However, COVID-19 virus can primarily be spread through saliva or fluid from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Therefore, it is advised that you cough into a flexed elbow or a tissue which should be carefully disposed.
The major symptoms of COVID-19
- Dry Cough
- Chronic Fatigue
- Body Aches
- Breathing Difficulties, etc.
It is sacrosanct to make it known that there has not been cure for the viral disease (as at the time of publishing this post). Although, researches are on-going to find a lasting solution to the global pandemic health challenge, which has crippled free cohabitation, economic stability and social integration in the world.
Notwithstanding, the case is increasing by the day and more cases are yet to be experienced for as long as the potent virus is still active. Many deaths have been recorded while thousands of cases are still pending, but the focus id on those living with the virus. Wherever you may be right at the moment, here are seven (7) things you should avoid if you are infected.
Tip 1 – Don’t PANIC
Panic means when you’re overwhelmed with fear. This attacks can cause your brain to release stress hormones on a regular basis. The danger is that is increase the frequency of symptoms such as headache, dizziness and depression. Thus, this reaction can worsen the situation of the patient living with COVID-19.
Panic arises when fear is dominant. This, in most cases, will affect your mental health and trigger negativity in your behavioural pattern, making it difficult for your body metabolism to help fight the disease.
Don’t be vulnerable to the lies of the devil that you cannot make it out of the disease. Understanding that coronavirus is a pandemic disease that can be cured is the most crucial self-defence mechanism that will save your life, and ensure your fast recovery. Hence, the first key to surviving COVID-19 is – avoid any form of PANIC.
Tip 2 – Avoid DEPRESSION
In #1 above, it’s stated that being overwhelmed with fear can trigger the symptom of depression. How can you respond to treatment when you’re overtly depressed? Depression, in this scenario, cannot help your body fight the virus, rather strengthen it. Yes, you have COVID-19, so what’s the fuse? There are cases of infected people recovering from the disease. The positive report should be your joyful testimony.
Basically, optimism is just the right antidot to depression. You need to start looking at life with your rose-tinted glasses. This is a therapy that helps you get over depression. It will also help boost your mental strength and spiritual energy needed to fight the disease.
Do not allow the frustration of the breaking news get a better of you. If you are thinking of what to do in this period, just read your BIBLE.
Tip 3 – Don’t SPREAD
Covid-19 is now a global problem which arose due to careless spreading. It would have been curtailed if infected people had remained in their location of contraction (of the disease). But due to panic, which resulted in depression, the problem escalated into global disaster.
Nonetheless, there is still hope. The only hope is – Don’t Spread! Avoid contact with family members. Self-isolating and quarantining yourself can go a long way in reducing the spread of the disease.
Tip 4 – ISOLATE Yourself
You’ve often heard the word “Isolation” preach many times in the media or by health experts. COVID-19 is the worst deadly disease that has been able to question the intelligence of men on earth. Once contracted, it takes two weeks to kill its host. With this kind of fear in mind, it’s justified that everyone, including you, should isolate from friends and family.
Isolating yourself as a victim is not a form od stigmatisation, but to ensure reduction in the spread of the world’s deadliest disease. Help the world, save more vulnerable lives and promote healthy lifestyles (add link) by keeping off the street and public gatherings.
Tip 5 – Try SELF-QUARANTINE
Wherever you may be at the moment, don’t conceal the truth from the world. Out of ignorance, a lot of lives have been lost. This should not be your unhappy ending. You are still precious to the world. Therefore, engage in self-quarantine therapy. This should keep your body active to hold on until the health experts come to your rescue.
Tip 6 – Don’t GIVE UP
Faith is a spiritual exercise of the mind. This singular atom breeds courage and hope. Faith is being sure of what is hoped for and the evidence of things unseen. In a way, COVID-19 firstly creates panic in your heart. Panic encourages depression. And the outcome of depression is borne on your faith to shiver. In all this, you’re encouraged to never GIVE UP.
No matter what happens, remember that God is always ready to either accept you into His bossom or grant you a second chance to live again. Whichever the situation, you need more courage to stand the test of time. The thing is – Don’t ever GIVE UP!
Tip 7 – Don’t DIE
Death is a glorious thing for a believer. It’s not a phase of life that all is finished. Whether you’re infected with coronavirus or just diagnosed with common fever or malaria, always remember that death is not the end. There’s life after death only if you’re on the God’s side.
Notwithstanding, the healthy tip for you today is that you should not die. Even if you die of COVID-19, you can still live again.
Healthy organisations all over the world are still battling with the viral disease. Many died in the process of saving infected lives. Even businesses are suffering from the heat of the pandemic disease.
In light of the global experience and reaction towards the pandemic disease (COVID-19), you can still live again if you die. It is written that the outward man dies (perish) daily but the inward man lives on. Thus, the only medical panacea is for you to hope in God.
