COVID 19 – At our doorstep!

There may be a wee bit of trepidation when one switches on the television, opens one’s phone, reaches for the daily newspaper, what with the overload of information and news on Coronavirus. My advice is to just disregard any coronavirus news, pay no attention to anything other than the simple measures for prevention that have remained virtually unchanged since the beginning of the pandemic, maybe just got a little more refined.

The Three C’s for prevention in July 2020

There are cases occurring everywhere now. Well, India is the second largest country in the world, so it stands to reason , right….? Do not worry, at this point of time, experience of the past few months has found that the vast majority of cases are asymptomatic and in those who become symptomatic, the majority get ok sooner than later. Complications do occur, but then they do so in many other diseases too. All you can do, and all you need to do at this juncture (Sep 2020) is to “Stay Calm, and Be Cool” and “Prevent to Stay Safe”.

For those who are living in residential Societies, an updated advisory is placed here, for ease of reference.

In case you have households that need to be quarantined (those who have exposure but no cases), and those that need to be isolated (those who have cases), please comply with local administrative instructions as may be applicable to your city. A few generic info flyers are placed here for your ease of reference:

Part 1 and 2 – Guidelines for Home Isolation

We cannot escape being exposed to the virus, being a pandemic, implying widely spread, with transmission happening, though not very efficient. (Dont bother yourself with epidemiological terms like R0 etc).

However, what we can do is simply adhere to what is the expected behaviour required during this New Normal.
