With the current lockdown to contain the coronavirus outbreak in India, the routine process of going to one’s nearest doctor for a consultation has become impossible. Hence, while sitting at home, if one feels unwell, there is both a sense of helplessness in getting expert medical help and a fear of having contracted COVID-19. To address these concerns, while at the same time helping to minimize the burden of the coronavirus pandemic on the Indian healthcare system, Pristyn Care has set up an end-to-end ecosystem of tele-medicine and COVID-19 testing.

The health-tech company has established a control room for addressing any query related to COIVID-19 through the dedicated helpline number 801 000 2266. The control room functions as per protocols of WHO and the Ministry of Health to profile high-risk segments of the population. The company has also launched telemedicine through online consultations to address generic queries of cough, cold, fever, aches and pains, etc. and prescribe suitable treatment through online prescriptions. Post initial consultations, the patients can be assisted in getting diagnostic tests done and also be redirected, if required, to in-house specialists across ENT, Gynaecology, Urology, Vascular and General Surgery.

These online consultations will help people seek advice from experts without having to travel, thereby reducing the risks of exposure and spread. Telemedicine will act as a safety valve for India’s strained healthcare system, thereby increasing the citizen’s safety and bolstering the workforce to screen many more patients than in face-to-face encounters.

Pristyn Care has also partnered with over 50 laboratories across Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad to conduct COVID-19 detection tests, authorized by the Government of India and The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). The test can be booked on the website or on call post an online doctor consultation. Patients can provide samples at their nearest lab or certified phlebotomists can collect them from the patients’ homes. The report will be made available to the patients within 24-48 hours of the sample collection. This capability will act as the first line of defense, helping curb overcrowding at hospitals and clinics.

Launching the new business capability, Harsimarbir Singh, Co-founder, Pristyn Care said, “Since people are unable to visit doctors, they resort to either self-diagnosing their symptoms or self-medicating, both of which can be detrimental to their health. We must inculcate the habit of consulting specialists for health issues. From online consultation to getting tested to providing hospitalisation if required, we at Pristyn Care have developed a full stack of healthcare services to serve patients. So, anybody can call our helplines and reach out to our internal team of doctors for consultation.”

Pristyn Care has over 80 clinics and 350 partner hospitals across 17 cities (7 Tier-1 and 10 Tier-2 cities), with General Physicians and Surgeons who have expertise across General Surgery (Laser and Laparoscopic specialists), Vascular surgeries, ENT, Gynaecology, and Urology. The healthcare company has successfully treated over 30,000 patients till date.

शोधकर्ताओं का कहना है कि कोरोना से ठीक होने वाले मरीज लक्षण समाप्त होने के बाद भी कम से कम 8 दिन तक संक्रमण फैला सकते हैं, जिसके बाद 14 दिनों तक क्वरांइटन में रखने को लेकर संदेह होने लगा है। चीन के साइंटिस्ट ने कोरोना से पीड़ित रहने वाले 16 मरीजों पर एक अध्ययन में यह भी पता लगाया कि इनके ठीक होने पर लक्षण भले ही दिखाई देना बंद हो गए लेकिन ये उनके भीतर कम से कम आठ और दिन रहे थे।

corona

अध्ययन के मुताबिक, कोरोना के लक्षण औसतन 5 दिन तक दिखाई देते हैं और कोरोना करीब सात दिनों तक अपनी चरम सीमा पर रहता है। लेकिन हाल ही में सामने आए शोध में इस बात का खुलासा हुआ है कि ये इंसान के भीतर और आठ दिन तक रहता है। जिसके बाद इस वायरस के किसी व्यक्ति में रहने की अवधि 20 दिन हो चुकी है और 14 दिन का क्वरांटइन पीरियड बहुत कम पड़ सकता है।

अमेरिकन जर्नल ऑफ रेस्पिरेटरी एंड क्रिटिकल केयर मेडिसिन में प्रकाशित अध्ययन के मुताबिक, बीजिंग के ट्रीटमेंट सेंटर ऑफ पीएलए जनरल हॉस्पिटल के शोधकर्ताओं ने 35 साल के औसत उम्र के मरीजों से प्राप्त डेटा का विश्लेषण किया।

