MY COVID EXPERIENCE

‘Proper medication helped in beating virus’

‘Proper medication helped in beating virus’

Keeping your mind positive and negative thinking at bay, taking proper medication and rest are some of the ways to fight the Covid-19 disease. This was stated by Jatin Sharma, a medical laboratory technician at Guru Nanak Dev Hospital (GNDH) here.

In 2020, there was more panic and terror at that time as the virus was spreading at a brisk pace among people. Therefore, when I tested positive, my family and I remained in shock and worried for a couple of days. Moreover, my family members were at the risk of getting infected due to me. Later, I made up my mind to keep all the negative thoughts out of my mind and be positive and this worked wonders.-  Jatin Sharma, Lab Technician, GNDH

Jatin has been afflicted with the virus twice. Last year he caught the infection in July and this year in May. Being in the medical profession, we are more vulnerable to the Covid-19 infection even after taking all the necessary preventive measures, he pointed out.

In 2020, there was more panic and terror at that time as the virus was spreading at a brisk pace among people. Therefore, when I tested positive, my family and I remained in shock and worried for a couple of days. Moreover, my family members were at the risk of getting infected due to me. “Later, I made up my mind to keep all the negative thoughts out of my mind and be positive and this worked wonders,” he said.

I took proper medication provided by the government in the shape of Fateh Kit, besides doing yoga and breathing exercise daily. Moral support from the family members also helped me fight the virus. I used to talk to them on the phone as I had shifted to the upper floor of the house. High fever due to the infection leads to weakness in the body which needed a proper diet and rest. I used to do exercise at the rooftop during the period.

Last month when I contracted the infection again, I was less worried. I took all the precautions so that the infection did not affect other members of the family. I have taken the first dose of the vaccine. I urge people to get themselves inoculated whenever their turns come.
