These infections are common among senior citizens, pregnant women,” says Dr Chavan.

Post Covid phase requires care

“Covid-19 has a long range of side effects, the most prevalent of which being fever, dry cough, and shortness of breath. The severity and length of these symptoms varies from person to person, although some are more likely to persist far into your recovery phase.

You must still get vaccinated or receive a booster, wear a mask, and maintain social distance,” says Dr Taymeena Kachot, Critical Care Specialist, Porvoo Transition Care.

“Make sure you get enough exercise and physical activity at home. Eat regularly and divide your daily calories into 5-6 small meals rather than skipping meals. Incorporate fibre into your diet by eating whole grain cereals, whole grains and pulses, whole wheat porridge, whole wheat bread, oats, and so on,” says Dr Mohammad amzad Ali , Critical Care Specialist, Porvoo Transition Care.
