We touched covid19 but survived – it’s about building up immunity

We touched covid19 but survived – it’s about building up immunity

Two weeks back, A Friday evening, time was around 4:10pm I got a call from my husband that his colleague has deducted covid positive. And few of the other colleagues went for lipid test and turned positive.

I was shocked, thrilled and scared as my kids who are just 1.5 years old twins had run past me. Many thoughts started running into my mind.

I calmly sat down and called my husband back to call him back home. Meanwhile I prepared a room for him wherein all arrangements were made to isolate him for upcoming days.

He came back home, took Bath and we booked a covid test for him. I googled everything to safeguard myself and my family from any kind of infection.

His test took a day’s time to happen and the result further took two days, those were tough 3 days of our life. He was quarantined and wasn't able to see kids as well.

Finally, a sigh of relief when he tested negative. Though prescribed to take precautions.

Sharing my brief experience which helped us stay immune:

Warm water throughout the day.

Only homemade simple food

Inclusion of raw turmeric and amla in diet (@rustichaat)

The most important – stay calm and think positive

It has been 2 weeks since my husband was suggested to maintain social distancing. We have again undergone the covid19 test and came out negative.

We are blessed by god grace to safeguard our family & friends.

Simple set of precautions and a positive outlook can certainly help to mitigate the risk.

Just focus on building up your immunity. This too shall pass.
