Prevention is better than cure: Protocols for preventing Covid-19

Prevention, we know, is always better than cure. This age-old adage has stood the test of time and has become all the more relevant now in the current pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‑19), caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Indian Express

A 25-year-old doctor who completed his MBBS from AIIMS died Monday morning after having battled Covid for over a month. Dr Vikas Solanki, a resident of Hisar in Haryana, tested positive for the disease last month and had been availing treatment at a hospital there. He was shifted to the AIIMS campus in Jhajjar as his complications grew. On Saturday, Dr Solanki was shifted from the Jhajjar campus to AIIMS Trauma Centre in Delhi and was put on ventilator. Dr Ajay Mohan, a surgery resident at AIIMS, who was Solanki’s senior during their MBBS days at the Institute, said he died at 8.30 am at the Trauma Centre. Mohan said Solanki was initially “asymptomatic” and that the virus “first impacted his pancreas leading to hypoglycemia and sepsis. Slowly, his organs started shutting down. He underwent dialysis too — the condition of his lungs deteriorated and then on Monday morning, he passed away. He was a dynamic young man; it’s so heartbreaking and scary.”
