The Covid-19 virus is spread by droplets, these are easily passed from person to person by coughing, sneezing and sharing cups and close contact, especially to vulnerable people who may be at Churton Park Medical Care. As with all cold's and flu, the best thing you can do to recover is rest and treat the symptoms, by staying home from work, school and other people who are unwell.

 

Hand-washing is your first-line of protection, cover your cough (cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow) and keep your hands away from your face.  These proven methods do more than anything to keep you safe. Please click on the link below.

Ways to care for yourself at home are:

  • Rest, allow your body time to get better, this can take 1-3 weeks
  • Keep hydrated, replace fluids you lose because of fever and sweating (drink mainly water and avoid tea, coffee and alcohol)
  • Gargle salt water to sooth a sore throat or make a honey and lemon drink
  • Eat light foods when you are hungry
  • Use a damp cloth to cool your forehead and limbs
  • Shower or bathe regularly and keep bedding clean and dry
  • use paper tissues for runny noses, dispose the tissue in a rubbish bin and wash hands immediately afterwards
  • Open windows and keep the room well ventilated
  • Wipe down surfaces daily with hot soapy water
  • Do not share cups or eating utensils
  • keep at least 1 metre away from others and avoid enclosed spaces such as cars
  • If possible, use a separate bathroom from others in the house. (if sharing a toilet with other members, clean well with disposable cloth and cleaning agent after use).

 

Medication

Influenza is caused by a virus so antibiotics will not help.

Take paracetamol or Ibuprofen to help relieve fever, body aches and headache.

Other medicines such as lozenges or gargles may help to ease symptoms such as a sore throat, runny nose and a cough.

 

If you have:

  • A high fever, that does not come down, especially if you are pregnant
  • Chills or severe shaking
  • Difficulty in breathing or chest pain
  • Purple or bluish discolouration of lips, skin, fingers or toes
  • Seizures or Convulsions
  • Signs of other serious conditions, such as meningococcal disease
