When sneezing or coughing, do not directly cover your mouth and nose with your hands. The correct way is to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or bent elbow. The used tissues should be discarded in a hazardous waste bin, and then your hands should be washed thoroughly.
- Be alert to abnormal symptoms and seek medical attention in time
If the following symptoms occur, please consult a doctor in time: cough; expectation; fever (body temperature> 38℃); difficulty breathing during daily activities or rest; pain when breathing deeply, rapid heartbeat; suddenly worsening after a cold or flu improves; chills.
When there are the above conditions, reduced lung function will lead to hypoxia, causing a decrease in blood oxygen saturation.
There is a blood pulse oximeter at home, which can continuously observe the physical condition. If the blood oxygen saturation continues to drop, it is recommended to go to the hospital immediately.
