Who Should Go for Coronavirus Self Quarantine
Coronavirus Self-Quarantine - Coronavirus cases in India continue to rise. Undoubtedly, we are facing one of the most dangerous and fatal pandemics. However, experts say the number of positive coronavirus (COVID-19) cases may witness its peak in the upcoming months of June-July.
Besides, washing hands frequently and thoroughly, avoiding touching our mouth, eyes, nose, more serious measures need to be taken. Self-quarantine is one of the necessary and important measures to curb the coronavirus spread.
While not everyone is advised to self-quarantine, those who come into the below categories must go for self-quarantine.
People With Health Issues
Those who have underlying health conditions and are at most risk of severe illness from coronavirus must go for self-quarantine at home. Besides, those who feel sick because of their age should also stay home and self-quarantine even if they do not have any coronavirus symptoms. It is extra important for these people to take actions to reduce the risk of getting sick with the disease.
During self-quarantine, it is important to stay at home all the time and avoid face-to-face contact for at least 14 days.
People Who Have Returned from Abroad
Those who are coming from foreign countries under the Vande Bharat Mission must cooperate with authorities and quarantine themselves as instructed by the authorities. Vande Bharat Mission is the largest repatriation operation conducted by the government for Indians who are stranded overseas due to the ongoing coronavirus lockdown around the globe.
Those Having Even Mild Symptoms
If you have any symptoms of coronavirus, you must immediately quarantine yourself at home and inform the respective authorities for the same. Common symptoms of the COVID-19 disease include:
- Dry cough
- High Fever
- Shortness of breath
- Sore throat
- Runny or stuffy nose in rare cases
- Diarrhea rarely
- Fatigue sometimes
Self-quarantined people must prohibit visitors (friends or relatives) from visiting them until or unless they are coming for essential services. Since you are under self-quarantine, you should self-monitor your temperature twice daily.
However, the self-quarantined person can keep in touch with others via telephone, email or social media.
Those In Contact With An Infected Person
People who came in contact with people tested coronavirus positive, must quarantine themselves. As such people stand at higher risk of being exposed to the highly infectious disease. Self-quarantine will help in breaking the chain of coronavirus spread and ultimately contain the disease.
Self-isolation is an effort to limit the coronavirus spread. We must maintain distance even with our family members at home and self-quarantine ourselves in case we come in any of the above-mentioned categories to keep everyone safe from the coronavirus diseases.
