Thank you for the question.
Covid-19 is a disease caused by a coronavirus infection that attacks the respiratory tract. This disease causes symptoms such as high fever (body temperature above 38 degrees Celsius) followed by complaints of cough, sore throat, runny nose, and in advanced conditions can give symptoms of shortness of breath as in pneumonia. In addition, the disease is influenced by a history of traveling abroad, being in an endemic area in the country, or a history of contact with a positive person covid-19 in the last 14 days. You can access the following page to check covid-19 risk.
There are other possible causes of your complaint, such as:
If you really suffer from Covid-19, this disease can heal itself even though it is very contagious, so if you have mild symptoms (cold cough, fever that can go down with fever-lowering drugs, without severe shortness of breath) is to isolate yourself for 14 days without make physical contact with other people. However, if you experience severe shortness of breath that does not improve with steps at home, you can contact the co-19 referral hospital in your area for further information on the actions you need to take.
Here are the things you can do to reduce shortness of breath and other complaints:
Take dizziness medications like paracetamol. To treat shortness of breath, you can take bronchodilators which can be obtained by prescription from a doctor.
Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or sanitizer.
Drink warm water and reduce spicy / sweet / oily food to relieve dry cough.
Take vitamin supplements to maintain immunity, and consume spicy drinks.
Fulfilling nutrition needs and 2-3 liters of water per day.
Manage stress well.
Hopefully this information can help and hopefully get well soon.
