APC Next Level: What to do if you have Covid

A lot changed when the pandemic happened. Lives were lost, jobs affected, restricted travelling opportunities and more. While many safety measures and vaccines have been made, it is also important that we take better care of our health.

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Colds
  • Body pain 
  • Diarrhoea
  • Lost of sense of taste 

Here is a guide of what you can do at your own home so you can avoid worsening your condition. Check it out!

Remain calm

If you are feeling unwell and the fear of having the virus is starting to sink in, the first thing you should do is remain calm. Do not let your thoughts run wild, and instead, take a deep breath. Panicking might just make your condition worse. Since the symptoms of the coronavirus are similar to a common cold, you should not instantly assume the worst and instead hope that it’s going to be okay. 

Stay at home

With the rapid spread of the virus, it is recommended that you stay at home if you are experiencing any of the symptoms. You should avoid going outside for the first few days so you can recuperate properly. However, if two weeks have passed and you are getting worse, you can pay a visit to Global Healthcare for a check-up. 

Stay hydrated 

Another important health tip if you are feeling sick is to hydrate yourself. Drink warm water with honey especially if you have a runny nose and cough. Take a break from your work or school so you can properly recover from your sickness. Good sleep can help alleviate any pain in your body so it’s important that you use this time to focus on yourself. 

Eat fruits and vegetables

Eating green vegetables and juicy fruits can improve your condition. This is because it gives your body the nutrients it needs. You should consume a lot of food so you have energy. If you are feeling a loss of appetite, take fewer portions at a time. Don’t forget to take your medicine after every meal and avoid moving a lot around your house.
