COVID Recovered: Somebody who has not visited a doctor for any sickness for so many years was forced to see one after she tested COVID Positive. “After I tested positive, I was home quarantined for 25 days. I isolated myself in my room and started taking medication. The doctor said that my lungs were 50 percent infected and I should be careful. I need to do breathing exercises and need to check my pulse and oxygen levels,” Vijayalakshmi says. 

She shares that the first rule to overcome COVID is to be brave. “You should not fear. I did my routine exercises and added breathing exercises. I ate protein food and never thought of COVID during this period. Those 15 days, I read books, talked to friends over phone and took complete rest,” she says.  Vijayalakshmi says that due to COVID, she visited a doctor many times, had medicines, blood tests and CT scans. “It was a different experience for me. Now, I have recovered and perfectly fine,” she says.
