A short guide on treating COVID-19 at home

Treating COVID at home.png
Options of at-home treatments can help alleviate mild symptoms.

Since the onset of the pandemic, one of the key mandates by healthcare organistions and governing bodies has been social distancing and quarantining if individuals are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.

It is highly important for those who have been in contact with those who tested positive to self-isolate and undergo PCR testing. In instances where they are awaiting their results, or during the isolation period, there are at-home treatment options they can consider to recuperate from the infection.

To learn more, watch the video below:

Tips from the video:

  • Stay Home – one of the major reasons for the spread of the infection is due to transmission. Patients who have tested positive, or those who may feel they have been exposed, can place those who are more susceptible to contracting the infection at risk. As recovery for all is not the same, especially for those who have preexisting health conditions, the outcome can be fatal.
  • Stay hydrated – drink plenty of fluids
  • Stay isolated – avoid contact
  • Wear a mask – In instances of interaction with healthcare providers or caretakers, always ensure you are wearing your mask.
  • If you have a fever, take anti-fever medicines such as paracetamol.
  • Monitor symptoms, such as shortness of breath
  • If symptoms start progressing, seek medical care

Remember, no oral medications you can take at home have been proven in clinical trials to improve health outcomes.
