The increasing number of coronavirus cases all over the world has been leading people to panic. The disease has claimed the lives of over 7,000 people worldwide, and the number of those diagnosed with COVID-19 is also on the rise.People are doing whatever is possible, to avoid catching the infecton themselves, or avoiding being exposed to the disease. However, given so much unverified information on the Internet, and unchecked Whatsapp forwards, it is difficult to filter out which information is legit, and which isn’t, resulting in misinformation among people.
It has reached a point where people are panicking and are hoarding to get checked by a doctor at the minutest symptom of coughing. Amid coronavirus scare, a video of an Indian doctor simply explaining his patients the symptoms of COVID-19 and how to differentiate between a flu, allergy and coronavirus, is going viral on the Internet. The doctor keeps it concise, giving on-point information, as he addresses the many patients gathered at his clinic to get checked. He mentions in the video how simply dry cough, or a runny nose isn’t an indication of coronavirus infection.
The doctor also mentions how people who are more prone to the virus or are serious victims, are the elderly, who have conditions such as diabetes, cancer, and other problems. This video is something we should all watch to inform ourselves and keep ourselves aware without being panicky. Take a look:
Well, now you know what the symptoms of Coronavirus are, and that simply having cough, runny nose isn’t cause for concern or panic. And while one shouldn’t ignore the symptoms, they shouldn’t panic either.
