Simple recommendations for cases of increased risk of disease.
The symptoms of COVID-19 infection are the same as of many acute respiratory infections: dry cough, fever, difficulty breathing, sore throat, weakness and malaise. Nausea and vomiting, headache, diarrhea and stuffy nose are less common. There is a risk of COVID-19 if you have any of these symptoms, especially a dry cough with fever and shortness of breath.
You may stay at home or visit a hospital depending on your symptoms and how you feel. Keep an eye on your condition if you stay home and ask about medical help if you getting worse.
Don’t do self-treatment or take any medication that is not prescribed to you under no circumstances.
The duration of the disease is usually two weeks. It’s 3 to 6 weeks in severe cases. You must not go out of the house if it is decided to treat coronavirus at home. Ask friends to bring you all the necessary food and other goods you may need if you live alone. They should give it to you without direct contact so leave them behind the door.
You should isolate yourself in a separate room and try not to contact anyone to protect your next of kin if you are not living alone. Especially those who are over 60 years old are in a high-risk group. By the way, all households will also have to be tested and most likely not to leave the house.
Don’t panic even if you’re sure you have a coronavirus infection. Remember that the disease goes away without noticeable complications and with mild signs of infection in the most cases. Do not neglect prevention measures, wear a mask, continue to wash your hands thoroughly and observe isolation.
