There seems to be certain level of awareness regarding the COVID19 but within the attempt to raise awareness, there has been perforation of various uncertainties, which has led to the stigma, disassociation and fear in a way. The resultant response is not very clear from the suffering, neither from the people people around. Any respiratory illness and symptoms are being noticed and looked at, probably dealt in ways that might not been.
But amidst all the noise, news, updates, rumors and intent to raise awareness, what slightly possibly is missed is the acceptance of the uncertainty of the way virus may react on the host person and it may change. Secondly any symptomatic person must get attention – professional specialized Covid-19 attention to get the best treatment or response. People who have symptoms and have been in contact with positive confirmed cases should be very vigilant and report at the earliest. Along with that people who have no contact of any form but experience any mild symptoms of ARI, should seek medical attention and isolate.
But beyond all the medical terms and protocols, people must learn to empathize and show care of every form. By helping the people around with clear steps and reducing the vibe and nervousness, things may seem to get clear view.
Each needs to be dealt differently. Half the battle is won if the person is clear in the head.
So to avoid any kind of stigma or reluctance to proceed further with Corona testing or treatment, one must be given proper information and care. Also the time to digest the symptoms.
Empathy. Care. Affection. This will result into a strong response method combined with isolation, medication and precautions.
