Even though people who haven’t travelled for years are now getting tensed if they cough or have fever.
More than the novel coronavirus, it is the panic that is gripping faster than the wildfire. Even with the mildest symptom of COVID-19 they are panicking.
Health officials have advised that any person in the city who find it uneasy with coughing and find it abnormal with the soaring temperatures, isolation is the basic key. And then dial 108 to get it tested in the city. Sometimes it can just be a flu or viral fever and not COVID-19. To know the results rather than jumping into conclusions, it is advisable to get it tested.
According to the District Medical and Health officer (DMHO), K Vijayalakshmi said that if the person finds any symptoms of COVID-19 and is not sure whether it is a flu or COVID-19, firstly they need to isolate, then dial 108 give details about the location and state their condition, the health team will come and take the patient either to KGH, IDH or Government chest hospital, get the person tested and if the reports come negative, he or she will be discharaged and if found positive then the treatment will be continued for the betterment of the health of patient.
