COVID-19 management at home

Dr. Ujjwal Rathore, a virologist at the University of California-San Francisco, while being closely involved with coronavirus research has spent a significant amount of time and effort in providing useful advice to multiple members of his family, and others afflicted by COVID-19. In this video (in Hindi), he talks about how to deal with COVID-19 at home, when to seek medical advice and separates facts from fiction. Please watch and share the video widely- science can save lives!
Most cases of COVID (oxygen level 92% or more) can be managed at home with paracetamol (for symptoms such as fevers), adequate hydration, rest and maximum possible isolation from other family/household members. Unfortunately, a number of medicines/therapies being prescribed for COVID in India are NOT effective. These include: antibiotics such as Azithromycin etc., FabiFlu (Favipiravir), Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine.

Please also refer to COVID home care tips by IndiaCOVIDSOS (https://www.indiacovidsos.org/home-care). Translations in multiple Indian languages (and Nepali) are also available.
