Hello Ainy ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Corona virus or commonly called covid-19 is a virus that originated in wuhan-china and then spread rapidly to other countries, this virus attacks the respiratory tract and can affect anyone whether newborns, teenagers and even the elderly. In some cases this virus only causes mild symptoms such as coughing, runny nose, but can also cause severe infections such as penumonia. Symptoms arising from this virus are:
- Fever more than 38 degrees centigrade
- Hard to breathe
The incubation period of this virus is 2-14 days after exposure to the corona virus, if you feel you have a similar complaint and are worried about having contact with people who are exposed to the virus, you should apply social distancing for 14 days followed by continuing to try to increase your body's immunity, how to increase body immunity by eating nutritious foods, taking immune-boosting vitamins, fulfilling the minimum water requirement of 2L per day, washing hands according to WHO's recommendations, take the medicine in accordance with your complaints and in accordance with the recommendations listed from the drug, if you worry to go to the doctor, you can take drugs that are in pharmacies and follow the recommended use of these drugs, wear a mask if you are going to the doctor.
But in situations where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so as not to be exposed to the virus, if there are complaints such as sore throats that get worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by more fever from 38 degrees centigrade, a cold cough that does not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though you have tried to take medication and enough rest, you should check yourself to the doctor, for further examination.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
