The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday that people can treat a COVID patient with a variety of ways to protect against the disease.
Here are some things to keep in mind.
How long do you need to wait for care?
It depends on how long you’re contagious, CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said.
If you’re sick for weeks, a person with a fever of 103.6 degrees or higher can be admitted to a hospital, but a person who’s fevers of 106 degrees or lower can wait a week or two to be admitted.
People who are fevers greater than 104.4 degrees should be admitted for treatment.
If you’re in the ICU, the first sign of COVID is the cough and the onset of a fever.
A person who has fevers that exceed 102 degrees can have the fever increase to 104 degrees, Frieden added.
People with a COVI-negative infection should wait a minimum of 24 hours after the cough or fever before receiving any treatment.
How do I get a COX-2 test?
The test can be taken by either a blood or urine test, depending on your state.
The test may take about 10 minutes to administer, Friedan said.
If the test shows the presence of COX, you can take a dose of the antibiotic Tylenol or take a blood transfusion to lower your risk of infection, Friedon added.
If there’s no evidence of COVI, your doctor can recommend antibiotic treatment.
Is there a specific test I can take?
There are several types of tests that are administered by a COV-1 test, which can detect the virus and test for antibodies.
These tests can detect COX1 and COX2.
You can also take a COXY test.
A blood test can detect antibodies that are made in the blood, while a urine test is used to test for COX.
The tests can be administered by any test, including blood tests and urine tests.
Who can I call if I have questions about my COVID case?
Anyone can call the CDC’s COVID Hotline at 1-800-CDC-HIV, the national hotline for COVID.gov.
Callers can also email questions to [email protected] or post on the CDC website.
What are the options for patients with COVI?
The CDC has many different options for treating COVID patients.
There’s no clear way to do it.
However, you should see your doctor for a follow-up visit.
If your doctor recommends antibiotics, they can also prescribe those medications.
If someone is under treatment for COVI and is also being treated for COV, they may have more options.
For some people, a course of antibiotics can help, too.
You also should see a doctor if you have:A fever or other signs of infectionA fever of more than 103.4Fever with or without a high temperature of 104.2Fever higher than 104Fever that is worsening or not improvingHow long will it take to get care?
After you’re hospitalized, your physician can assess your COVID situation, and you will likely be treated for the next few days.
You’ll need to see your COV infection specialist to receive the same treatment that was given to you.
