COVID-19’s first case has been tested positive in China by December 2019. We have been struggling with this problem since December. On 31 December 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) received a cluster report of viral pneumonia cases for unknown reasons in Wuhan, Hubei, China.
The Government imposed a lockdown to control the virus spread, and only people with essential services like; Doctors, Policemen, or Health workers are allowed to go outside; there was a complete lockdown for ordinary people to stop community transmitted of COVID-19. But now the situation has become worse. The Covid-19 pandemic is growing at the fastest pace worldwide, 20% week to week.
BUT the question arises here the impact of this pandemic over the patients who are struggling with the other diseases, and they need to go to hospitals for regular checkups. For them, it will be the most dangerous and crucial time. Mainly it is a fear of this virus, which creates specific issues. People are experiencing worry, anxiety, and fear of receiving medical treatment.
One of the most concerned is the mental health of the patients. For that purpose, the government established some guidelines settling a mental help task force on behalf of the Ministry, setting up a helpline providing teleconsultation to patients.
All over the world, GOVERNMENTS are following WHO guidelines and safety measures. First of all, do not ignore any fever, cough, body ache, and cold symptoms. Stay at home, self-isolated, and monitor your symptoms.
Here are some safety measures-
- Maintain almost 1-meter distance.
