Initially I was sick with a fever, cough, runny nose. Then it spread to my mother and father. Now my father and I have recovered, just cough, while my mother is still sick. All families have checked with the doctor, This is similar to flu symptoms but since there are many news about corona I feel worried, I do not go abroad or have contacts with outsiders and I live in a village where no one has been infected. Is the flu really contagious, and what is the difference between the corona virus and the common cold?

Hello Sumiati, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.


Indonesia is currently in a state of panic due to covid infection 19 / corona virus. This virus is easily transmitted from one person to another. Covid 19 itself is transmitted through droplets or sparks of one's saliva. If someone is infected with the virus the symptoms that will arise are fever> 38'C, cough, and shortness of breath. Complaints caused actually similar to some other diseases that cause excessive concern in the community.


Some diseases that are often associated with this corona infection are:

Common Cold.
Influenza.
ARI.

Some of the above diseases can also be contagious, from sufferers to others this is what happens to your family. Some of them can heal themselves / self limiting disease, so it does not require special treatment. You may be worried, but you cannot panic. Because panic can harm you. Right now what you can do is:

Get enough rest, to protect your immunity.
Eat nutritious foods, and get enough of your daily fluids.
Use a mask, because some of the diseases above can also be contagious.
Avoid cigarettes, and alcohol.
Avoid traveling to crowded places for a while.

That's all my answer, thank you :)
