Why would I need COVID-19 care?

You may need the COVID-19 care services available at Optimal Healthcare Anywhere if you experience symptoms of an infection that you can’t manage on your own.

COVID-19 is a contagious viral infection that spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets that form when you cough, speak, or laugh. The infection causes a variety of symptoms that affect your respiratory function and your physical health.

Dr. Ali provides diagnostic evaluations and customized treatment plans for adults with COVID-19. He meets with you through an online telehealth platform that you access through your mobile device or computer, so you don’t have to travel away from home.

When should I schedule a COVID-19 care appointment?

You should schedule a COVID-19 care appointment at Optimal Healthcare Anywhere if you develop symptoms of the infection after coming into contact with an infected person. Symptoms can include:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Shortness of breath
  • Muscle aches
  • Loss of smell or taste

COVID-19 symptoms can vary from person to person, so you may experience other unusual symptoms. To prevent the spread of the virus to others, be sure to self-isolate until you get a COVID-19 test to confirm an infection.

Dr. Ali can refer you to a facility for testing and provide guidance and treatment if you get a positive result. If you have severe shortness of breath, he can help with your admission to a hospital for immediate medical care.

What treatments are involved with COVID-19 care?

Your treatment plan for COVID-19 focuses on easing your existing symptoms to help you feel more comfortable. Dr. Ali may recommend over-the-counter medications to treat a cough, sore throat, and runny nose. You should also drink lots of fluids and rest as much as possible.

In early stages of an infection, you may be a candidate for antiviral medications that stop the virus from multiplying to prevent serious illness. Antivirals are an option for those at increased risk for COVID-19 complications. They are most effective if you can take them within five days of the start of your symptoms.

If you have severe shortness of breath, Dr. Ali can admit you to a local hospital for specialized medical care that may include supplemental oxygen therapy or the use of a ventilator.

To prevent additional COVID-19 infections, you should ensure you’re updated on vaccinations and boosters.