याले स्कूल ऑफ मेडिसिन के डिपार्टमेंट ऑफ मेडिसिन के प्लमोनरी क्रिटिकल केयर एंड स्लीप मेडिसिन सेक्शन के इंसट्रक्टर ऑफ मेडिसिन और अध्ययन के सह-लेखक पीएचडी लोकेश शर्मा का कहना है कि हमारे अध्ययन के ये महत्वपूर्ण निष्कर्ष उन आधे मरीजों से प्राप्त हुए हैं, जिनके लक्षण समाप्त हो गए थे और उनमें वायरस खत्म होने की पुष्टि की जा चुकी थी। उनके मुताबिक, अधिक गंभीर संक्रमण और भी लंबे समय तक रह सकता है।

बीजिंग के चाइनीज पीएलए जनरल हॉस्पिटल के प्लमोनरी एंड क्रिटिकल केयर मेडिसिन कॉलेज में प्रोफेसर एमडी लिक्सिन शी का कहना है कि अगर आपको कोरोना के हल्के लक्षण भी थे और आप घर में रह रहे हैं तो भले ही आप लोगों को संक्रमित न करें लेकिन ठीक होने के बाद अपना क्वरांटाइन समय दो सप्ताह के लिए थोड़ा बढ़ा दें। ऐसा करने से आप दूसरे लोगों को संक्रमित नहीं करेंगे।

इस अध्ययन ने पूरे मेडिकल जगत को चेतावनी दी है कि कोरोना के मरीज लक्षणों से उबरने के बाद भी संक्रामक हो सकते हैं इसलिए हाल ही में उबरे लोगों का सावधानी पूर्वक ध्यान रखें जैसा कि लक्षण वाले मरीजों का किया जाता है। हालांकि डॉ. शी का कहना है कि फिलहाल इस पर और अध्ययन किए जाने की जरूरत है कि क्या ठीक होने का बाद भी कोरोना के मरीज बाद में संक्रमण फैला सकते हैं या नहीं।

विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन (डब्ल्यूएचओ) के आंकड़ों से पता चलता है कि इस बीमारी का सबसे आम लक्षण बुखार है, जो 87.9 प्रतिशत मामलों में मौजूद था। वहीं दूसरा सबसे आम लक्षण है सूखी खांसी (67.7 प्रतिशत मामले), और तीसरा लक्षण है थकान (38.1 प्रतिशत)। इसके अलावा पूरे शरीर में दर्द, सिरदर्द और गले में खराश COVID-19 के सामान्य लक्षण थे। डेटा भी पाया गया कि दस्त कोरोना के मरीजों में एक दुर्लभ लक्षण था।

कोरोना वायरस से बचाव के तरीके (How to Prevent coronavirus)

इंफेक्शन से बचने के लिए आप डब्ल्यूएचओ (WHO) के इन सुझाव को अपना सकते हैं। इसके साथ ही आपको इन बातों का ध्यान रखना चाहिए।

  • अपने हाथ को साफ रखें। हाथों को साफ करने के लिए अल्कोहल बेस्ड सैनिटाइजर या फिर साबुन और पानी से धोएं।
  • छींक और खांसी के वक्त अपने मुंह को कोहनी से ढकें। इसके अलावा अपने मुंह और नाक को टिशू पेपर या रूमाल से ढकें।
  • सर्दी और फ्लू के लक्षण दिखाई देने पर डॉक्टर से मिलें।
  • इस स्थिति में इंफेक्शन से बचने के लिए लोगों के साथ निकट संपर्क से बचें।
  • ठीक से पका हुए मांस का ही सेवन करें ।
  • जानवरों के सीधे संपर्क में आने से बचें।

In these tough and uncertain times, it is very important to take part in things that help relieve your stress. Watering plants is on such thing for these TV actors.

Aparna Dixit: I have always been someone who loves spending time in the house. Now, given the condition, everyone has to stay in the house, I am actually doing all the things I enjoy. I am spending peaceful evenings with 90’s music, sitting by my window, sipping a hot cup of coffee and taking care of my plants. My mornings start with watering my plants and doing some yoga.

