What to do if you test positive for COVID-19

Have you tested positive for COVID-19 ? Truth is, you may be worried for yourself and others you live with or have recently spent time with but not to worry here are some tips you may choose to take to ensure you have the best chance for recovery and to help reduce your chance of infecting others.

If you are confirmed positive COVID-19 test, you are most likely being sent home to rest, stay away from others, and recover. This will be the case for more than 95% of people, as their symptoms do not require hospitalization. Some patients have a higher risk for complications and will be monitored extra closely.

Symptoms tend to go away for most people as the body works to recover from COVID-19 infection, which usually takes two or three weeks.

Ten days after coronavirus symptoms first appeared and you don’t have any more symptoms, research suggests most people are no longer able to infect others and may end isolation.

You can find more information on what to do if you are sick from the Nigeria Center for Disease Control
