DO’S and DON’TS during the CoVID – 19 pandemic

26 Mar, 2020

A pandemic is a disease that has spread across a large region, for instance multiple continents, or worldwide.  

COVID-19 is the name of the respiratory illness caused by the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.

PREVENTION DURING COVID – 19 PANDEMIC!

There are certain Homeopathic medicines which can help in preventing an infection. These medicines are listed after a thorough study of the symptoms of the patients who suffered from coronavirus across the globe. Different physicians recommend different medicines. Homeopathy is based on an individualistic approach; hence I strongly recommend that instead of self-medication, do talk to your Homeopathic physician before consuming them.

The medicines are Arsenic Album, Justicia Adhatoda, Camphora, Bryonia, Lycopodium

Arsenic Album is also suggested by the Ministry of AYUSH, India. 

Homeopathy is wholly capable of satisfying the therapeutic demands of any infections and viruses better than any other system or school of medicine.

BUSTING SOME MYTHS

  • Spraying chlorine or alcohol on skin kills viruses in the body

It can cause harm if it enters the eyes or mouth. You can use these chemicals to disinfect surfaces, but do not use them on your skin. These products cannot kill viruses within the body.

  • Only older adults and young people are at risk

Coronavirus can infect people of any age. Older individuals with preexisting health conditions, such as diabetes or asthma, are more likely to become severely ill.

  • COVID-19 is just like the flu

Coronavirus causes illness that has flu-like symptoms – aches, fever, and cough. Both COVID-19 and flu can be mild, severe, or, in rare cases, fatal. Both can also lead to pneumonia.

  • Everyone with COVID-19 dies

This statement is untrue. In a recent report, the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention concluded that 80.9% of COVID-19 cases were mild.

  • Face masks protect against coronavirus

Healthcare workers use professional face masks, which fit tightly around the face, to protect them against infection. However, disposable face masks are unlikely to provide such protection. As these masks do not fit neatly against the face, droplets can still enter mouth and nose. Also, if someone has a respiratory illness, wearing a mask can help protect others from becoming infected. Also, when using a mask, it is important to use and dispose of it properly.

  • You can protect yourself by gargling bleach

There are no circumstances in which gargling bleach might benefit your health. Bleach is corrosive and can cause serious damage.

  • Antibiotics kill coronavirus

Antibiotics only kill bacteria; they do not kill viruses.

  • Home remedies can cure and protect against COVID-19

No home remedies can protect against COVID-19, including vitamin C, essential oils, silver colloid, sesame oil, garlic, and sipping water every 15 minutes. The best approach is to adopt a good hand washing regimen and to avoid places where there may be unwell people.

  • Coronavirus is the deadliest virus known to man

Although Coronavirus does appear to be more serious than influenza, it is not the deadliest virus that people have faced. Others, such as Ebola, have higher mortality rates.
