COVID 19, which began in Wuhan, China, has had an impact on everything and everyone in its path. We are forced to stay at home, work from home and study at home. Vaccines from India and China, on the other hand, are being delivered to Nepal. People wait in line for hours in the hopes of being covid vaccinated. However, getting covid vaccination appears to be a difficult task due to the lack of proper management and system.
It turns out that many individuals are being vaccinated, and others are becoming sick while waiting in line in the sweltering heat. According to the daily COVID bulletin, the number of persons being infected is growing day by day. The COVID vaccination is only available to those aged 18 and over.
I was COVID positive and had a CT level of less than 20 when I was tested a month ago in March. It began with a cough and cold that I blamed on the weather as it was gloomy and smoky due to the wildfire. As the days went on, I developed fever, intense throat discomfort and eventually lost my sense of taste and smell; it was then that I realized I needed to get tested for COVID. Later that day, I went to get tested and found out I had COVID.
Believe me when I say that I had a difficult time. I experienced fever, severe chest discomfort and headache, but thankfully my oxygen saturation was not below 93 percent. During this period, eating good food, getting frequent steam and completing breathing exercises are all required. I always slept on my chest since childhood, which came in handy during my COVID days because physicians now advise COVID patients to do so since it aids oxygen intake.
