Covid-19_ Tips To Stay Healthy During Your Home Quarantine

Due to the pandemic Covid-19, we all have been instructed by the medical professionals and the central government to practice self-isolation. Maintaining social distancing is mandatory for all of us to prevent the transmission of this deadly virus. To flatten the curve, everyone needs to stay inside their homes and take the precautionary measures.

Today, Varanasi Hospital will share some tips to stay physically and mentally healthy during the home quarantine.

You need to take great care of hygiene during the home quarantine period. Wash your hands at all times with liquid soap and running water for at least 20 seconds. If washing hands is not possible then use a 70% alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Do not use hand sanitizer before cooking as alcohol-based hand sanitizers are highly inflammable. Keep your surroundings clean and disinfect every item regularly.

Avoid unnecessary touching yourself

It’s very easy for the virus to enter your body. You can easily insert the virus inside your body by touching your eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. If you have to touch your face then do it with freshly washed hands.

Winter season has finally reached the holy city of Varanasi and all we are concerned about is our health. Adults can look out for themselves, but what about children? Apart from our love and guidance, children also need us to protect them from the winter season. When it comes to the winter season, children need to take extra precautions compared to adults, as they have low endurance to cold. Also, the change of season highly affects them as they are more vulnerable to infections, seasonal colds, and cough.
Dear parents, we know how much you get worried about your kids’ health during the winter season. So, to ease your worries, Varanasi Hospital, one of the best hospitals in Varanasi, presents some tips that will help you to keep your children safe and healthy during winter. Let’s look at them now.

• Seasonal fruits and vegetables (oranges, pomegranates, carrots, beets, colourful bell peppers or rang birangi shimla mirch, mustard greens or sarson ka saag, green vegetable or hari sabziyan and so on)
• Milk (preferably turmeric milk or haldi waala doodh) and milk products (paneer and ghee)
• Mushrooms
• Soaked and peeled almonds
• Boiled eggs.

Motivate your little ones to drink more water, you can also serve them hot vegetable soups and homemade litti chokha.

2. Encourage good hygiene

As a parent, it’s our responsibility to inculcate good hygiene habits in our children. Tell your kids to do the following things:
– To wash their hands -before and after eating, after coming from outside, after touching anything dirty and after using the washroom.
– To bathe daily with warm water and soap
– To always keep themselves clean
– For parents, wash your children’s winter clothes regularly.

In Varanasi, we face harsh winter so it’s always better to wear more clothes on the body. Ask your kids to wear thermal wear under their sweater or jacket. Also, cover important areas of their body like head, ears, and neck, with woollen caps, earmuffs, and mufflers respectively. Tell your kids to wear socks at all times.

4. Let them rest

Hernia

Yes, there is a possibility of a hernia recurrence. A hernia can affect both men and women of any age including children. A hernia is a situation when a bulge comes out into the layers below the skin most commonly seen in the abdomen or the groin region. Although a hernia can be treated with a surgery, the biggest complication remains even after the surgery. Yes, a hernia can return after it is repaired and it is called a ‘recurrent’ a hernia. It can happen to every surgeon. Recurrent hernias are formed after the successful surgery of a primary hernia. It can happen at any point in time, maybe within few days or weeks after the first surgery or after many years. Although a patient cannot affect the risk of developing a first-time hernia, however, certain precautions can be taken to minimize the chance of developing a recurrent hernia.

We make excuses to avoid getting the health check ups done on a regular basis. We only show concern when we feel a problem and visit the doctor. A regular medical checkup is important for the benefit of general wellbeing and overall health conditions of a person. It can be done twice or quarterly in a year to detect any upcoming health issues and diagnose the disease at an early stage.
