I am sharing my covid experience here with corona virus basic information :Priyanka From United Kingdom

As you are reading this, I hope you all are well . As you all know a new and threatening and more transmissible corona strain is spreading in London , United Kingdom and illness, named the ‘Coronavirus’ or Covid-19, rapidly spread across the globe over the last few months, which the World Health Organization explains is a new strain. There are more than 50000 cases on daily basis in England.

Common signs of the covid infection include symptoms, fever, cough, cold, weakness , loss of smell , loss of taste , shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases infection can kidney failure or even death.

The advice and recommendations give to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 infection include, regular hand washing, covering your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, avoiding close contact with anyone showing symptoms. It means you have to maintain social distancing.

I may have contracted the Covid-19 illness in November 2020. Within the vast amount of information available on Covid-19, I found there seemed to be very little from a patient’s perspective so I thought I would share my experience with all of you by this post and this video as well.

MY COVID EXPERIENCE:

I got a call from one of my close friend that she is covid positive along with his family. I was shocked to hear this news as me and my son was in close contact to my friend and her family 2 days before this call . News was disturbing to me and my husband. Here i want to say that if you are covid positive then you should inform your close contacts immediately.
My step wise story is as given under:

Step1 :Inform close contacts : At that moment my son who is studying in year 5 was in school. So we decided that we should contact school immediately. We contacted school authorities over phone and discussed matter. After discussion my husband went to school and came back along with my son so this is our precautionary step to stop spread of corona virus (in case we are positive , as at that time we were not aware whether we were covid positive or not . ) We were not having any symptoms at that time.

Step 2:Self isolation: We want to bring in your kind notice that you may be covid positive without any symptoms too. i mean to say that you may be asymptomatic corona positive . So at that time we were in same position. Despite of that we decided to self isolate immediately to safe others. So i want to say that if you are in contact with any corona positive or if you are corona positive you must isolate yourself in both situations. In our case we were in contact with corona positive.

Step3: Symptoms: My symptoms started with sore throat on next day and after that i got fever too. At that time my son was having minor cold and no symptoms to my son. Please note that you may have symptoms like fever, cough, cold , weekness , loss of smell , loss of taste , shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

Step 4:Covid test: As we were having symptoms so i decided to conduct covid test for myself and my son as we both were having symptoms. You can apply for test on following link https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
There are 2 option to apply for covid test. (1) Visit Covid test centre (2) apply for test kit at home.
You must apply online for both options . We decided to opt for option no. 2 as test centre was far away from home . We decided not to spread virus by taking public transport to reach centre .
We applied for test kit online . We received test kit by post . We conducted test as per instruction manual received with the Kit . Click on following link to know how to do test : https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/testing-for-coronavirus-at-home/covid-19-home-test-step-by-step-guide-adults-and-children After conducting test we sent test kits by post .

I suffered with other symptoms like loss of smell , loss of taste , body pain etc too .

Step 5 : Immunity Booster : We ordered Vitamin C , Paracetamol , Multi Vitamins online along with our daily needs like grocery etc . We focused on hot water , tea , milk with turmeric , desi kadha as home remedies . ( No medicine given by Doctors )
We received our test result and unfortunately myself and my son both were positive. I was thinking that my result will come positive keeping in the mind that i was having all symptoms at that time . but as my son was having minor cold so it was shocking for me .

Step 6 : Hidden of facts from Son : As son was having only minor cold and he was living happily without any fear and he is only 9 years old . So we decided that we will not tell him that he is positive . We lied to him that he is negative . So son was happy and enjoyed his isolation ( After isolation and when i recovered we told him about truth )
So after all this i recovered from this covid 19. Please note that Step 5 is most important and you are advised to keep your moral high . Take all precautions but don’t panic . You can watch my video too on same.

Step 7:Request of re-test and living normal life: We requested for re-test to make sure that we are not covid positive after health recovery and end of isolation period . But medical authorities told not to conduct test and informed us over phone that there may be dead cells in our body as dead cells may continue in body up to 90 days and test may show us positive again so there is no need for test as dead cells can not harm anybody and we can live normal life now .

 


So after all this i recovered from this covid 19. Please note that Step 5 is most important and you are advised to keep your moral high . Take all precautions but don’t panic . You can watch my video too on same.
Remember to wash your hands, use a face covering, maintain social distancing and be vigilant of symptoms. You can call 111 or 999 for any help .
