And what must you do against Coronavirus?
Right now, the current guidance – and this might differ – is that if you have signs and symptoms that are related to the cold and the flu and these are moderate symptoms to mild symptoms, remain at home and attempt to manage them with rest, hydration and the use of fever-reducing drugs.
That offer does not implement if you are over age 60 because immune systems fail as we age or if you are pregnant. Someone having concerns about coronavirus should call their healthcare provider.
It’s not obvious if pregnant women have a greater chance of getting severely ill from coronavirus, but the CDC has said that women experience changes in their bodies during pregnancy that may increase their risk of some germs.
Generally, Coronavirus infections are more dangerous if you have underlying health diseases such as
- chronic lung disease,
- asthma, heart failure,
- heart disease,
- sickle cell anemia,
- cancer (or are undergoing chemotherapy),
- kidney disease with dialysis,
- a body mass index (BMI) over 40 (extremely obese),
- an autoimmune disorder.
Older cases and people who have underlying pathological conditions or are immunocompromised must contact their physician early in the course of even mild disease.
Making it all clear, you are at higher risk, even if you are young or if you have underlying health problems.
The people under 60 with underlying disorders, with diabetes, heart disease, immunocompromised or have any sort of lung disease previously, those people are more exposed despite their younger age.
A history of driving to an area where the coronavirus is widespread and those parts of the globe, involving the US, are going up each day. That is obviously another important factor in determining if your symptoms may be Coronavirus or not.
- If you have coverage or insurance and you’re looking for a provider or someone to phone or get in touch with, there’s always a number on the back of your insurance card; or if you move online, there is data for patients.
- If you don’t have coverage or insurance, you could commence with the state health department or the local neighborhood health centers, those are officially known as federally qualified health centers to call.
- If there are a testing center and assessment center nearby, you could go there directly. It’s always helpful to tell them that you’re coming. Unless, you want to call your healthcare official and they will guide you what to do.
