Take treatment happily

Have you tested Corona positive? Don’t worry. Take treatment happily. Wearing face mask and maintaining social distance is compulsory. Don’t go out unless it is necessary as it will increase the chances of contracting the epidemic. As far as possible, stay away from the children and the aged. Have good food and exercise daily. – Dr. Chandragupta, City Police Commissioner Kashaya won’t drive away Corona

Undergo Corona test in case of mild symptoms. Don’t be under the impression that you don’t get Corona just because you are drinking Kashaya daily. At the same time, don’t be scared if you test Corona positive as it increases blood pressure, causes breathlessness and other complications. Be brave and positive. I too had mild symptoms and I recovered after treatment. – C.B. Ryshyanth, Superintendent of Police
