Corona are a large group of virus, more common among animals in rare cases. The scientist give “Zoonotic” meaning, these can be transmitted from animals to humans. These virus can make people sick, to undertake respiratory track illness, similar to a common cold. Human corona viruses most commonly spread from one infected person to others through:
1.      Air coughing and sneezing.
2.     Close personal contact such as touching of shaking hands.
3.     Touching an object or surface with the virus on it, like mouth, nose or eyes. Rarely before washing your hands with fecal contamination.

Soar throat, running nose, Headache, Cough, Fever, Feeling of being unwell, weak immune system, Respiratory track illness like pneumonia or bronchitis.

PREVENTION: Washing your hands often with soap and water; Avoiding touching nose, eyes, mouth with unwashed hands; Avoid close contact with people who are sick; if you are mildly sick, keep yourself hydrated, stay at home and rest; See your health care.
Prevention from Viral Diseases
‘Virus’ are very small, complex particles of nucleic acids and proteins which act as infectious agents and replicate (reproduce) only inside the living cells of other organisms. Virus can infect all forms of animals, plants to micro-organisms including bacteria. The Latin word ‘Virion’ stands for ‘poison’. The first discovery of Tobacco mosaic virus was made by D. Ivanovsky in 1892. There are millions types of virus in all kinds of natural environment. They are very small in size, 20 to 1000 nm, about one hundredth of certain bacteria, and can only be observed through electron microscope (not by any optical microscope). The virion particles contain the genetic chemical of DNA or RNA covered with protein coat called ‘capsid’. These particles may get protected by lipid membrane when they acquire crystalline form outside their host cells.
They are now being considered as form of life that interact with other living organisms because: they possess the quality to reproduce similar young ones; presence of genetic material single or double stranded DNA or RNA; can undergo changes (mutations) due to change of host or environment. The nonliving properties are that they do not live independently; do not have the organelles of ribosome, mitochondria, nucleus, chromosomes; they are unable to produce their own proteins, energy and genetic material.
Viral diseases:
Their illnesses are communicable (direct or indirect) and many are fatal. The common human disorders are---Influenza, Chickenpox, Smallpox, Polio, AIDS, Herpes, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Bad cold, Shingles, Viral Gastro-enteritis, Meningitis, Viral-hepatitis, Dengue fever, Trachoma, Chicken-goonia, Viral pneumonia, Rabies and many more. Most common ways of infections from carrier person to other persons include:
•          Breathing in air borne droplets contaminated with virus.
•          Taking food and drinking water polluted with virus or containing microbes infected with virus.
•          Having sexual contact with infected person.
•          Wrong type of blood transfusion.
•          Indirect transmission from infected persons through mosquitoes, ticks, field mice, cats, dogs, other attacking animals etc.
•          Direct contact or touching with certain host plants.
•          Touching body surface (skin) or body fluid contaminated with virus.
Resistance from diseases:
Immunity is the ability to abstain, withstand and oppose the disease causing organisms (pathogens) and their toxic products (poisons) in the host. The study of immune system is referred as immunology. Antigens are the wrong substances when introduced into the body of host, excite or stimulate the production of antibodies. Antigens are generally proteins but a few may be carbohydrates, lipids or nucleic acids. Antibodies are proteins in the form of immune-globins (IgS) which are produced by B- lymphocytes and plasma cells. The antibodies get generated by mature plasma cells at very fast rate (about 2000 molecules per minute). The immune-globulins are grouped in five iso-types, namely, Ig-A, Ig-D, Ig-E, Ig-G and Ig-M. They differ from each other in size, charge, carbohydrate contents and amino acid composition, for instance, Ig- G has small size, most abundant (about 75% of total) and effective, whereas, Ig-G is five times larger in size.
Proper use of Vaccination:  
Vaccine is specific medicine, used to promote the production of antibodies. It is prepared from the suspension or extract of dead or weakened germs of a disease which can be injected into a healthy or diseased person. It helps to provide temporary or permanent active or passive immunity by inducing antibodies formation. The fundamental truth of vaccination or immunization is based on the property of ‘memory’ of prevention and protection of diseases through microbes (immune system). Vaccines were not created as treatment of virus; rather these are tools which can be used to prevent certain viral disorders---Polio virus during early childhood in five doses, MMR from 9 to 15 months in one dose, Chicken pox up to 12 months in five doses, Hepatitis-A and B in the form of passive immune serum globulins, Measles virus etc. We should realize the concept that prevention is better than cure.
