For almost a year Covid entered my country, many people thought that this virus was dangerous. Moreover, seeing the death rate due to this virus is soaring. Will there be the best solution that can be accepted by everyone? Like everyone "forced" to accept the presence of Covid-19 without exception.

Meanwhile, there are still those who think that people who are exposed to this virus should be shunned. The initial goal is of course to prevent transmission. But does avoiding transmission by closing communication with people who are or may still be exposed to it be called human? It seemed too evil to call this kind of person a dead conscience.

Facts About Corona Virus

To people who have tested positive for Covid-19, there are many suggestions to get rid of the virus from the body immediately. Start by inhaling eucalyptus oil or dropping it on the middle of the tongue. Or drinking various kinds of herbs as an antidote to the virus. Some suggest always drinking warm water so that the virus in the throat dies. Is that right? Here are the facts.

Thousand Faces Disease

Covid-19 has a variety of symptoms that were initially difficult to detect as a new disease. Early in its appearance at the end of 2019 and entering Indonesia in early 2020, fever is the most common indicator of Covid-19 in a person's body. But then the term PWS (People Without Symptoms) was discovered. That is, the body carries this virus around before spreading it to other people.

The initial positive symptoms of Covid are similar to the common cold, which is now changing, increasing, like a gene mutation that occurs in movies. It is not only the lungs that are attacked and cause death. But also the blood flow is frozen, making the sufferer feel pain all over his body. Some experience severe diarrhea. So you need fluids to replace body fluids as soon as possible so you don't get dehydrated.

Some initially have no symptoms, then develop a red rash that is bothersome and torturous. How terrible this disease. Not to mention the data showing that this virus can only be detected accurately by a swab test. Meanwhile, PCR tools are still limited and mostly available only in big cities. It is also the price that one test can reach hundreds of dollars.

How are the commoners in the interior if they have to suffer positive Covid? Meanwhile, the number of positive cases is increasing. Health facilities are now getting full. Is it true that there are still those who have the heart to think that the person who is exposed is the criminal in the world of health? Like at the beginning of its presence, many thought that this disease was the result of a conspiracy.

It may be too naive to think of this pandemic as an international drama. Although yes, it is possible that it could happen. Because no matter how many good people on this earth, there are still more who are evil and want to rule. Isn't that awful?

Attacking the Immune System and Important Organs

Now, it's not only the lungs that are attacked when someone is suffering from Covid. Sometimes this virus attacks the stomach, blood vessels, and excretory system. Some (although small) are at risk of dying from this disease. No one could guarantee who he would attack. Or predict where to fall victim to virus transmission when interacting with multiple people.

Can Be Cured But The Risk Of Death Is High

No one has survived the risk of being exposed to this virus. But why does the negative stigma against Covid-19 survivors still think of it as negative? It is as if they are the main cause of this pandemic that never ends. Whereas when exposed to this virus, there are only two possibilities: recovery and safety from the virus because antibodies are formed. Or towards the gates of death.

Positive Covid Is Not a Disgrace

Indeed, when the medical team tested positive for Covid, this was not a disgrace. It's an opportunity to take care of yourself more and focus on positive affirmations. Because the immune system will not be fully formed when people around him feel sad. So this disease must be ready to be faced by anyone, anywhere. It doesn't matter high officials or commoners in all corners of the country.

There are advantages also in my country not strictly protecting its citizens from the transmission. The more positive Covid, the greater the possibility of herd immunity being formed soon. So that the majority of residents are protected from the Covid-19 virus. There should be no more negative stigma for those who are exposed and are still fine.

PWS (People Without Symptoms)

This is the worst part of this disaster for me. You are always skeptical about people and even yourself. Noone wants to cause anybody get infected and, moreover, not knowing the exact number of the infected people made this case even worse 😑😑

Thanks for your nice post dear ^^

The symptoms are the same as with influenza! Influenza is not the same as catching a cold. Influenza means fever for at least one week.

The body needs antibodies to fight whatever needs to be fought. If tested positive but the person doesn't feel sick it's no problem at all. Only 2% is that I'll they need to go to hospital and a small amount of these people ends up on the IC.

I am curious about the number of people who are not infected and those who are tested positive but not ended up in hospital. These are the numbers we should focus on.

Strange is with covid influenza no longer exists and no one does of cancer, a heart attack, etc

Who says nobody has cancer and heart anymore? COVID19 has been exaggerated by the media so that other diseases are not published because it only focuses on the number of people with COVID.

I like this article but could you please submit this to my other community which is SST:Columnist. Since you already have this in other community, it is up to you.

Covid-19 surely are a challenging situation. No matter what we do, it kept spreading. Some of my friends once before PWS, yet we still work together with them by applying all Standard of precaution(SOP) available.

Covid 19 certainly attacks anyone. no matter you are rich or poor, beautiful or ugly, etc. Covid19 is a virus to avoid. However, a negative stigma will still be attached to former Covid sufferers.
