How to treat corona at home? Learn what to eat and what not

The second wave of 
corona virus is infecting people very quickly. The infection spreads very quickly from one person to another. In severe cases of corona, the patient has to be hospitalized, but in mild or moderate cases it can be treated at home. It is also called home isolation. In the seclusion of the home, patients treat themselves in isolation from the rest of the household. Let us know how Corona patients can recover faster by staying at home.

Rules required for home isolation-

For home isolation the corona patient needs to have a separate and well-ventilated space in the house. There should be a separate toilet for the patient. There should be someone for 24-hour care of the patient. It is worth noting that the symptoms of a patient living in home isolation should not be severe. If severe, the patient is advised to be hospitalized.

What should the patient do in home isolation-

The patient should keep the window of his room open. The patient should always wear a three-layer mask and change it every 6-8 hours. Hands should be washed with soap and water for 40 seconds. Avoid touching more touched surfaces. Keep your utensils, towels, sheet cloths completely separate and let someone else use them.

Patients staying at home should check fever and oxygen levels twice a day. Body temperature should not exceed 100 Fahrenheit. At the same time, look at the oxygen level from the oximeter, the SpO 2 rate should not be less than 94 percent. If you have another disease, then continue to treat it simultaneously. Do not use alcohol, smoking or any other drug during isolation. Follow the doctor's advice and take medicines regularly.

How to eat -

Corona patients should take home-made fresh and plain food. Eat a diet rich in fresh fruits like seasonal, oranges and oranges and proteins like beans and lentils. Use spices like ginger, garlic and turmeric in the diet. Drink 8-10 glasses of water a day.

Low fat milk and yogurt should be eaten. Non-veg eaters should eat skinless chicken, fish and egg whites. Wash it well before eating anything. The diet of Corona patients should be cooked in low cholesterol oil.

What not to eat

Corona patients should not eat cereals, fried foods or junk food. One should avoid unsaturated fats like chips, packet juice, cold drinks, cheese, butter, mutton, fried, processed meat and palm oil. Eat yellow eggs only once a week. Don't eat non-veg two or three times a week.

Duration of Home Isolation-

The duration of home isolation is usually up to 14 days. If the patient does not have a fever or any other symptoms in the last 10 days, they can end the home isolation by asking the doctor.

Keep in mind -

Corona virus weakens the body as well as patients mentally. Therefore, during treatment, patients should also take full care of their mental health. You can stay in touch with your friends and relatives by phone and video call, even in the privacy of your own home. During this time, read your favorite books. You can watch your favorite shows on mobile and even play light games. Take care not to put too much pressure on yourself and get plenty of rest