Important viral diseases with ill effects and prevention:
Influenza: It is caused by highly infectious Myxovirus. It results in fever, headache, pain all over body, bad effects on nose, throat and air passage, sneezing and cough. In neglected cases, pneumonia, bad cold and ear infection may also cause complications. There is no vaccine and specific drug, but doctor advice is beneficial.
Measles: Caused by a type of Paramyxovirus and transmitted by direct contact, cough and sneezing through patient. In the early stage it causes chill, infection of nose and fever but later on red blocky skin rashes. The disease can be prevented by isolation of patient, protection from cold and direct air, cleaning body with warm water, Edmoston B-vaccine prepared from chick embryo and injecting globulins.
Mumps: Caused by a type of Paramyxovirus through direct contact with patient and saliva. It results in headache, backache, excess spoiling of saliva and taste buds, swelling in jaws and ears. Asprin is given to relieve pain, advised rest, give alternate hot and cold pack to neck.
Chickenpox: Caused by Varicella virus through direct contact with patient and indirect use of infected objects of patient. It brings fever, skin eruptions with red spots, vesicles and scab formation in about 36 hours. The scabs are not formed like small pox. The disease can be prevented by isolation of patient and the use of Zoster Immune globulins (zig). The patient should avoid scraping, scabs be collected and burnt. The persons taking care should boil and clean the articles used by patient.
Trachoma: It is inflammatory disease of eyes. The infection results in swelling, discomfort and discharge of fluids from eyes. It is caused due to direct contact of tears from patient or indirect contact of towels, pillows, handkerchief of patients. The antibiotic commonly used to cure the disease.
Rabies (Hydrophobia): It is caused by Street virus due to bite of infected dogs, cats etc. It damages central nervous system, causes severe pain, spasm of muscles in chest and choking of throat. Its treatment was discovered by Louis Pasteur in the form of vaccine given in 14 doses, one on each day. The vaccine is prepared from spinal cord of rabbit to produce antibodies in patient.
Poliomyelitis: It is caused by Enterovirus due to pollution in water, food spread by housefly. The disease damages nerves, many blood vessels, muscles and bones. Its first vaccine was prepared by Jonas Salk by killing poliovirus by formaldehyde. Now Sabin and coworkers have prepared oral polio vaccine consisting of living but tamed virus.
AIDS:  it is caused by Leukemia virus (HIV) due to infections in human T-cells. It spreads through intra venous drug users, use of infected blood by transfusion, immoral implementation of sex among persons infected with virus. The ill effects include loss of weight, fever of unknown origin, brain tumor, hemorrhage (bleeding), and swelling of lymph glands, mouth ulcer or even death. Certain medicines are being used now to delay or avoid death.
Dengue fever: It is Flavirdeae ravivirus disease spread by Aedes mosquitoes. The virus of dengue fever was first isolated by R.W. Ross from India in 1953. This fever develops its own lifelong immunity. It causes nausea, vomiting, bleeding from nose and gums, body ache and joint pains. Use mosquito repellents, mosquito coils or vapors, eliminate mosquito breeding grounds, and wear long sleeved shirts and long trousers to prevent mosquito bites. The repellents containing DEET, picaridin and oil of lemon, eucalyptus or para-menthane are useful. Do not spray the repellent on skin under your clothing. Use luke warm water and fruit juice for relief.
Chikungunia: It is Togaviridae alphavirus disease with similar source of infector and symptoms as dengue fever. It was first reported from Tanzania but now prevalent in many tropical areas. The fever remains effective for three to seven weeks. Joint pain is severe which lasts for a few months. Proper help should be received from doctor for care of dengue and chikungunia.
Help to the Society:  Every person should be conscious for personal health and take care of society. The qualified persons can well understand about the causes, ill effect, prevention and treatment of common diseases. They can also seek the help of government, social and charitable organizations. Everyone should take care of personal balanced diet, daily exercise, time for prayers and meditation, spare time for self less voluntary service to the society. Develop faith in Divine Lord to lead peaceful life through His kind bliss.

