So you must be living in another planet if you are not aware of the new deadly Covid coronavirus 2019. Starting from China in late 2019 it has spread to different regions of the world and created an alarming situation for WHO. It's high time for us to find a solution. Though it's not as deadly as Swine flu, Ebola, it still has the mortality rate of 2 to 3 percent and for a country of 130 crore people it's really a challenge to manage it effectively and ensure zero causality or single-digit casuality. The covid coronavirus is yet to be studied properly. But with the little research, we have had now it's well established that it affects the respiratory system mainly causing bilateral pneumonia. Fever, cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, vomiting, diarrhea, kidney failure are other symptoms. If you notice any of these symptoms kindly speak to a doctor over a call first and then visit your nearest health facility.

ROLE OF HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES

The role of Homoeopathic medicines in the prevention of viral diseases is well established. Ministry of Ayush and CCRH already advised about Arsenicum album. I want to mention that it is not like a vaccine that take it and you will be protected. Rather these medicines will increase your immunity and also decrease susceptibility towards the viral infection. I will name a few medicines that will help you in this               

1. Arsenicum Album - It acts well in any kind of viral infection with fever cold flu-like symptoms with sneezing cough and diarrhea.          

2. Justicia Adhatoda-  It acts well in conditions with cough, shortness of breath progressing towards pneumonia   

3. Influenzinum- As the name suggests it works better in influenza-like symptoms with sneezing, cold, cough       

4. Eupatorium- It acts well in flu-like symptoms with severe bone pain and vomiting fever. 

There are so many other medicines also but consult a doctor before taking any of these. Stay healthy and stay safe.
