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).
◉ Body pain
◉ Eye pain
Runny nose or nasal congestion
◉ 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.
Study: 4th Covid vaccine dose effective in protecting people over 60
As per the new Israeli-led study, the largest healthcare organisation Clalit said fourth dose of Covid vaccine is effective for protecting people aged 60 and above.
The study found that a fourth dose can reduce the possibilities of symptomatic infection, hospitalisation, serious illness and mortality among the elders, Clalit said, Xinhua news agency reported.
In the study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Clalit researchers and their colleagues from Harvard University in Boston analysed data from 182,122 Clalit members, all aged 60 and above, who received Pfizer’s fourth dose.
“The study unequivocally demonstrates that the fourth dose provides effective protection in preventing morbidity,” said Ran Balicer, Director of the Clalit Research Institute.
“It will help every person to make a decision on the fourth vaccine based on their level of personal risk,” he added.

Covid-19: WHO shares post COVID symptoms
In the third year of pandemic, it is not just a fight against COVID, we have another challenge ahead of us i.e. dealing with post-COVID conditions. They are also known as long COVID conditions. With the growing number of cases of long COVID it is confirmed that COVID does not spare any body organ and it affects the biological ecosystem. Fatigue, trouble in breathing and cognitive dysfunction is the most common symptoms.
Fatigue: It is very common response from the body when fighting against any viral infection. It may last for weeks and it is very common symptom seen in all the patients who recovered from COVID.
Trouble in breathing: Even with the minimal physical activity person may have trouble in breathing. It is very common occurrence in the people who have been infected with COVID.
