Hi Tedy,

The emergence of thick nasal mucus accompanied by coughing and discomfort in the throat can be caused by the following conditions:

 Respiratory tract infections by viruses or bacteria Sore throat Sinusitis Your actions to be aware of the possibility of corona virus infection are correct, while the symptoms of corona virus infection are as follows:

 Symptoms such as flu, namely fever, runny nose, sore throat, muscle aches or headaches Coughing Chest pain Shortness of breath You should be aware if you have a history of traveling to the area that has a case of corona virus infection or there are relatives / contact with people infected with the corona virus. Current government recommendations are social distribution so that referral or treatment in hospitals is only prioritized in emergency cases.

If you might be exposed to a virus but don't experience any symptoms or there are fairly mild symptoms then you don't need to worry too much and can consult directly with your doctor to get appropriate treatment.

The following recommendations for you:

 Get enough rest Manage stress wisely Consumption of enough water, a minimum of 2-3 liters per day Consumption of vitamin C or a multivitamin if necessary Immediately consult a doctor if complaints persist or worsen Hopefully useful,
