A brief lecture has been given by Dr. Deepak, CMO (Anesthetist) and power point presentation has been done by Dr. Pranjal, SMO (Surgeon) for prevention of Corona Virus. The program was organized to bring  awareness about the Corona Virus among the personnel and school children. Dr. Deepak informed that the virus has shown evidence of human-to-human transmission , with the number of cases quickly climbing into  thousands by late January 2020 and several countries across Europe, North America and especially the Asia-Pacific reporting the cases. Its incubation period (time from exposure to onset of symptoms) ranges from 2 to 14 days, but there is evidence that it may be contagious during this period and possibly also for several days after recovery. Symptoms include fever, coughing and breathing difficulties, and it can be fatal. Anyone who suspects that they are carrying the virus is advised to wear a protective mask and seek medical advice by calling a doctor.
At the end Suresh Sharma, DIGP M&N Sector also shared his view on above issue. Suresh Sharma, DIGP M&N Sector in his speech mentioned about the  symptoms  of corona virus which include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and diarrhoea, and may vary from slight to very severe. Cases of severe infection can result in pneumonia, kidney failure, and death. Upper respiratory symptoms such as sneezing,  runny nose or sore throat are less frequent. The Ministry of Health  has  asked  that people practice a good standard of hygiene, such as washing hands regularly. Those who are unwell should wear a mask and see a doctor immediately.
He stated that this program   has been  started with an objective to maintain high level of awareness  among the public. The program has been very informative & successful as there has been 45 minutes of questionnaire  debate from the children’s of KV School, Langjing.
