COVID-19, also called the novel (as in “new”) coronavirus, is a disease that’s caused a global pandemic. It’s highly contagious. Many of the people who have gotten it are asymptomatic, meaning that they have no symptoms and don’t even know that they’re carriers.
The virus spreads through discharge from the nose or droplets of saliva released when coughing or sneezing. The active virus can survive in the air for up to three hours and on infected surfaces for days.
While the vast majority of people infected with COVID-19 experience mild to moderate symptoms, for some, the disease is life-endangering. People already suffering from underlying health conditions and are 65 and older are most at risk of developing severe and fatal symptoms.
Dr. Jensen has successfully treated over 1,250 COVID-19 patients since the start of the pandemic, offering them the expert medical care that has kept them from having to go to a hospital.
Among the most significant challenges facing medical professionals when diagnosing COVID-19 is the virus’s broad range of symptoms — and that many people show no symptoms at all.
Symptoms typically appear within 14 days of exposure to the COVID-19 coronavirus. The symptoms include:
Dr. Jensen’s convenient concierge telehealth practice allows you to schedule an appointment with him and receive medical attention without leaving your home.
If you find it hard to breathe, feel a pain in your chest, or notice a blue tint to your lips, call 911 or go to an emergency room right away.
In many cases, COVID-19 symptoms go away after two weeks with no treatment necessary. Some people need help with uncomfortable symptoms, while others need comprehensive medical care up to and including a stay in an intensive care unit (ICU).
Dr. Jensen offers a range of COVID-19 treatments. He creates individualized care plans based on your symptoms, health history, age, and other factors.
Treatments can include specialized medicine, prescription pain relievers, over-the-counter medicine like acetaminophen (Tylenol®) or ibuprofen (Motrin®), medication to treat complications caused by the disease, and medicine to support your body’s immune system.
He also recommends you drink plenty of fluids and get plenty of rest.
Partnering with a telehealth provider like Dr. Jensen means you can stay on top of your COVID-19 treatment from the comfort of your home. This allows you to continue resting and reduces the risk of you spreading the disease.
