“The adage- self-preservation is the first law of nature- is very relevant in today’s context when nobody knows who will be the next victim of the pandemic coronavirus. But one thing is sure that self- isolation with preventive measures, you can keep the killer virus at bay. At this point of time, we all need to understand that life is better than gold. Hence, saving ourselves is saving the human race on earth” informed Dr Birbal Jha.
“Developing a sort of immunity against any attack of a virus must be our prime concern for now and for which taking a proper dose of turmeric blended with a slight amount of pepper is more advisable as the Ayurveda says, advised Dr Birbal.
“Doctors across the country should maintain extra cautious and use ‘CoronaKit’ available in the market as safety measures. Negligence of precautionary steps will jeopardize the health services given the pandemic condition. People in common need to understand the situation and use safety kits”, said Dr Birbal.
