MoH issues new guidelines for post-Covid care

New Delhi: The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare stressed on ayurvedic intervention to manage post-COVID conditions in its latest guidelines issued on Sunday for recovered patients, including use of chyawanprash and AYUSH medicines.
In the guidelines, the Ministry recommended the use of immunity-boosting medicines like Ayush Kwath and Samshamani Vati on a daily basis, for effective recovery from post-COVID health conditions.
“In the clinical practice, chyawanprash is believed to be effective in post-recovery period,” a Ministry advisory said while listing yoga, pranayama and daily walks among the other suggestions.
At the individual level, the Ministry advised people to strictly follow protocols like wearing face masks, washing hands, maintaining social distance, and other respiratory hygiene.
It also suggested involvement in regular household chores, if health permitted. “Professional work should be resumed in a graded manner,” the Ministry advisory added.
Stressing the need to self-monitor one’s health at home, the Ministry advised recuperating persons to check body temperatures and blood pressure on a regular basis. It also asked them to take oxygen readings on pulse oximeters on the advice of doctors. —Agencies
