LIVE BLOGGING SINCE 16 MARCH: Since the facts and figures related to the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (nCOVID-19, COVID-19 or COVID) are changing by the minute, Sirf News has begun this blog to keep the readers updated with information coming from authentic sources.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has posted an advisory video on Instagram to fight the coronavirus outbreak in India with information and awareness. “Rumours are spreading fast at this time… I urge all of you to stay away from rumours,” the prime minister says in the video. He explains the significance of taking precautionary measures instead of getting stricken with panic by the news of the emerging cases of the contagious disease.

“Wash hands… do not touch face, eyes,” Prime Minister Modi says in the video as he explains that people often touch their face, eyes with dirty hands that lead to spreading of infection. “While those who are infected are already quarantined, even those who are suspected to have the infection should not be scared… Contact the doctor immediately and heed the advice of experts,” PM Modi says in the nearly seven-minute-long clip. “The infection can spread to family members… it’s better to maintain personal hygiene,” he adds.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) had declared the coronavirus disease as a global pandemic last week after it spread to over 100 countries. This was a delayed response, given that the spread of the disease and the style of the spread had qualified it as a pandemic about a month ago.

The community of doctors and scientists are reporting some serious health consequences of coronavirus even post-recovery. They include male infertility.

Back in India, media is using the word “cured” rather than “recovered” to report some cases of coronavirus where the patients have overcome the disease. Unsubstantiated claims of Ayurveda and Homoeopathy succeeding where modern medicine has not seen success are emerging.
