What’s The Difference Between Being Infected With Corona And The Common Cold?
Doc I want to ask, these past few days my head feels light, there is no fever and cough it’s just that my hands are cold but sweaty. And yesterday I was runny, what are the symptoms of a common cold?
Hello Umi Islah, Thank you for the question.
Corona virus is indeed becoming a pandemic / epidemic throughout the world. Knowledge about this virus is still growing. A person can experience symptoms 2-14 days after exposure to this virus. Symptoms that appear in corona virus infection resemble flu symptoms but the three most common symptoms are cough, fever, and shortness of breath. A person can be suspected of being infected with the corona virus if they experience these symptoms and have a history of having a corona virus case or contact / interaction with other people who are suspected or have been confirmed to have a corona virus infection in the last 2 weeks. If you don't have a mild respiratory tract and don't have any of the history above in the last 2 weeks, then your risk of having a small corona virus infection. Cold symptoms that you experience can be caused by colds or colds (caused by rhinovirus). If you experience mild symptoms, in the meantime you can do independent treatment at home and do not need to see a doctor. Try to follow the following recommendations:
