Ten things to watch out for after a covid-19 patient turns negative
1. Still need to do a good job of respiratory protection
It is currently in a period of the high incidence of respiratory infections in winter, and there are other infectious diseases besides the new crown. After the new crown patient recovers, respiratory protection should still be done well, and the prevention and control standards should not be lowered. Insist on wearing masks in crowded public places and pay attention to hand hygiene.
2. Vaccination is not recommended in the near future after turning negative
According to the current regulations in the technical guidelines for vaccination against the new coronavirus, if a person is diagnosed with the new coronavirus, the time of infection and the time of vaccination against the new coronavirus should be separated by more than 6 months.
3. Several phenomena of recovery
Normal body temperature for more than three days
Symptoms basically disappeared or improved significantly
If there is pneumonia, the re-examination CT shows that pneumonia has been obviously absorbed
The negative nucleic acid test for two consecutive days or Ct value ≥ 35
Three negative antigen tests can replace two negative nucleic acid test results
Coughing after turning negative is the process of "cleaning the battlefield"
Coughing is a process of physical recovery, a process of cleaning the "battlefield" and repairing the airway. Don't worry too much about coughing and expectoration. Drinking plenty of water and humidifying the air can make this process recover more smoothly.
4. Loss of taste and smell is a "transient" symptom
Loss of taste and smell is a "transient" symptom of the new coronavirus infection, especially the infection of the Omicron strain. For the general course of the disease, it will get better on its own in two weeks to one month, so don't worry too much. If there is no improvement for more than a month, it is recommended to go to the hospital for treatment.
5. The symptoms of fatigue and chest tightness can usually be relieved within two weeks
Many people will have high fever, muscle aches, fatigue, profuse sweating, headache and sore throat when infected. After getting sick this time, some people will continue to have some symptoms of fatigue and weakness, and even chest tightness, which usually can be relieved within two weeks.
6. Do not exercise vigorously in the early stage of recovery
After recovery, it will take a week or two for many people to return to their previous physical condition. It is recommended not to exercise strenuously in the early stage of recovery. It is recommended to carry out some moderate and relatively mild exercises, which must be done step by step, and gradually return to the previous activity and workload. Once you are tired, you should take a rest.
7. Antibodies start to be produced after the immune system detects the virus
The body's immune system begins to activate defense functions from the moment it senses that the virus has entered the body. Antibodies begin to be produced after the immune system discovers the virus has invaded, and the antibody level reaches a relatively high level two weeks later, but it is not suddenly produced two weeks later.
8. Within six months, people with normal immune function have a very small risk of reinfection
After being infected with a virus, the protection is between 3 months and more than 6 months. The closer the virus strain is, the longer the protection time is, and the farther the virus strain is, the shorter the protection time is. After half a year, the protection decreases, and the risk of infection does increase when the virus mutates further. But within six months, people with normal immune function have a very small risk of reinfection.
9. The "re-infected" population is basically asymptomatic and the infectivity is extremely low
The "re-infected" population basically has no symptoms, but the nucleic acid is positive, and some patients will have residual symptoms such as coughing. All "Fuyang" patients underwent virus isolation, but no virus was isolated, and no "re-infected" patients were seen to cause further transmission. Therefore, the infectivity after "Fuyang" is extremely low.
