Covid 19

COVID AWARENESS

In a span of 6 months, we have all familiarized ourselves with the concept of coronavirus. It emerged last year in the city of Wuhan by early December, in China. With Wuhan being the epicenter and the virus crossing nations, the past few months have been of extreme anxiety for all of us. Confined within our houses, we have constantly questioned the norms of social distancing and as to why we must stay cautious of this virus.

This virus has the capability to take control over your bodily functions and slowly cause symptoms such as fatigue, fever and dry coughs. But the most serious among them all are symptoms of difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath, chest pain or pressure, loss of speech or movement. This becomes life threatening as the virus is strong enough to hijack your healthy cells and take command over them. This can in turn lead to a series of other physical issues like an imbalance in the immune response, inflammation causing collateral damage in the body, pneumonia or respiratory distress too.

Our health has to become our topmost priority, be it physical or mental. We have to remain cautious and take necessary steps in order to stay safe. We at Medstar, are prepared to render any service that is required by our patients and fight this deadly battle against the novel coronavirus!

Best Practices

In order to protect ourselves from the coronavirus, here are some of the best practices to put into use!

  • Wash your hands regularly, each time you go outdoors or come in contact with something that has been exposed to the environment outdoors.

  • Sanitize your hands, in order to kill the virus if materials for washing your hand is not accessible.

  • Sanitize any item that you will touch, to kill the virus and prevent any contact with it.

  • Practice social distancing where you keep yourself at least 6 feet away from another individual as this virus is fast spreading and communicable.
