Covid-19: Facts You Need to Know

Covid-19 has spread to 197 countries or territories, infected over 4,00,000 and claimed more than 18,000 lives within a span of three months. So, what is this disease, how does it spread and what should you do to protect yourself?What is COVID-19? The COVID-19 is a contagious disease caused by the newly discovered coronavirus. What makes it so dangerous is its high rate of infection, which has already spread across 197 countries/territories in just three months. Basic symptoms of the disease include fever, dry cough, and tiredness.  How does it spread? The COVID-19 primarily spreads through mucous droplets or saliva of the infected person. When an infected person sneezes or coughs they put others at the risk of coming into contact with these droplets, making basic respiratory etiquette extremely crucial.In response to this ongoing public health emergency, John Hopkins University has developed an interactive dashboard to visualize and track reported cases in real-time.Here are some important preventive measures recommended by the WHO:  Washing hands frequently for at least 20 seconds. Alternatively, using an alcohol-basedsanitizer frequently. Covering your nose and mouth with a bent elbow. Avoiding touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth. Stepping back. Maintain at least onemeter distance from others. If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early. What are the symptoms? Common symptoms include fever, tiredness and dry cough Additional symptoms are shortness of breath, sore throat, aches and pains Rare symptoms like diarrhoea, nausea or a runny nose Are you experiencing any of these symptoms? The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a  COVID-19 assessment bot that can quickly assess the symptoms and risk factors for people worried about infection, and help them manage the illness safely at home. DosDon’tsWash your hands frequently.Touch your eyes, nose or mouth.Cover your nose and mouth while sneezing or coughing.Reuse the same mask or tissue. Dispose of any such protectors immediately after use.Maintain social distancing.Travel unnecessarily or hang out in large groups.Seek early medical care.Ignore your symptoms.What can we do to flatten the curve? The idea of ‘flattening the curve’ is to reduce the number of cases from a steep rise to a gradual pick so that the healthcare system is better equipped to treat patients. Under the present circumstances, the number of infected cases is more than the medical resources available, owing to the alarming rate at which the disease spreads.  Interactive chart on total number of deaths due to Covid-19 as on 26th March 2020.

Countries like Italy,India, and the UK have announced a nationwide lockdown to prevent its rampant growth. China has been under lockdown for over 3 months now. During such episodes, individuals are expected to stay indoors and focus on maintaining their health.Video explainer on social distancing.

To stay calm, focus on self-care, family downtime, and self-growth. Use this time to pick up your old hobbies or find new ones. Read a book, journal, or get online and find new skills that can help you enhance your work productivity. Several courses online are also inclusive of hands-on training and worksheets that can boost your resume.  The WHO remarks on China’s protocol to fight COVID-19, “In the face of a previously unknown virus, China has rolled out perhaps the most ambitious, agile, and aggressive disease containment effort in history.” The country has made tremendous progress and has not had any new cases reported since March 19th.For now, your best defence against the virus is to support your immune system with sleep, exercise, and good nutrition. Most importantly, wash your hands and practice social distancing so you don’t get infected in the first place.

The Coronavirus Lockdown Guide: When Life Gives You Lemons

With the Covid-19 pandemic on the rise, self-isolation or quarantine seems to be one of the key strategies in slowing the rate of infection or “flattening the curve”. While no single individual can accomplish this, each of us acting rightly and collectively, can make a big difference. As Zeno famously said, “Well-being is realized in small steps, but it is no small thing.”In self-isolation, individuals or families are required to stay within the confines of their homes and avoid any physical contact with those outside. Schools and day-cares have closed, and workplaces are shutting down or moving to remote working.Some are better equipped than others to deal with these periods of isolation. No amount of yelling at the TV, cursing the origin of the virus or hoarding of essentials will help. Spending too many hours on social media doesn’t help. Neither will sticking our head in the sand with an “it’s not really that bad” attitude.What we can control, as always, is how we respond. Here are some tips not only to remain calm in the face of chaos, but to make the best of the quarantine.Get on the same pageWhether you live with your family or in a co-living habitat, it would be helpful at the very start to sit down and devise an arrangement with your co-habitants. Have a discussion around what the biggest challenges maybe and what strengths each one has as an individual that can help. Discuss concerns and expectations about the quarantine, and what role each person can help everyone involved be better prepared, emotionally and practically.Set up a structure Maintaining a routine is important but it need not be strict. Routines provide structure and order which is reassuring for everyone involved. They make the day predictable, especially for those who may have experienced chaos and help them to be calm. So, while it is okay to become more relaxed, it is important to keep up a certain level of routine.Give each other spaceIt can be hard for families or groups who are used to going away to their own activities to be forced into this intense time together. Try to think of things you can do by yourself and as a group. Creating spaces within the house, like ‘play zones’, ‘study zones’, ‘TV zones’ and the like could help. While respecting time alone is important, it could also be a time for reconnecting with family rituals. Meals together, perhaps with a new recipe that all have been involved in preparing could make this more fun.Get things doneThe feeling that something has been accomplished during an isolation period is important. It could include working from home, assignments or getting down to long-avoided chores, repairs or tasks. A “corona journal”, in which you document your experience may especially help. It’s also an opportunity to indulge - have a mandatory tea in the backyard sunshine. It is essential to make time for activities that just make you feel good.Keep movingStaying physically active is critical to boosting one’s mood. Frustration and boredom can quickly seep in when there are not enough opportunities to be physically active. Getting creative with exercise ideas, like setting up an obstacle course in the backyard can transform a mundane activity into something fun. Families or groups can consider things to do together – plan for a movie night, take on a project such as building something together, or even just rearrange the furniture. Work remotelyHome-based working is beneficial for several tasks, especially those that need deep focus. Augmenting this, the development of cheaper and more widely available video-conferencing technology and collaboration tools ease up numerous tasks. There's a bright side to this for sure: working from home reduces commuting time, social interaction time and the number of interruptions that normally happen in an office environment. Upskill with comfortUse your time wisely: don’t let the possible weeks or months of isolation be for nothing. You can’t control how long you’ll need to engage in social distancing, but you can control if you spend that time productively. The version of you who steps out of quarantine at some future date can be better than the version that entered it, if you try. Invest in virtual training programs and build your portfolio with added certifications. Capitalize on the opportunity to equip yourself with skills required to get ahead in the future of work, all within the safety and comfort of your home. Overall, bear in mind that it’s not whether bad things happen, it is how we respond to them that makes all the difference. In this time of crisis, let’s do our part and inspire those around us to do the same. And when life gives us lemons, let’s make lemonade.
