Health Informational Advisories for social media circulation in these COVID pandemic times

Since mid March 2020, there was a perceived requirement for civil society to sort out the chaff from the wheat in light of the surplus of information flooding social media and inundating the poor home bound homebody with irrelevant and confusing information, mostly originating from either NASA, f-CDC, f-WHO (f is for fake), or the Renjhen MinJhin Hospital in China (there is no such hospital) or even some Italian hospital.

So what should the homebound person do? Believe in all that is out there? Or ask someone like me? I am a sifter of news and facts and a distiller of information and at times a translator of evidence. Modest description indeed.

Thus emerged a series of health advisories focused mostly on an urban , urbane, English speaking audience residing in cities of India, in claustrophobic colonies , cloistered within their homes.

These advisories were / are meant for circulation ad lib on social media. My name and contact details are incorporated therein, to ensure that people can reach out to me for any clarification or further information and advice and most importantly, suggestions for future iterations.

Please browse through the collection and download to peruse at leisure or circulate at your discretion. These will be updated with newer advisories as and when released.

Disclaimer : The contents of each advisory were current as on the date of release and have not been revised subsequently. You are solely responsible for any decisions you make based on the contents. There is no intent implied or otherwise, to suggest the advisories to be a replacement for current consultation with a registered medical practitioner for any medical or other ailment.

Please send across any issues (no individual treatment related queries please) you would like me to address.

Be Safe!
