In case you have covid.

(1)Keep calm and isolate yourself.

Isolate yourself as soon as you notice any symptoms, such as a sore throat, cough, loose motions, or fever. This simple precaution can save lives and aid in the reduction of COVID-19 transmission. Please don't be concerned. It's important to remember that most people recover from COVID-19 without the need for hospitalization.

(2) Seek medical advice.

Call a doctor who can analyze your situation and provide you advice on the best course of action. They may advise you to stay at home and manage your symptoms, or they may advise you to go to the hospital.

(3) Put on a mask.

Make sure you and anybody else who will be dealing with you in person are wearing a triple-layered mask that totally covers your nose and mouth. Do not touch your masks frequently or your face.

(4) Make sure you're getting enough oxygen.

It's critical to use a pulse oximeter to monitor your oxygen saturation levels on a frequent basis. Place your finger in the slot, push the button, and wait for the screen to display your oxygen level and pulse rate. If your breaths are coming in too quickly, check it every six hours or more frequently. Between 95 and 99 percent, oxygen saturation is considered to be a healthy level. If it drops below 94 percent, consult your doctor right away for medical care.

(5) Only use medications that a doctor has prescribed.

A doctor may prescribe drugs to ease symptoms while you are at home. Self-medicate is not a good idea. Garlic, camphor, and carom seed are examples of home remedies that do not enhance oxygen levels.
