AIIMS doctors said on Saturday that patients of COVID-19, who are undergoing treatment at home, should not take Remedesivir medicine and should be hospitalized if the oxygen level goes below 94. The doctors were addressing a webinar on the subject of treatment and care in the home for COVID-19 patients. Dr. Neeraj Nischal of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) said, “Remedesivir medicine should not be taken at home. Maintaining positive attitude and regular exercise is essential for the patients living in separate houses. ”
Dr. Manish of AIIMS said that patients should be admitted to the hospital if the oxygen level goes below 94. Along with this, while examining the level of oxygen, attention should also be paid to aspects such as age of the patient, chronic diseases. However, Dr. Neeraj said that 80 percent of the infected patients show mild symptoms and suggested that RT-PCR should be done in the second test only if the infection is not confirmed in the first test. During the discussion, the doctors advised that the patients should take the medicine according to the instructions and at the right time.