Amrita Prakash : Nature serves us endlessly and unconditionally. While all of us appreciate nature, I think it’s important to make the time to serve nature, too. Like any other relationship, it must be nurtured with love.

Mohit Malhotra : I am home bound in Delhi with my mother. I like to take care of plants here. Green plants give positivity.

Arjun Bijlani : I love potted plants. Greenery is a must at home. My son Ayan and I love to water plants. The plants not only beautify the area but also give positive energy.

Sharad Malhotra : I have grown-up watching my mom water plants at home in Kolkata. I always loved watering plants. I have limited potted plants in my home in Mumbai but I enjoy taking care of them. Plants give oxygen and one must have plants at home. I get positive vibes from plants.

Rishina Kandhari : Plants purify the air. I always have had plants at home. My mother taught me the value of plants and I have taught the same to my daughter.

TV

With the outbreak of the Corona Virus epidemic and cases being reported, shootings of televisions serials, web-series, and films have been stopped till March 31st as a result of health advisory. Also, cinema halls, malls, and gyms have been shut, along with a ban on all other entertainment events. Here is how these TV actors are keeping themselves busy.

Kettan Singh: I have other commitments like Radio and Podcasts so I work on those scripts from home. I am a Gym addict, so yes I am missing the gym. But a 45 min brisk walk in the evening is what I do. I can’t work out at home at all. It’s been some time I haven’t checked on my 3 Guitars so I’ll be changing the strings, tuning them. And ever since I moved to my new place, my Piano is still wrapped so I will probably get that out and continue my practice.

Amrita Prakash: Firstly, this is not a holiday or a vacation and people need to stop treating it like one. I see so many posts of corporate employees who are on a ‘work from home’, out at pubs and bars with friends. It’s ridiculous and defeats the purpose and is a disservice to society. Your employer is taking a hit and giving you leave because ‘Social Distancing’ is the need of the hour. Stop treating it like it’s a paid vacation and realize that if you don’t care about your own life–that’s fine.

But it isn’t OK to not care about your family, neighbors, colleagues, friends and the people of your city. Also, it’s important to extend the same humane treatment to your house, kitchen and other staff. Give them time off, like you expect your employer to give you. I have self-quarantined myself since 19th March.

Vikas Sethi: Maintain hygiene and be aware of the situation around you is what I will advise everyone. I am just staying at home, watching the news and keeping my family safe.

Aniruddh Dave: I think fitness is a secondary thing when it comes to your overall health, the pandemic is creating a lot of chaos, so actually until the situation comes under control it’s better to be at your place. It’s a good time to be at home, spend time with your family, watch good films and get the feel of summer vacations. I am interacting with my Twitter family, talking on the situation, circumstances of the world. I am also talking to my relatives on the phone, watching drama series.

Himanshu Malhotra: The situation is definitely tough. A few days back, I went for a walk in the morning to the beach but it was shut. I ended up taking a walk in my building itself, in the morning. I think a walk is essential to keep fit. You can walk up and down the stairs in your building. Fortunately, since we are at home, we get to eat home-cooked food which is absolutely nutritious and healthy and delicious.

So, your health and fitness can easily be maintained during this time. The point is because man being a social animal, you always want to move out of the house, especially in a city like Mumbai. We are so used to going out of the house for meetings and screen tests and talking to people. I will be creating a lot of videos for my initiative Share and Grow at home. I will be doing a lot of reading. My wife, Amruta is always watching Netflix and Amazon.

Shweta Rohira: Since we all have come to a standstill, I think it’s the universe’s way of putting us into an internal vacation. I am going to use this time for meditation, painting, reading a book and most importantly relaxing and rejuvenating myself mentally.

Arjun Bijlani: Currently, I’m not shooting for any show or music video. The promotions related to the web series “State of Seige” has come to a halt. I also learned that two of the overseas events I was supposed to be a part of have been called off. Now that I have ample time, I spend my free time playing board games with my son Ayaan and wife Neha.

I’m also trying my hand at cooking different cuisines and am making everyone at home try my preparations. My son always gives me honest feedback, but I guess my wife Neha is a little biased and always praises the dish, as she wants me to cook so that she gets a break from cooking.

