Steroids are used to cure the infection in several cases. But not all cases of Covid infection require the use of steroids. So the indiscriminate use of steroids must be avoided. The use of steroids can cause severe health problems in cases of mild coronavirus infection. Medicines must be used only as per the advice of a doctor.
People who test positive for Covid-19 must consult a specialist doctor. Only a specialist with experience in treating infectious diseases can guide the patient, in turn making the recovery process fast.
Vital signs must be closely monitored and tracked from day one, specially SPO2 level and fever. Any minor change like a decrease in oxygen levels need to be taken seriously. People with other health issues must also monitor their blood sugar and pressure level at regular intervals.
People with suspected Covid, showing mild symptoms must seek medical advice and also undergo self-quarantine till their Covid test results are received.
