Pandemic Wave – Let it pass you by

There is a lot of conjecture, a lot of speculation, and indeed, a lot of erudite folks educated mostly through social media, who are tossing about their views on the ongoing pandemic and its epidemiological trends. So, should you care?

Well, wise is the person who heeds the lessons that life offers ever so often. While waiting for an effective vaccine may be akin to waiting for Godot, let us not get swayed by the rhetoric all around.

Irrespective of whether we need to anticipate second or third waves or whatever, of the ongoing pandemic, please be reassured that current evidence still reaffirms that preventive measures remain the same, i.e. Avoid Crowds, Crowded Places and Close Contact. Stay Masked, and Wash hands frequently.   

A ready reckoner of the symptoms which should warrant seeking medical attention is as below.   There are many other symptoms which may not be mentioned here. Just keep your wits about you, and confer with your friendly health care provider on telephone when you are in doubt and are unwell.

Stay calm and Stay aware. Do not neglect symptoms.   

And, do not unnecessarily get yourself tested unless it is required to get tested.   

Rely only on authentic sources of information and do not be swayed by social media misinformation.
