All you need to know about the second wave of Covid-19



All you need to know about the second wave of Covid-19

India is definitely suffering from second wave of Covid-19 and according to experts, the need of restrictions is mandatory because of the wide surge of infected cases across the country. In a recent report, the Health Ministry has also highlighted that the next four weeks (till the end of April) are critical for controlling this surge.

Also, it is important to note that the symptoms are bit different in this phase and it is very prominent for everyone to know them.

As per the doctors, patients are now experiencing unusual symptoms of the virus, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and even developing a cold.

Doctors are suggesting to get tested when in doubt even if there are no classic signs of the virus.

Other symptoms include joint pain, myalgia, gastrointestinal complications, weakness and loss of appetite. A number of gastrointestinal complaints are also being registered right now, more than ever. While gastrointestinal symptoms were not evidently seen at first, doctors now suspect that the virus strongly attaches itself to the high load of ACE2 entry receptors present in the digestive system and unleash a barrage of symptoms- from diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, nausea, pain and vomiting.

Here’s what you need to do: 

The health professionals have prepared the below message for the people, in case you do not want to risk going to the hospital immediately

◉ Symptoms appear from the third day after infection (viral symptoms).

1st phase:

◉ Body pain

◉ Eye pain

◉ Headache

◉ vomiting

◉ Diarrhea

Runny nose or nasal congestion

◉ Decomposition

◉ Burning eyes

◉ Burning when urinating

◉ Feeling feverish

◉ Scuffed throat (sore throat)

It is very important to count the days of symptoms: 1st, 2nd, 3rd.

◉ Take action before the onset of fever.

◉ Be careful, it is very important to drink plenty of fluids, especially purified water. Drink plenty of water to keep your throat moist and to help clear your lungs.

2nd phase: (from 4th to 8th day) inflammatory.

◉ Loss of taste and / or smell

◉ Fatigue with minimal effort

◉ Chest pain (rib cage)

◉ Tightening of the chest

◉ Pain in the lower back (in the kidney area)

➙ The virus attacks nerve endings;

◉ The difference between fatigue and shortness of breath:

• Lack of air is when the person is sitting – without making any effort – and is out of breath;

• Fatigue is when the person moves around to do something simple and feels tired.

➙ It takes a lot of hydration and vitamin C

Covid-19 binds oxygen, so the quality of the blood is poor, with less oxygen.

3rd phase – healing:

◉ On day 9, the healing phase begins, which can last until day 14 (convalescence).

◉ Do not delay treatment, the sooner the better!

It is better to keep these recommendations because prevention is never too much!

• Sit in the sun for 15-20 minutes

• Rest and sleep for at least 7-8 hours.

• Drink 1 and a half liters of water per day

• All food should be hot (not cold).

Keep in mind that the pH of the coronavirus ranges from 5.5 to 8.5.

So all we have to do to eliminate the virus is to eat more alkaline foods, above the acid level of the virus such as –

◉ Bananas, Lime → 9.9 pH

◉ Yellow lemon → 8.2 pH

◉ Avocado – pH 15.6

◉ Garlic – pH 13.2

◉ Mango – pH 8.7

◉ Mandarin – pH 8.5

◉ Pineapple – 12.7 pH

◉ Watercress – 22.7 pH

◉ Oranges – 9.2 pH

How do you know you have Covid-19 ?!

◉ Itchy throat

◉ Dry throat

◉ Dry cough

◉ High temperature

◉ Difficulty breathing

◉ Loss of smell and taste

The hot water you drink is good for your throat. But this corona virus is hidden behind the paranasal sinus of your nose for 3 to 4 days. The hot water we drink does not reach there. After 4 to 5 days this virus that was hidden behind the paranasal sinus reaches your lungs. Then you have trouble breathing.

That’s why it is very important to take steam, which reaches the back of your paranasal sinus. You have to kill this virus in the nose with steam.

At 50°C, this virus becomes disabled i.e. paralyzed. At 60°C this virus becomes so weak that any human immunity system can fight against it. At 70°C this virus dies completely.

This is what steam does.

One who stays at home should take steam once a day. If you go to the market to buy vegetables, take it twice a day. Anyone who meets some people or goes to office should take steam 3 times a day.

According to doctors, Covid -19 can be killed by inhaling steam from the nose and mouth, eliminating the Coronavirus. *If all the people started a steam drive campaign for a week,* *the pandemic will soon end*. So here is a suggestion:

Start the process for a week morning and evening, for just 5 minutes each time, to inhale steam. If all adopt this practice for a week the deadly Covid-19 will be erased.

This practice has no side effects either.

Covaxin protects recipients from severe Covid-19: Researchers

According to the researchers, India’s Covaxin activates key memory components of the human immune system that can continue to protect recipients from severe Covid-19 even after the vaccine-generated anti-viral antibodies have waned.

“We see amazingly robust immune memory responses very similar to those caused by the natural infection,” said Nimesh Gupta, a scientist at the National Institute of Immunology (NII), New Delhi, who led the study.

“These memory responses will outlast and confer protection even the concentrations of the initial antibodies deplete over months,” Gupta said.

Covaxin 77.8% effective against Covid-19

Medical journal Lancet has now stated that the made-in-India vaccine is 77.8 per cent effective against symptomatic Covid, as demonstrated by the phase 3 data. This came out after the World Health Organisation (WHO) approved Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin for emergency use.

The efficacy data demonstrated 70.8 per cent protection against all variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

As per the phase 3 data, Covaxin was found to be 65.2 per cent effective against the Delta variant, 93.4 per cent effective against severe symptomatic Covid and 63.6 per cent effective against asymptomatic Covid.

Dr. Krishna Ella, CMD of Bharat Biotech said, “The peer-review of Covaxin phase III clinical trial data in The Lancet, an authoritative voice in global medicine, validates our commitment to data transparency and meeting the stringent peer-review standards of world-leading medical journals. This accomplishment reflects the undeterred commitment by my team members at Bharat Biotech, our public partners, Indian Council of Medical Research, National Institute of Virology, and the trust imposed by our trial participants who made this happen.”
