To protect yourself and your family from Covid-19, you must strictly follow the relevant rules of the Ministry of Health. But no one is safe from this disease, as it is transmitted very quickly. Therefore, at the first symptoms, you should call your family doctor and immediately start following his recommendations.

Algorithm of actions when detecting the first signs of Covid-19

There are several main symptoms of coronavirus infection that should not be ignored. Among them are:

  • Sharp fever;
  • Cough;
  • Dyspnea;
  • Loss of smell or taste.

Sometimes there is muscle pain, rash, headache. Self-medication with such signs will only harm your health. Therefore, if the above symptoms appear, you should consult a doctor as soon as possible. The algorithm of actions for Covid-19 symptoms should be as follows:

  • The patient should stay at home.
  • Contact your family doctor by phone.
  • Tell the specialist about the symptoms and describe the history of recent travel. It is necessary to provide information about whether the patient has had contact with people who could potentially be infected.
  • In case of emergency, when the temperature is above 38 °C and cannot be brought down, as well as difficulty breathing, you should urgently seek ambulance by calling 103. This will help stop the spread of the virus and protect family, friends, and colleagues from possible infection.

Additional Recommendations

PCR is the main test that can detect the virus even at the initial stage of the disease. To do this, a person takes a swab from the throat or nose. For the results to be reliable, it is worth taking the test in the morning. It is not recommended to take pills or use throat spray 6 hours before the procedure. You should also not eat, drink, gargle, brush your teeth, or smoke 3-4 hours before the procedure. This procedure is not very pleasant and can cause discomfort, but it is thanks to it that an accurate diagnosis can be made.

The period of self-isolation and closure of the sick leave of a patient who has been confirmed to have Covid-19 is determined by the doctor. As a rule, this time lasts at least 14 days from the date of the onset of the case that caused the infection.

It is worth remembering that asymptomatic Covid 19 occurs only in a small number of patients. Mainly in people with strong immunity. To boost immunity and alleviate the course of the disease, there is a complex of additional therapy consisting of two drugs – Aerovital Revitasol. Statistics show that patients who used this complex in parallel with classical treatment returned to normal life twice as fast.
