coronavirus myths

There has been a lot of myths about COVID-19 especially in Pakistan which is creating panic among the Pakistanis. This Pakistani hardworking front line doctor has cleared all the myths about the pandemic in the country.

Dr. Ailya Shah from Benazir Bhutto Accident Emergency and Trauma Center recently addressed rumors about fake deaths, doctors selling death bodies, or wrongly declaring COVID-19 deaths. And also wrong preventive measures being used to cure the virus.

According to her, COVID-19 is not a conspiracy, it’s real and people are dying because of it. Doctors don’t have any personal gain in doing politics over the dead bodies. “We study and spend a lot of money to become doctors, not to do kill them.”

While talking about the increasing number of cases in Pakistan she said people were not following SOPs which was becoming the prime reason for COVID-19 cases in Pakistan. Also, she said all these plasma treatments were just for testing purposes there was no guaranteed result from it.

However, the doctor also said the recovered coronavirus patients were less likely to contract the virus again. And, even if they do it won’t be too harmful to them or others. But, if diabetes and heart patients get coronavirus then it would most likely become deadly for them.

She said all fever, body ache, and loss of taste and smell were not related to COVID-19. Dr. Ailya encouraged people to take a healthy diet and supplements to improve immunity.

‘Follow guidelines by WHO’

Most people who get COVID-19 have mild or moderate symptoms and can recover if taken care of properly. If you have a cough, fever, and difficulty breathing seek medical care early.

Also, don’t do self-medication and don’t believe in rumors. While several drug trials are ongoing, there is currently no proof that hydroxychloroquine or any other drug can cure or prevent COVID-19. The misuse of hydroxychloroquine can cause serious side effects and illness and even lead to death.

World Health Organization (WHO) is also giving guidelines to prevent coronavirus. They are also busting myths through their official website. People should follow their instructions rather than believing the forwarded messages and finding an online cure for the virus.