Kunal Thakur: I hope we get a solution for this virus very soon. When it comes to fitness, I am working out at home as I have all the equipment. I am watching many movies which I haven’t watched as yet. I am making sure to use the sanitizer regularly and eat fresh and healthy food cooked by myself. There are a lot of things to do at home, you can play music, do yoga.

Shivin Narang: It’s one of the kind situations which we are seeing once in our lifetime. I have never seen anything like this. It’s one the biggest things in the world, nothing else matters at this point of time; no shootings, no competition, right now the only thing is survival and to be safe. This is the time we’re we care more about our life, our loved ones, and our nature.

I am with my family and my loved ones. I am avoiding public places and right now I am on vacation mode. I am not dieting these days and am eating all my favourite foods. When it comes to fitness, I am walking in my colony lawn and doing some exercises.

Parull Chaudhry: I have an eye infection since about a week and from the 19th, we are on a forced holiday. I will just hope that my eye gets better, definitely, it will be a respite. I will rest it out. I anyways workout at home. I do yoga at home, we have a beautiful terrace where I work out. I have my basic gym equipment’s at home so I will continue my workout. My workout will not get affected.

I will spend some quality time with my parents. I like to paint too and I have done a lot of paintings. I still have to finish a painting for my bedroom, so probably I will do that. I could edit my YouTube videos ones my eye gets better as I am an active YouTuber.

Sanjay Gandhi: Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, all shoots in Bollywood and TV have been cancelled. My fitness mantra is going for a long walk on the beach because it’s very close to my sea-facing home and spending good time with my daughter. When you are doing a show, it’s very rare that you get a long holiday. At the same time, it’s needed to take precautions for being healthy.

Sanjay Gagnani: A couple decades back when we didn’t have the internet, we didn’t go to the mall every couple of days or watch films, all we used to do is spend time with our families and ourselves by sleeping on time, waking up on time, taking care of our health. I am going to wake up when my body allows rather than putting an alarm. I am going to take it easy by spending time with my family, my pets, by having good food, playing sports, dancing at home, watching web series.

Vijayendra Kumeria: Precaution is better than cure and I am fully in support of this. I have already thought of what I will do in these few days. I’ll get to spend a lot of time with my family after a long time as I have been keeping busy. I will play a lot with my daughter. I have asked my yoga and functional trainers to come home and train me. l will also take care of my diet. I love to write as well so I will dedicate some time to it as well.

Rishina Kandhari: I am spending my time with family, watching Netflix, reading books, learning how to play the guitar, playing with my pets, experimenting with new cuisines and engaging in light workout at home. I can’t travel but going on a virtual tour online to learn about the world and making a list of places to travel when all is well.

Covid19 has had a big impact on everyone’s life and celebrities are no exception.

Actor Sanjay Gandhi whom we have last seen in Naagin 4 shares his view on this dangerous virus. He says,” COVID19 has an advantage and disadvantage. The good part is that people have started valuing their personal life a lot. Earlier people were only running and had no time for their families but now they have all the time for their family life. So they should be thankful for this quality time.

The bad part is that our social life has come to an end now. We can’t go out, meet people, and even going out for our work is ruled out. The quarantine effect will continue in our lifestyle and people will learn to live with social distance.” So what is your greatest learning from this? ”The whole world got shattered in just a few months.

It is a lesson to all of us that we should all have a proper financial backup. One should spend less and save money. Sitting at home is something that I have experienced in the past as well. As an actor, I have dealt with the struggle when I was out of work and used to be at home. But now this scenario is different. I have my mom and my daughter with me. I have responsibilities and hope this situation settles down soon.“

Sanjay also conveys one positive message for all. “Do not panic and stay at home. Be positive and think positive. And now onwards please save money so that you can handle any situation under crisis.”