If you are afraid of Corona, you can take a free consultation with psychologists over the phone.
Psychologists, Dr Ravindra Puri (94160 91610) and Dr. Daljit Singh Kalra (94162 89087) will give free consultation on phone to the public, in an effort to get rid of the superfluous fears related to the Coronavirus and about COVID-19 the disease related to it. The public can talk about their problems on the mobile number from 11 am to 3 pm.

Wash hands of children with love and not fear! - Dr Puri
Dr Ravinder Puri, a leading Psychologist, said that there is no need to panic or fear the coronavirus disease. One just needs to be vigilant. He warned the residents of the city that the atmosphere of the house should not be made stressful by talking about Corona on TV or social media all day. Instead, teach young children to clean hands by referring to hygiene and cleanliness rather than teaching them to wash their hands by horrifying the corona. Because this difficult time will be over soon, but if the child embraced an unwanted fear, that will be really very tough to get rid of.
He suggested that do not watch the Coronavirus related news more than two or three times a day. He warned that not everything is true on social media, so do not share it with family unless it is verified or is coming from an authentic source. Stay alert, be aware but do not be afraid.

Take care of yourself and family: Dr Daljit Singh
Dr Daljit Singh Kalra, another psychologist, has called upon the common man that there is no need to fear Corona, but instead, it is prudent to take some precautions and take care of your family. Such tragedies have come in the past but humans have overcome them with their strong will. Similarly, we can save ourselves and others from this disease as well, by following the instructions issued by the government and administration. He said that seeing the news going on, in and around the media in relation to this particular disease, many people get scared due to which they need to be counselled by a psychologist to get relief. For the last few days, there have been calls from people afraid of Corona, such persons need psychological help to get rid of this unwanted fear.

For questions related to psychological fears of any of your family members, do make a call on the above phone numbers. Both Dr Daljit and Dr Puri shall be happy to answer your queries.  

Here below is some additional and useful information:
The Coronavirus Crisis Is Fueled by Stress and Fear
High levels of stress and fear before the crisis began created a perfect storm.
Much has been written and discussed about thoughtful public health approaches to the current coronavirus crisis. Simple precautionary steps, such as frequent hand washing and staying home from school or work if sick, have been highlighted. The best available data from the CDC, WHO, and other medical groups suggest that while this new virus is more deadly than the typical flu, it is much less deadly than recent outbreaks regarding the swine flu, bird flu, SARS, Ebola, and so forth.

Certainly, these illnesses cause havoc for many, with ripple effects regarding just about every institution, organization, and industry in impacted areas. And vulnerable populations, such as the elderly and those with significant health problems to begin with, are apparently most vulnerable to the illness. Yet, this time around, the level of panic seems much worse than in the past, and much of it seems centered around psychological, rather than rational, reactions.
There is a confluence of factors that make this particular health scare especially challenging for the public. First, stress and fear, in general, are at very high levels. The American Psychological Association conducts a comprehensive Stress in America survey each year, and stress levels have never been higher.
People are also very concerned and fearful about a variety of societal issues, such as rapid climate change, frequent deadly gun violence, increasingly harsh and polarizing political discourse, increased economic disparity, and so forth. Additionally, major media outlets, as well as social media, in their various efforts for attention, clicks, and revenue, tend to shout loudly and report news in a hysterical manner. As the old journalism saying goes, “if it bleeds, it leads,” meaning that highly visual, graphic, and provocative news is highlighted, and it sells.
Thus, since the level of fear, anxiety, and stress had been so high before the outbreak of the coronavirus, when the virus started, it was a bit like putting a match to kerosene fumes. It ignited! Additionally, companies, educational institutions, and others are being especially cautious and trying to do what others do in an effort to perhaps avoid blame and act prudently.

However, as this current crisis unfolds and develops, having a heightened level of stress and fear can only make adaptation and management of the crisis worse. After all, why exactly are people buying so much toilet paper from the big box stores or avoiding Corona beer? It simply makes no sense to do so.
Hysteria in a population can emerge and be fueled easily when fear is in the air to begin with. There are many examples of this phenomenon. Perhaps we all need to take a long and deep healing breath, remind ourselves that the fear and stress which so many people are experiencing put us at risk for hysterical and panicked reactions rather than rational, evidence-based ones, and be sure to follow sensible public health officials’ advice about washing hands frequently and staying home if sick. The current crisis seems to be as much of a psychological one as it is a medical one.

