While there is currently no cure for COVID-19, you may take some medicine to relieve mild symptoms:
To date no transmission of active COVID-19 (virus that can cause infection) through breast milk and breastfeeding. There is no reason to avoid or stop breastfeeding. You are encouraged to wear a face mask appropriately, and frequently wash/ sanitize your hands while breastfeeding.
It is very important to have at hand the telephone numbers of your local community healthcare worker (umujyanama w’ubuzima, CHW), Isibo and Cell leaders, as they are an integral part of COVID-19 response in Rwanda. It is very encouraged that you exchange news related to your illness on daily basis, and they might also be able to answer to all queries that you might have. Feel free to limit the number of follow-up phone calls you want to receive on daily basis. COVID-19 care in Rwanda is now decentralized from the National level to the community level, and MoH and RBC are working closely with these structures that are close to your homes to ensure you remain safe and recover from COVID-19 as quick as possible.
