We understand the concerns that you feel
Pandemic COVID-19 disease by the New Variant corona virus (SARS-COV-2) raises various concerns for the community. Symptoms that look similar to the symptoms of the common cold, in some groups of people can trigger respiratory problems that lead to respiratory failure and death. But for those who have good immunity, the virus will disappear on its own with mild-moderate or no symptoms.
Until now, symptoms that are often complained of in patients with corona virus infection / COVID-19 include:

Based on the information you provide, judging from your travel history and symptoms felt by your friend, the condition does lead to COVID-19 virus infection.

Whereas suspect (patient in monitoring) is a patient (a person who is already sick) with moderate-severe symptoms with shortness of breath (symptoms of pneumonia) and a history of traveling to a place with a positive case of COVID-19.
Your friend's status can be categorized as suspect. In this case, you should immediately check the nearest health service for COVID-19 referral for further examination to determine whether or not there is a virus infection. suspect must carry out quarantine / independent isolation.
If a positive result is obtained based on a rapid test or blood test, then the health worker / doctor will direct the patient to perform an independent quarantine in the hospital or a special place provided. operational procedures) handling infectious diseases in hospitals.
