How to diagnose conditions due to this virus?

Here are some things a doctor might do to diagnose a coronavirus that might infect you.

  • View your medical history, including symptoms that you feel
  • Physical examination
  • Do a blood test
  • Perform laboratory tests on phlegm, throat samples, or other respiratory specimens.

If you experience the symptoms that have been mentioned, you need to tell your doctor about the location you just visited or contact with animals.

Most MERS-CoV infections have been found to originate in the Arabian Peninsula. Meanwhile, SARS-CoV and 2019-nCoV generally come from China.

So, it is important to report travel history, especially if you are new to the regions mentioned above.

Contact with animals carrying the virus, such as camels and snakes, or using camel-based products is also important to convey to help diagnose diseases caused by coronaviruses.

How to treat conditions due to this virus?
There is no specific treatment for diseases caused by CoV in humans. Most people with diseases caused by this virus will heal by themselves.

However, things that can relieve symptoms of disease due to coronavirus are:

  • Take pain and flu medicines, but don't give aspirin to children
  • Use a humidifier or take a shower with hot water to relieve a sore throat and cough.
  • If you experience mild illness, you need to drink lots of water and rest at home.

Symptoms The severity of signs and symptoms of radiation sickness depends on how much radiation you've absorbed.
