TOGETHER WE CAN: Corona Virus and Preventive Measures

Thousands have now died from the COVID-19 virus, which first appeared in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019. The virus has now spread to over 190 countries causing the WHO to declare it a PANDEMIC.

Our cofounder, Rupanshi Agarwal, got in touch with Dr. Nandini Rastogi to discuss a few questions about COVID 19 that has now lead us to a global crisis.

Dr. Nandini Rastogi did her MBBS from AFMC Pune, and MD (Medicine) from GSVM Kanpur.

Dr. Rastogi has been the President of Kanpur Physicians Association and Kanpur Diabetes Association. Her special interests are Critical Care and Diabetes.

 

 

Some recent developments-

  • India goes into a 21 days long nation-wide lockdown. This will hopefully help the country flatten the curve of this deadly pandemic.

  • While the rest of the world goes into lockdown, China is set to lift restrictions in Wuhan, the original epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic.

  • As of this morning, nearly 425,059 people have contracted the coronavirus globally, out of which 562 are in India.