सेंटर फॉर डिजीजी कंट्रोल एंड प्रिवेंशन(सीडीसी) ने भी बच्चों और बुजुर्गों का खासा ख्याल रखने की सलाह दी है। साथ ही हालात को देखते हुए सीडीसी ने कई सुझाव भी दिए हैं कि कैसे आप अपने बच्चों का ध्यान रख सकते हैं।

बच्चे हों या फिर बुजुर्ग दोनों को ही बार-बार हाथ धोने चाहिए। साथ ही आप उन्हें समझाएं कि कैसे हाथ को साथ रखकर और हाथ को बार-बार साबुन से धो कर अपने आपको कोरोना वायरस से दूर रख सकते हैं।

बच्चों को Infected Person से रखें दूर

कोरोना वायरस के लक्षण आम वायरल की तरह ही हैं, जिसका तुरंत पता लगाना काफी मुश्किल है। इसलिए जिन लोगों में आपको खांसी, बुखार, सर्दी या जुकाम जैसे लक्षण दिखें उन लोगों से आपको अपने बच्चों को दूर ही रखना चाहिए। आपको बता दें कि ये वायरस किसी भी व्यक्ति से किसी भी व्यक्ति में प्रवेश कर सकते हैं।

बच्चों को Mask लगाने के लिए कहें

आप अपने बच्चों को मास्क हमेशा लगाने के लिए कहें, खासकर तब जब आपका बच्चा घर के बाहर निकल रहा हो। इसके साथ ही कोशिश करें कि बच्चे बिना किसी वजह घर के बाहर न जाएं साथ ही भीड़भाड़ वाली जगह पर जाने से बचें। इसके अलावा बाहर की किसी भी चीज को छूने से आप बच्चों को रोकें।

Chinese President Xi Jinping ने बीते शुक्रवार को US President Donald Trump से कहा कि चीन और अमेरिका मिलकर COVID-19 pandemic से लडाई करें।

Trump के हां कहने के बाद US एक तरह से China के सामने झुक गया है। गौरतलब है कि coronavirus के मामले तेजी से बढने के बाद से दोनों देशों के बीच Word War जारी है और दोनों एक दूसरे पर आरोप लगा रहे थे। इसका जिक्र हमने अपनी एक खबर COVID-19 के बाद USA और China आमने सामने में किया था।

Trump से फोन पर बात करते हुए Xi ने कहा कि bilateral relations इस वक्त नाजुक मोड पर हैं और दोनों देशों को एक दूसरे के साथ cooperation से कुछ प्राप्त कर सकते हैं।

इस वक्त cooperation ही दोनों पक्षों के लिए बेहतर होगा। उन्होंने कहा कि संयुक्त epidemic containment के लिए दोनों पक्षों में संयुक्त प्रयास बढाने का आह्वान किया और भविष्य में China-US के संबधों में non-confrontation, non-conflict, mutual respect and win-win cooperation की आशा की।

The US president ने कहा कि यह सुनिश्चित करेंगे कि दोनों देश आपसी असहमति को दूर कर सकें और epidemic नियंत्रण करने में cooperation प्रदान कर सकें। उन्होंने providing medical supplies के लिए China की तारीफ की और कहा कि दोनों देशों के दोनों देशों को healthcare में प्रभावी आदान-प्रदान और effective pharmaceuticals के अनुसंधान और विकास में सहयोग करना चाहिए।

Trump ने social media पर फोन कॉल के बाद कहा कि बातचीत “very good” रही और “China” इस virus के संबंध में मजबूत समझ विकसित कर चुका है और हम साथ मिलकर काम कर रहे हैं।

US foreign policy के Senior researcher Yuan Zheng ने कहा कि pandemic के प्रकोप के बाद दोनों देशों के नेताओं के बीच तनाव को कम करने में मदद की है और इसके बाद China-US संबंधों का प्रारंभिक बिंदु साबित हो सकता है।

उन्होंने कहा दोनों देशों के बीच Cooperation से बेहतरीन global strategic balance और global governance system को बेहतर बनाने में मददगार साबित होगा। अंतत: कहा जा सकता है कि United States ने अमेरिका में COVID-19 pandemic के बाद China के सामने घुटने टेक दिये हैं और इस वायरस से दुनिया के मुक्त होने के बाद वैश्वि​क पटल पर एक नया राजनीतिक समीकरण देखने को मिल सकता है।
