About Event


COVID-19 outbreak, has brought the entire world on its knees. It is an unfortunate fact that a significant portion of world’s population has contracted SARS-CoV-2 infection. While we are still learning more about the virus, COVID-19 disease, its impact and treatment options; majority of us are under a varied degree of lock down reduce the chances of infection and arrest the spread.
 
Different countries are at different stage of the ‘cycle’ but the crisis is impacting the whole world in many ways including health, economy, employment and policies. People are locked in for weeks and working from home, kids are home and trying online schooling if possible, elderly members are unable to go for the irregular walks, auxiliary support system at home is paralysed, people are worried about jobs/income/loans etc.
 
What is becoming clear is that while specific treatment is not yet coming soon, focus on health and wellness is crucial in these difficult times. The individual preventive and protective measures like social distancing, handwashing, good sleep, regular exercise and nutrition (macro and micro) drive away the personal risk of getting the disease. Among the virus-contracted hosts, their different metabolic status, as determined by their diet, nutrition, age, sex, medical conditions, lifestyle, and environmental factors govern the personal fate toward different clinical severity of COVID-19.
