The third wave of COVID: who all are affected?
What is a wave?
A ‘wave’ in terms of a disease means the rising and falling trends of a disease’s impact over a long period.
The first wave of COVID-19 in India reached a peak in September 2020, and the second wave started in March-April 2021.
A health guide for the Pandemic
The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed our lives drastically, and none of us can indeed say that we are protected from getting infected. The usual guidelines of maintaining a healthy lifestyle – eating healthy food, regular but non-exhaustive exercise, managing stress, and adequate sleep are not scientifically proven to boost immunity. Instead, we need overall supportive nutrition strategies, proper hygiene measures, social distancing, and quarantine rules.
Is Mucormycosis linked with COVID?
Mucormycosis (black mold) is a rare but dangerous fungal infection from molds called mucormycetes in the air, which affects the nose and the sinus. It can get through a cut on the skin too. People vulnerable to mucormycosis are the ones with health problems and take medicines that lower their immunity. The more highlighted categories of victims are people with high blood sugar (Hyperglycemia) and patients recovering from COVID. Some people had started taking COVID prescribed medicines to build immunity against the virus even if they got a common cold, and that was enough pretext to lower their immunity.
Can the urban community help the rural counterpart in times of distress?
What is an ‘urban’ and a ‘rural’ area?
Though the rural community is somehow the backbone of the urban economy, the urban community is better positioned to help the rural community in distress. This is because urban areas are densely populated areas with artificial surroundings and the population engaged in trade, commerce, or services. On the other hand, rural areas mean villages or hamlets outside the city’s boundaries with a low population density and large areas of undeveloped land forming the main occupation of its inhabitants-agriculture and animal husbandry. In India, a town with a population below 15000 is considered a rural area.
