3 things you can do to deal with COVID-19 at home

Proper care and monitoring of the patient with COVID-19 is important. Whether you have mild symptoms or are asymptomatic after a positive test, you should inform your doctor immediately so that he can give you the appropriate instructions.

Some additional precautions you could take are:

A pulse oximeter is a small device worn on the finger that measures your heart rate and the level of oxygen saturation in your blood. It is simple to use and you can get it from your pharmacy. Monitoring oxygen saturation is important because some patients with COVID-19 may have dangerously low oxygen levels but may not experience shortness of breath or tachypnea.

Indicative oxygen saturation measurements are evaluated according to the following general rules

  • 95% or higher: You have a normal amount of oxygen in your blood.
  • 91-94%: Your blood oxygen level is lower than expected. Tell your doctor and monitor it together.
  • 90% or lower: You are in a state of possible immediate danger. Tell your doctor immediately or go to a covid health facility immediately – even if you feel well. There may not be enough time between feeling well and being in a life-threatening situation.

Ask your doctor for relief

  • the cough with a medicinal suppressant. A cough associated with COVID will be dry and free of phlegm, so look for reasonable suppressants with dextromethorphan.
  • body aches or breaks your fever with ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Both are completely safe if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

In studies, it is reported that lack of vitamin D significantly increases the chances of patients with COVID-19 being admitted to the ICU as well as the possibility of death. Based on these and with data that in Greece, in a very large percentage of the population (​​>50%) at least mild vitamin deficiency has been observed, its preventive administration is at least reasonable.

You can also get vitamin D with daily fish oil supplements, which may be the most effective way. Vitamin D is rich in fatty fish such as sardines, salmon, or tuna, but also in mushrooms.
