The past week, Hans had high fever, headaches, body ache, upset tummy and severe fatigue. It lasted for four days. It was very unusual So we tested him and he was COVID-19 positive. I have to admit, initially I did feel complete panic because however much you think you are prepared, you just never completely are for something like this. Immediately Nyra started showing symptoms. She had fever and an upset tummy. I gave her cold compress and paracetamol on SoS (sic),” Sameera wrote.

Doctors are also recommending vitamin C, multivitamin. A probiotic and zinc (please check with your doctor). I’ve done everything to make them comfortable and Both are in great spirits and back to being in masti mode It’s important to remember that even though Your kids might get asymptomatic in a few days they still have to be isolated from people who haven’t been affected for 14 days to make sure it is not transmitted (sic),” the post read.

This is the time to be smart and focus on what helps . Not negative. Not fearful. Just be alert to protect yourself and others. We have to be mindful of this. It is the only way. I will continue to make my happy content because positivity is biggest strength right now Stay strong . Stay safe (sic).”
