Frequently asked questions about COVID-19.
Symptoms of COVID-19 as follows:
If there are people who, within 14 days before the symptoms appear, have traveled to an infected country or have treated/had close contact with a COVID-19 suspect or patient, then that person will be examined through further laboratory examinations to confirm the diagnosis.
If the aforementioned symptoms are present AND you have traveled to a COVID-19 infected country or was exposed to a COVID-19 positive patient, contact the Jakarta Provincial Department of Health's COVID-19 Hotline at 112 via phone call, 081 112 112 112 or 081 388 376 955 via WhatsApp to receive further instructions.
Patient Under Supervision is someone with an Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI), i.e., fever (≥38°C) or a history of fever; accompanied by one of the symptoms/signs of Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI) such as coughing/shortness of breath/sore throat/runny nose/mild to severe pneumonia AND no other cause based on a convincing clinical observation AND in the last 14 days before symptoms appear, meet one of the following criteria: “have traveled or stayed in a country which has reported local transmission of COVID-19” or “have traveled to or lived in Indonesian regions where local transmission has been reported”.;
a person with fever (≥38°C) or a history of fever or ARI AND in the last 14 days before symptoms appear has a history of contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19;
a person with severe ARI/severe pneumonia in a local transmission area in Indonesia who needs treatment in a hospital AND no other cause based on a convincing clinical observation.
It is still uncertain how long COVID-19 can stay on the surface of an object. However, preliminary studies show that COVID-19 can last for several hours, depending on the type of surface, temperature, or humidity of the environment.
But a simple disinfectant can kill the virus so that it is impossible to infect people. And getting used to washing hands with soap and water, or alcohol-based hand rubs, and avoiding touching your eyes, mouth, or nose are more effective in protecting yourself.
A person can get infected from the carrier of coronavirus or a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. This disease can spread through small droplets from the nose or mouth when coughing or sneezing. The droplet then falls on the surrounding objects. If someone touches an object that has been contaminated with the droplet, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth, then that person can be infected with COVID-19. Or someone could get infected by accidentally inhaling droplets from the infected person. Therefore, it is crucial to wear a mask and keep a safe distance of about one meter from others.
To this day, experts are still conducting investigations to determine the source of the virus, its type of exposure, and its transmission. Make sure to keep yourself updated with current and accurate sources of information on the development of the disease.
People who live or travel in areas with confirmed transmission of COVID-19 are very likely to be infected. Those infected are people who, within 14 days before symptoms appear, had a travel history to an infected country or who have been in close contact with family members, coworkers, or medical personnel who treat patients before they know they are infected with COVID-19.
Health care workers who treat patients with COVID-19 are at higher risk and must consistently protect themselves with appropriate infection prevention and control procedures.
The transmission of this disease is mainly through small droplets released when a person coughs or sneezes. At present WHO considers that the risk of transmission from someone with no symptoms of COVID-19 is highly unlikely.
However, many people with COVID-19 only experience mild symptoms such as mild coughing, and even barely suffer from any pain, which may occur in the early stages of the disease. Until now, experts are continuing to investigate to determine the transmission period or incubation period of COVID-19. Make sure to keep yourself updated with current and accurate sources of information on the development of the disease.
The test for coronavirus can only be done if there is a high probability that you have the disease.
For example if:
In this case, you should call Jakarta Provincial Department of Health's COVID-19 Hotline at 112 via phone, 081 112 112 112 or 081 388 376 955 via WhatsApp for further instructions.
If you become a suspect of COVID-19, Jakarta's COVID-19 Response Team will take several samples to be tested, for example:
You will also be isolated from other people until the test confirms whether you are negative or positive for COVID-19.
How to prevent corona virus The following simple steps as a basic protection against new corona virus that must be done:
1. Routine hand washing
If previously, you only wash your hands with water then stop the habit. Routinely wash your hands with soap and running water for at least 20 seconds. Make sure you clean your entire hand, including your fingers, between your fingers, and also the tips of your nails.
2. Physical distancing
WHO has officially changed the phrase social distancing to physical distancing. The phrase physical distancing is more appropriate because it is not intended to maintain social distance, but rather to maintain physical distance. Therefore, it is recommended to keep a distance of at least 1 meter from others.
3. Avoid holding your eyes, nose, and mouth
It's not an easy matter to not hold what's on the face because it has become a habit every day for most people
4. When sneezing and coughing,
Don't forget to close Cover using the inner elbow because these areas are rarely touched thus reducing the risk of transmission of the virus. In addition to using your inner elbows, you can also use a tissue but make sure to dispose of the traces immediately in the trash
5. Stay at home
Although you don't feel any symptoms, you can become a carrier and transmit the corona virus to others. When the virus infects people whose immune systems are weak, it can cause Covid-19.
As of now, there is no vaccine to prevent transmission of COVID-19, but you can take some precautionary measures, for example:
People with COVID-19 and influenza will experience the same respiratory tract symptoms, such as fever, cough, and runny nose. Although the symptoms are the same, the causes of the virus are different, so it is difficult for us to identify each of these diseases.
Accurate medical examination with laboratory examination reference is needed to confirm whether someone is infected with COVID-19. For anyone who has a fever, cough, and shortness of breath, we encourage you to seek treatment immediately. Notify health workers about your travel history to an affected country/area in the last 14 days before symptoms appear, or if you have been in close contact with someone who is suffering symptoms of respiratory tract infections.
