2 years have passed since the first case of covid-19. Millions of confirmed positive cases and increasing every day. The government has taken steps to prevent the spread of this virus, one of which is self-isolation.
However, not all patients can self-isolate. There are several criteria, including close contact with a person who is positive for COVID-19, confirmed positive for COVID-19 through a PCR test or Antigen Rapid Test, has mild symptoms (cough, fever, or sore throat) or is asymptomatic, has no comorbidities, are under 45 years old, and have a supportive isolation location, such as rooms and toilets that are separate from other family members and have good light and air circulation.
Self-isolation is carried out for 10 days after being tested positive for asymptomatic patients, 10 days from the onset of symptoms plus 3 symptom-free days from the time symptoms first appeared for patients with mild symptoms, and 14 days for patients who had close contact with a positive case of COVID-19.
So what should patients do during self-isolation?
1.) Not active outside the house
2.) Avoid contact with other family members
3.) Wear a mask
4.) Use separate eating and bathing utensils with other family members, and wash them yourself
5.) Wash your hands with soap and running water
6.) Drink water, consume nutritious food and supplements or vitamins recommended by the doctor
7.) Get enough rest
8.) Do light exercise and bask in the sun every morning, approximately 15-30 minutes
9.) Measure body temperature and oxygen levels every morning and evening
10.) Monitor if symptoms appear
11.) Take advantage of telemedicine such as mDoc to consult a doctor or redeem medicine
