Those with milder symptoms may be sent home to minimize the risk of getting more sick inside the hospital. Caregivers should ensure that the patient is properly segregated from the rest of the household to avoid spreading the disease.
It is absolutely important to monitor the patient’s recovery through consistent updates to your local healthcare provider. Watch out for unusual symptoms and immediately rush the patient to your nearest hospital should an emergency arise.
Limit your exposure to the patient and check yourself for possible symptoms like fever, dry cough, sore throat, and shortness of breath. Always wear protective gear, practice frequent handwashing, and follow other safety health protocols set by the WHO and your local health department.
