Coronaviruses can cause a range of symptoms ranging from gastrointestinal to respiratory. When you’re unwell, take note of the most common symptoms and other severe ones such as a high fever, chills, headache, nausea and vomiting. In some cases, the virus can be transmitted to others from the person who is ill. But because those who are sick are contagious prior to showing symptoms, such infections can be spread by touching surfaces where the virus can be transferred.
In many cases, the bug takes a week or two to infect those around it, and no treatment is needed if all the symptoms have passed. But if the virus goes unnoticed for longer than that, there is some form of treatment that does involve medicine. Two or three days of treatment with antiviral drugs such as oseltamivir (Tamiflu) or levofloxacin (Relenza) can usually stop or lessen the severity of an infection, but the severity of the illness may improve with each additional day.
If your symptoms persist longer than three days, you may want to get a steroid injection to reduce swelling around the lips, throat, head, and other internal parts. This procedure will lessen swelling, pain, redness, and/or drainage in the larynx and throat. That feeling of pain around the neck and throat is the feeling of sores and inflammation that can develop in the throat if the virus has not gone away.
For a young child or a person who is also elderly, early identification of an infection that continues to be progressed can improve symptoms and help with the ability to do a cure.
If you have had a disease that is possibly associated with the coronavirus, then you need to make sure that you maintain contact with doctors or in-house personnel that regularly examine your health and your diet. You should discuss your health history and any connections to illness with your doctor or pharmacist as well as your pharmacy about the effects of the virus.
You should change your diet, as the virus affects many bacteria in the intestines and could be transmissible to people with certain types of these bacteria.
