Even a slight temperature, cough or cold in kids raises an alarm at a time when Covid- 19 is fast spreading across the country. A phone call or a visit to the doctor confirms your worry as they ask you if anyone at home or locality has been affected by the deadly pandemic. If the sickness persists, then the doctor recommends the mother and the child to take a blood test. Having a child at home and suspecting Covid-19 is all too difficult to handle.
People living in the risky zones are sending their babies/ toddlers to their natives to keep their little ones safe. Others are trying to entertain them indoors with fun activities. With the Covid- 19 cases as infections steadily rise, it's important to take precautionary steps and not take it lightly.
However, don’t panic and follow these few steps which are recommended by health experts to keep your baby safe and away from the COVID-19 virus.
