addressed wisely, that is, be alert, do not panic but do not underestimate. Transmission of COVID-19 can occur through contact with airway mucus, such as when a person coughs, sneezes, or spits. This transmission can not only occur through direct contact, but can also indirectly, such as when exchanging cutlery, shaking hands, contact with public facilities, and so on. In adults who are healthy and strong endurance, this disease may not cause serious complications. But on the contrary, if the disease is transmitted to the elderly or children, especially those who have problems with endurance or who have comorbidities (such as diabetes, hypertension, etc.), then this disease can be very deadly.

The government recently instructed its citizens to conduct social distancing. This means, we as citizens must limit our interaction with others, except for urgent matters. The purpose of the enactment of these instructions is to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, especially to vulnerable groups of society as mentioned earlier.

Need to be clarified, for what reason are you traveling? Is it really urgent, or just for a vacation?

If it is urgent, you can take measures to protect yourself so that your risk of contracting COVID-19 will be smaller, for example by:

 Traveling by private vehicle if possible, limit traveling by public transportation Use a mask when in a crowd. Wash your hands with running water and soap whenever you have a chance to wash your hands, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer. Do not carelessly touch your face, especially before washing your hands If there are people around you who cough or sneeze, keep a minimum distance of 1 m. Do not just randomly shake hands with others. If it is not possible, always wash your hands after shaking hands. However, if it turns out that your traveling business is not urgent, then according to the government's recommendation, you should undo your intention to carry out these traveling activities for the benefit of yourself, your family, and our country's community in general .

I hope this helps.
