The Union Health Ministry has issued revised guidelines for patients with mild infection or without symptoms living in home isolation. It states that in case of stay in home isolation for 10 days and fever for three consecutive days, patients can come out of home isolation, and no testing is required at that time.
According to the guidelines, the case of the patient should be decided by the health officer with a mild or non-symptomatic case. In such a case, the self-isolation of the patient should be arranged at their home. The oxygen saturation of such patients living in the room should be more than 94 percent and there should be a better arrangement of ventilation as well. Confirmation of infectious patients should be confirmed after testing in laboratories.
Be a caretaker all the time
A caretaker must be present at all times for the patient and communication between the caretaker and the hospital should be continued during home isolation. In case of corona infection in people above 60 years of age and in cases of stress, diabetes, heart disease, chronic lung / liver / kidney disease, etc., the medical officer will approve home isolation only after properly checking the patient's health. .
Take paracetamol 650mg to control fever
If fever is not able to be controlled, paracetamol 650 mg can be taken four times a day. If fever is still not controlled then you can contact a doctor who can give non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug medicines like noproxen 250mg twice a day.
Can also take ivermectin tablet
The guidelines state that such patients can take ivermectin (200 mcg/kg) tablet once a day for three to five days. Inhalational budesonide can be given 800 mcg twice daily through inhaler for more than five days of fever / cough.
Refusal to take Remedisivir at home
Remadecivir injection can be given only and only in the hospital and do not try to keep it at home.