Significance of Grandparents to Grandchildren - Dr TN Chugh

Significance of Grandparents to Grandchildren - Dr TN Chugh

Significance of Grandparents to Grandchildren
Grandparents play a definite great influence on the lives of grandchildren. The relationship is irreplaceable and unforgettable bond. It is a beautiful link and fulfilling experiences that life can give. Most of their significance to their grandchildren definitely seems through their support. The children and grandchildren find unique acceptance in their relationships with grandparents who definitely provide emotional and mental benefits. They can be major support in family instructions and are very often role models and mentors for their younger generation. They are also historians with teaching values, installing ethnic heritage to pass on family traditions.
A grandchild explained that my grandparent has strong influence to love, encourage and support me. My parents have faster strong relationship between grandparents and their children. They benefit and support us emotionally. We have observed that grandparents are the parents of a person’s father or mother, being paternal or maternal. They are second relatives to share 25% genetic overlap. Thus grandparents are a generation older than one parents {being parent of one’s father or mother}.
Factors of Closeness among Grandparents to Grandchildren:
1.      Grandparents are strongly amazing. They (grandma or grandpa} have heart of Gold and always have time for grandchildren.
2.     We may not be rich and famous but our grand parents are priceless.
3.     Grandparents are God’s gifts to children and they can see hear and feel because they have to give at mature and fast rate.
4.     God may not be present everywhere, so He has made surprising grand parents.
5.     Blessed are those who benefit with full struggle, hug and hope, laugh and listen, praise and pamper—for they shall be called grandparents. They always love well but never feel old.
6.     Grandparents are a treasure in our family—as a gift of great price (God). They are quite nice, special and benevolent.
7.     Grandparents are sort of sprinkle over the lives of little children because they are delightful blends of laughter, caring deeds, wonderful stories and love.
8.    Every child should get the chance to feel the love and warmth of both the grandparents.
9.     There is unconditional brand of love with potent role of helping and develop trust.
10.Provide safe place (may be away from their relatives). Bring a sense identity and family history.
11.  Enjoy the feeling of stability, share activities and tender support for parents.
Greatness for Parents through Grandparents:
I know that they love me since I was born and more so I had great respect and knowledge for them.
O. Grandparents, like heroes are necessary for children’s growth as being supporting and cherishing.
O. A grandparent is the renounced parent, a great teacher and a little-bit best friend.
O. They have unconditional love, great kindness, patience, humor comfort and lesson of love.
O. Grandparents make the world softer, a little kinder and a little warmer.
O. They are Divine gift and we are actual gifts to them. No bdy can do for grand children, what grandparents do.
O. If we are lucky enough to visit grandparents, cherish and celebrate them to the best.
O. Grand parents are gifts to every family to make it smile and enjoy with best efforts.
O.  The relationship is irreplaceable and unforgettable bond. It is most beautiful and fulfilling experiences, life could give.
O. Every child should get the chance to feel the love and the warmth of both grand parents.

Spend More Time with Grand parents:
 Call them. Pick up the phone and invite them. Get to know them with sincerity, like you already acknowledge their residence. Try to visit them regularly. Listen to their life stories. Love them with all your heart. It helps life to flow along. It adds our relationships meaning and adds the real true life. Thus the children generally grow up to justify their key role models in their lives. It seems that grandmother has taught the most important knowledge in life, to encourage the relationship.
There are certain situations when the grandparents tend to strike good old days; the children are seen but very hard; the grandchildren are not considered as good or flexible; they are not expected to work as per instructions and fail to share the desired feelings; They do not take judgments even through court decisions; they may say “no” for particular advice. Taking these precautions ahead of time can delete the function wit kids and the grandparents tend to spend special and distinct time from the whole family.
The new child may be born at the age of 22 to 35 year to certain parents. The grandparents may achieve the personality at the age of 55 to 70 years. The great grandparents may survive beyond 85 to 95 years of age.    
Grandparents have the Reality, Ability and Experience:
Every child deserves the grandparent who will love definite conditions. Every grandparent needs the opportunity to love and beloved. Thus grandchildren and grandparents have very special connection.
# Grandparents have many things to teach, both by their modeling and experience. Their knowledge can care and enrich the lives of grandchildren in a variety of ways.
# Children learn with attitudes and values. They show how to be good citizens. They are witnesses to their faith and they are models for aging. They can guide and teach to their grandchildren
#. Most grandchildren welcome the opportunity to try something new with grandparents.
#. Grandparents try personalized birthday cards for children. They give certificates and proper gifts for house on special date.
#. They can build memories by working on joint project or developing a mental hobby like stamp or coin collecting, T-shirt, game material, special food etc.
#. The lives of communication can be kept open by sending stories, jokes, riddles or tails by e-mail.
#. Grandparents are unique models and mentors. The grandchildren will determine the experiences, activities and advantages that can be shared.
#. Grandparents can apply to the court, consult advocates; improve household, channels, plants safety of home etc.
#. They also provide new focus for family relationship and can give good intimacy. This can get lost along the way—enriching lives across three generations. Their relationship is invaluable for everybody.
Loose Relationship among Grandparents and Grandchildren:
Involved grandparents can be life savers. They can reinforce discipline strategies; give advice to new parents who provide baby sitting on these rare and appreciated conditions.
They may fail to request more grandchildren; Handover grandkids to any one who wants to hold them; Try to raise grandkids you did your own children; Break bad time rules; Disregard instructions about discipline; Discuss low or high body weight of baby; Criticize food choice of their parents; Ignore health requirement.
