ABSTRACT

COVID-19 Corona virus has become a global reality, so has working from home. We all know that it’s a turbulent time but what’s worse is the fear & anxiety that is hitting people. School closures have served as a wake-up call for many families where both the parents have full-time jobs. Parents are feeling the pressure to engage their children in meaningful activities while their phones pinging every minute with work related messages, getting stressed because some have a looming deadline. This is the time for the parents to rise up by putting behind fear and anxiety and channelize their energy into what can they do to productively engage a child at home. In this difficult time, it is important to care for the mental health of the children because they can be traumatized by the parent’s anxiety. For some, it is a claustrophobic, but it is important to stay positive. Parents must remind the children that social distancing is a form of action, and it’s one of the few things we can do to fight against the spread of the virus, and it’s a unique opportunity to spend quality time together as a family. COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered corona virus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. There is no evidence that current medicine can prevent or cure the disease. We do not recommend self-medication with any medicines, including antibiotics, as a prevention or cure for COVID-19. However, there are several ongoing clinical trials that include both western and traditional medicines. And there is no vaccine and no specific antiviral medicine to prevent or treat COVID-2019. However, those affected should receive care to relieve symptoms. People with serious illness should be hospitalized. Most patients recover thanks to supportive care. Possible vaccines and some specific drug treatments are under investigation. They are being tested through clinical trials.
