Utility Of Various Homoeopathic Remedies In COVID-19

DEFINITION
The global public health emergency of COVID-19 pandemic disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (will be referred as SARS-CoV-2 hereafter) has been unfolding rapidly that emerged in Wuhan, China and has now spread to at least 180 countries. Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV in 2003 was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV in 2012 from dromedary camels to humans. The genetic sequence of the SARS-CoV-2 enabled the rapid development of point-ofcare real-time RT-PCR diagnostic tests specific for SARS-CoV-2 which is based on full genome sequence data on the Global Initiative on Sharing All Influenza Data [GISAID] platform. Though in a scorching pace, the scientist of China shared its genome sequence, it is the Australian scientists who have for the first time recreated the virus. It is suggested that even though patients of all ages are susceptible to this disease, individuals developing critical illness were older with greater number of co morbid conditions.

Common symptoms include:
Fever
Tiredness(fatigue)
Dry cough.
Other symptoms include:
Shortness of breath
Aches and pains
Sore throat
and very few people will report diarrhoea, nausea or a runny nose.
The symptoms of COVID-19 infection are similar to those of other cold and flu viruses.  The severity of illness ranges from mild illness, in most cases, to serious illness seen in about 16% of cases.  Symptoms develop about 2-14 days after viral exposure. Typical symptoms include: Fever, cough, and shortness of breath. As these symptoms are very similar to other cold and flu viruses, patients are being screened for COVID-19 if they meet additional modifiers, including recent travel and/or exposure to an individual infected with COVID-19.
