Corona virus symptoms and when to start home isolation According to the world health organisation Corona viruses are a wide family of viruses that may cause illness in animals and humans. It is known that a number of coronaviruses cause respiratory diseases in humans, ranging in severity from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The newly discovered corona virus causes Covid-19 disease.
Symptoms of the Corona virus that I can fear
Unfortunately, it is the same or the closest symptom to the normal role of influenza, and because we are in the period of the epidemic, any doubt about the suspicion of Corona is considered Corona until it is confirmed by examinations and detection, and before confirmation, home isolation begins.
Corona symptoms are:
- Burning in Al-Zour
- a headache
- Taste problem
- Smell problem
- Soreness in the body, bones or muscles
- There is no soul to eat
- A tendency to vomit or vomit
80% of suspected cases of covid 19, symptoms remain very simple and treatment remains at home through a specific treatment protocol according to symptoms and examinations
When do you start home isolation?
In the event that you begin to feel these symptoms, you will begin to isolate yourself at home, and these tests will be done so that they will be presented to a specialist doctor to start advising you on the appropriate treatment protocol for the stage of your injury, symptoms, age and many factors that determine the method of your treatment.
The tests and x-rays required to diagnose the Corona virus are:
- D Dimer
- Chest CT scan
And if there are respiratory symptoms, or a cough, or two simple approaches, or the beginning of cyanosis in the lips and extremities, we will need to do a CT scan on the chest + a measurement of the percentage of oxygen in the blood through a Pulse Oximeter
During the first period of isolation, we take care of measuring the temperature daily, eating proper nutrition, eating vegetables and protein, and drinking a large amount of water.
The most important thing is home isolation, so that we do not cause the infection of those staying with us at home.
