It’s already been a year since COVID – 19 pandemic struck the globe and people are learning new ways to deal with it every day, both in terms of recovery and precaution. With the disease’s long-lasting consequences, one must learn the importance of being cautious and careful before and after recovery.
After recovery, the journey of “NEW NORMAL” begins. There are chances that the person may get re-infected, or spread the virus to people around, hence it is important to learn the preventive measures to be taken even after recovering from the Novel Coronavirus.
Basic HYGIENE practice
A fundamental hygiene practice should be followed by recovered patients. From the use of hand sanitizers to frequent hand washing and proper disposal of masks have to be followed.
Remember, IMMUNITY is everything
As the Novel Coronavirus directly attacks the immune system, the human body tends to give away a certain part of immunity. Thus, it is important to continue wearing a mask and maintaining social distancing even after recovery. Drinking kadha and turmeric milk help boost immunity.
A NUTRITIOUS eating routine
Coronavirus stresses and drains the body, taking away its energy! To recuperate the loss of energy, having meals packed with nutrition becomes very important. Consumption of organic products, vegetables, and fruits is always recommended for a speedy recovery.
Remember, your body has just started recovering, so balance it with food that is well-cooked, simple, and easy to process for the body.
SELF-ISOLATION for a while
Even after recovering from the virus, self-isolate yourself for at least 7 days. Do not bounce back to routine as soon as your test is negative. Give yourself some time! Also, to protect other family members follow some basic preventive measures like,
Practice MEDITATION & EXERCISE
Regular practice of yoga and exercise for at least 30 minutes should be included in the daily routine.
Regular HEALTH ASSESSMENT
Keep monitoring your temperature (thermometer), oxygen saturation (Pulse oximeter), pulse rate and signs of lethargy, drowsiness, or breathlessness. In case of any variation, please contact the Hospital immediately.
With the aforementioned preventive measures, make space for you and others in the recovery journey and win the battle together!Share:
