Q. Kovid-19 has become severe these days with many different symptoms. what is it exactly?

Firstly, Kovid-19 is a viral infection. A patient may have different symptoms. Patients with mild infections have symptoms such as cough, cold, fever, reddening of the eye, diarrhea, while patients with moderate or severe infection may have shortness of breath or even reduced saturation.

Q. Nowadays people are afraid that their condition may get worse in hospitals, but when should the patient actually go to the hospital?

A Kovid patient should always be alert and alert to the symptoms. The first thing is to get your test done. If you test positive, consult a physician. Do not panic. You are in no hurry to go to the hospital. The doctor will tell you whether your symptoms fall into the mild or severe category.

You can be treated at home or may have to be hospitalized depending on your symptoms. Incidentally, if you have an advanced disease, you need advanced treatment for it. But there is no need to go to the hospital at the moment knowing that you are corona positive.

Q. My next question is about vaccination. Everyone is insisting on vaccination through social media. How important is it?

Vaccination is very important. Its basic purpose is to boost one’s immunity. First it was for frontline workers, then for the over 45 age group and now 18-45. An interval of 4–8 weeks was given between the two doses, which has now been increased to 8–12 weeks.

Vaccination will not prevent you from infection completely but will help in fighting it. Therefore, get vaccinated and follow all preventive measures.

questions. If a person is Kovid positive and is recovering slowly, when should he go for the next test?

A person usually recovers from the virus within 10–14 days. That is why I recommend every patient to get tested 14 days after catching the infection. Most people test the whole negative, some may still be positive. This is because the RTPCR captures the dead virus during the COVID test.

Q. Generally a Kovid patient is said to be admitted to the hospital if the oxygen level falls below 90. What is the role of oxygen for that?

Kovid-19 virus infects a person’s lungs which affects his oxygen level. If you have trouble breathing or your saturation level is falling then you need to be hospitalized and take oxygen therapy.

It depends on how the patient reacts to the oxygen cylinder or any other source. If it maintains a good saturation level on common resources then it is fine otherwise we need to keep it on high flow resources.

Q. Use of resources is one of the most talked about topics these days. Your thoughts on that.

I saw many people waiting for beds in the hospital. First thing, why do your circumstances deteriorate? Many people ignore their symptoms, do not consult a doctor and create problematic situations for themselves. I then say please beware of the symptoms. Also, fight innocuity.

At this time everyone is insecure about their life. But be patient, do not panic. If you test positive then check the intensity of your infection. There is no point in sitting on a hospital bed when you have mild symptoms. The hospital can take better care of you but that bed can be used by a critical disease patient.

> Many people ‘become doctors themselves’. By the time they reach the hospital, it is too late. Your thoughts on that.

Many people opt for local treatment or follow other patient’s treatment. Please do not do this. Everyone has different symptoms. A doctor will give you the necessary medicines and you will be under surveillance. Therefore, regular contact with the doctor is necessary.

Q. What is the role of Remedisvir? Many people were running after it, why is it used?

Remadecivir is basically an anti-viral drug that is FD approved. It is necessary for patients with mild to moderate symptoms. In the advanced stage we require steroids and adjuvant therapies.

> Many doctors are helping Kovid patients. One of them is you. How can people contact you for guidance and other related work?

As a doctor, it is my first duty to help people in such situations. If anyone has any doubt, you can contact me. I will be sure to return. My twitter handle is kaushalapriyanka

> Any message for people?

I pray that our country recovers as soon as possible. Don’t worry, we can fix Kovid-19 but all have to follow precautionary measures. Please wear a mask, maintain social distance, exit your home only in emergency situations.
