Due to Corona virus, millions of people all over the world are living in an environment of unrest. The misleading news that is mostly received from social media, is directly related to the mental health of the people, which is getting worse with time.
The world is still in tension. People do not understand anything. They are scared. Some are shopping for fear of lockdown and some are worried about the news going on social media. There are some steps one can take to deal with such situations and mental health.
Corona virus is a virus that can make animals and humans sick. It is an RNA virus, which means that it breaks into cells inside a body and uses them to regenerate itself. The corona virus is spreading in Wuhan, China like never before. Therefore, not much information is available about it.
Scientists say that the deadly new virus spreading across Asia is more contagious than it was thought to be. Anyone who has been infected by this virus can spread it with just a simple cough or sneeze.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the virus is linked to seafood and is thought to have originated from a seafood market in Wuhan city of Huawei province, China.
Corona virus belongs to the family of viruses and people are getting sick from it. The virus is also entering many animals including camels, cats and bats.
The corona virus spread from Wuhan, China has killed more than 7000 people worldwide, while more than 1.80 lakh people are infected by it. At the same time, new cases of corona are coming up in India every day. Maharashtra has suffered the most in the country.
Every day Corona cases are increasing, due to which the government and health agencies are appealing to people to take precautions. People are being prohibited from going and staying in the crowd. Instead of joining hands, an appeal is being made to Namaste. From bus to metro-trains and from home to market and workplace, people are seen wearing masks.
But the question is, is it necessary for everyone to wear a mask? There is a state of unease among the people about this. In view of all such apprehensions, the Union Health Ministry has shared the information. In which case, whom and when to wear masks:
If someone is suffering from the corona virus or is caring for a suspected corona patient, such as a doctor, nurse, or a victim’s family member, they are required to wear masks.
According to the instructions of the Ministry of Health, if you are in a place where a patient suffering from corona virus lives, then you must wear a mask. It is very important to keep some things in mind while wearing a mask.
Now the question is what is important to be kept in mind while wearing a mask.
Its symptoms are similar to the flu. As a result of infection, problems like fever, cold, shortness of breath, runny nose and sore throat arise. This virus spreads from person to person. Therefore, great care is being taken about this. In some cases, the corona virus can also be fatal. Especially older people who already have asthma, diabetes and heart disease.
It is often seen that while wearing Loga mask, it is sometimes removed from the nose mouth and hangs on the throat. Do not do this at all. By doing this, if the virus has come on the surface of your mask then it can infect you through your throat.
If the mask becomes wet, change it within 6 hours. Do not reuse the disposable mask used and always put it in a closed dustbin.
Do not touch any contaminated parts of the body while removing the mask. After removing the mask, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, or clean your hands with an alcohol sanitizer.
If you want to keep your body and mind healthy, then it is beneficial to exercise in such circumstances. By taking some time in the morning, you can do Yogasana etc.
You can verify the correct facts about the corona virus from the World Health Organization website, Union Health Ministry website.
Take care of cleanliness and hygiene. Wash hands thoroughly with soap. Avoid touching the face. Keep your home and workplace sanitized. The Health Ministry has released a new helpline on Monday regarding the corona virus. This helpline number 1075 can be contacted 24 hours a day. At the same time, the Ministry has also issued the number 011-23978046 earlier.
