My Covid Experience

‘Self-confidence, right diet helped in defeating virus’

‘Self-confidence, right diet helped in defeating virus’

THIS Covid warrior believes in self-confidence and choosing a right diet to recover from the Covid-19 disease. Jatin Sharma, 28, is a medical laboratory technician at Government Medical College being run along with Guru Nanak Dev Hospital. He probably contracted the virus at the college as he felt feverish and weakness in his body while attending office on July 28. As a precaution, he immediately got an X-ray of his chest done. Examining him, the doctors guessed it either to be the virus or pneumonia which he had contracted. Subsequently, he gave samples to a lab at GND Hospital and immediately went into home quarantine, isolating himself.

Two days later, his medical report came out positive. First, he managed to beat the fever in two to three days.

Second, he consumed only a good and relevant diet and avoided taking cold food and drinks. He increased liquid content in his diet like coconut water, juices, kahda (concoction), lukewarm water, and consumed eggs daily. He specifically inhaled steam three to four times a day.

Since his parents passed away long ago, he has been living with his elder brother in Mohni park locality. “My neighbours did not change in their behaviour towards me and treated me normally. One of my neighbours also tested positive and he has now recovered from the disease.” If a person is mentally strong then it is like an ordinary fever. — As told to Neeraj Bagga
