According to the new guidelines issued by the Central Government, patients who do not show symptoms of corona infection or have mild symptoms, they do not need to take any kind of medicines. However, the medicines for other diseases which are going on should be continued. Such patients should take tele-consultation (treatment through video). A good diet should be taken. Also, necessary corona rules like mask, social distancing should be followed.
No need to take these drugs anymore…
The Director General of Health Services (DGHS) has removed all drugs used in the treatment of asymptomatic patients from the list under the new guidelines. It has been said in the guideline that such infected people do not even need to undergo other tests. Earlier on May 27, the guideline was issued, which prohibited the use of hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, doxycycline, zinc and multivitamins on patients with mild symptoms. Apart from this, non-essential tests like CT scan were also forbidden for asymptomatic patients.
In the new guidelines, corona patients and their families have been suggested to stay connected with each other through phone or video call and talk positively. Along with this, people have been appealed to consult a doctor if they feel any kind of problem or symptoms of disease, take medicines only after that.
Let us inform that on Monday, 1 lakh 1 thousand 159 cases of corona were reported in the country. This figure is the lowest in the last 62 days. Earlier on April 5, the corona report of 96,563 people came positive. In the last 24 hours, 2,444 people have died due to infection.
