What Are The Characteristics Of Cough Symptoms Of Corona?
Does the cough from the corona virus go on just one time?
Thank you for the question.
COVID-19 (Corona virus disease-2019) can vary in clinical symptoms, depending on age, endurance, and severity of the disease. In general, those who should be suspected of suffering from COVID-19 are people with complaints of fever, coughing, and shortness of breath who have a history of traveling to the COVID-19 outbreak area, have a history of contacting people from COVID-19 outbreak areas, or have a history of contacting directly with sufferers of COVID-19 itself. In addition to the complaints above, COVID-19 can also cause other clinical symptoms, such as colds, sore throat, decreased appetite, throat phlegm, weakness, muscle and joint pain, chills, nausea, vomiting, and even diarrhea in some people.
Coughing because COVID-19 is almost no different from coughing due to respiratory infections by a variety of viruses and other bacteria. This cough can only occur occasionally in infants and in people who have good endurance, but can also occur very severely (continuously) in more severe cases. Therefore, the diagnosis of COVID-19 is not only made by evaluating the characteristics of the cough. In addition to exploring the details of complaints that arise and the risk history of COVID-19 as mentioned above, the doctor also needs to do a direct physical examination, as well as several supporting tests to identify whether or not you have contracted this disease, such as blood tests, x-rays, sputum tests, throat tissue swabs, and so on.
It is better if you feel that you have symptoms similar to COVID-19 or have a risk of contracting COVID-19, immediately check with your doctor or internist at the nearest health facility for further evaluation and treatment.
I hope this helps.
