The number of COVID-19 cases is continuing to skyrocket in developing countries like India. But due to various reasons, the Government had to relax certain restrictions that were imposed earlier. But does that mean that it does not exist anymore? 

First Case in India

The first case of COVID-19 was reported on January 30th, 2020 in India. When we heard that there is a virus outbreak somewhere in China, a place called Wuhan, it gave shivers to us. The virus started spreading worldwide. Many countries imposed complete lockdown to control the spread of this virus because there is no medication or vaccine available. The general public was still thinking that this is an epidemic and need no special attention.

Lockdown in India

The Government had to impose Lockdown in a strict manner and the number of cases still kept shooting. The number of COVID-19 cases is still on the rise after imposing many restrictions. But the mindset of a vast majority has changed to see the COVID-19 to be too normalized. It is good that it is made a mandate to wear a mask throughout the nation. Social Distancing was the new norm. 

Times Now

Novel CoronaVirus is still existing and spreading vastly. With all this in place, people feel shy/ashamed to tell their family or Government when they find any symptoms of COVID-19. This leads to spreading the virus to their own family members and to their own community.

There is nothing to be ashamed of when you are affected by CoronaVirus. It is not something that you had brought into your lives. It happened to you. So when you find yourself with the following symptoms of COVID-19 such as:

  1. Dry Cough
  2. Fever
  3. Breathing Difficulty
  4. Inability to smell or taste food

Take the following immediate actions.

#1 Self-isolation

Isolate yourself from your family, children and people in their old age. This avoids the spread of Coronavirus in your circle and community. 

#2 Call healthcare provider

Call your health care provider or doctor while in self-isolation. Be observed keenly by a doctor for any betterment or symptoms that are getting any worse. If the symptoms are becoming worse, get immediate medical attention

#3  Get immediate medical attention

There is nothing more to think. You will be tested for COVID-19. You will be provided with the necessary medical attention. 

Do not hesitate at any cost. Be safe and help everyone be healthy and safe!
