Doctors recommend self-isolation and home quarantine, in case you experience even mild symptoms. This is for the benefit of one and all at the moment, especially because coronavirus is a contagious infection. Coronavirus can spread through contaminated droplets spread by coughing or sneezing, or by contact with contaminated hands, objects or surfaces. The time between a person being exposed to the virus and the time when first symptoms appear is lasts between five to six days and may range from two to 14 days.

This is the reason why a person needs to self-isolate for 14 days in case of experiencing symptoms. Most cases of COVID-19 appear to have spread from people who have symptoms. In one of his recent posts on Instagram, lifestyle coach Luke Coutinho talks about the importance of taking self-isolation and home-quarantine seriously.

"It is advisable for people who had recent travel history and all the people coming from COVID-19 affected areas or have mild symptoms, including mild fever, cough or sore throat," writes Coutinho in his post.
