With the pandemic reaching a global scale, safeguarding ourselves and our families has become a pressing priority. Despite the necessity, in such a time, visiting medical facilities is simply a call for trouble, with the sheer amount of exposure you cause to yourself and others. In order to combat a contagious disease, such as COVID-19, it is important to practice social distancing and self-quarantining, if you show symptoms of the virus.
Due to the national and global outbreak of COVID-19, it has become essential for you to be aware of the symptoms that are likely to onset, in the event of you contracting the virus. The symptoms are as follows and are likely to manifest themselves within 1-14 days of you contracting the novel corona virus. It is also important to note that post contracting the virus, certain people show mild symptoms and certain are asymptomatic, meaning they show no symptoms.
- shortness of breath/ difficulty in breathing
- fatigue or tiredness
The Significance of Telemedicine in the Time of Social Distancing
As the virus is highly contagious, individuals with compromised immune systems are more susceptible. Additionally, older people and people with conditions, such as asthma, heart diseases, chronic respiratory diseases or diabetes are at a higher risk than younger and healthier individuals. Hence, in such a difficult time and crisis, it is important to stay within our homes and protect your elderly by making use of telemedicine.

Rather than stepping out of your home and possibly spreading the virus, it is important and the practical decision to stay in, get in touch with us and get a consult done with our practitioner. It is also important to not self-medicate, as this can prove to be detrimental.
