According to Alexander Myasnikov, in 90% of cases, citizens with COVID-19 can be successfully treated at home. But there are symptoms that in no case can be ignored – and even more so, you do not need to self-medicate. Among them – shortness of breath with moderate exertion and at rest. In coronavirus, this symptom appears between 4 and 8 days after infection, accompanied by fever and cough.
It's important not to ignore dehydration. With it, the head is spinning, dry mouth appears, and rare urination is observed. Temperature more than 38, drowsiness, lethargy or lethargy are also alarms.
An ambulance will not be needed if the temperature is below 38 degrees, there are body aches, pain in the muscles, head, throat and there is a cough without shortness of breath, the specialist informed. In this case, you will need a doctor's consultation, even by telephone, or you can go to the clinic.
