Author(s): Dr. Jayashree Santhanam
Corona viruses are a large family of viruses that are known to cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. Corona virus causes disease in the variety of human and animals as well as domestic animals. Most well studied corona virus are murine virus, (MuCoV), betacoronavirus, Mouse hepatitis virus, that long provides the model systems for the study of the CNS such as encephalitis and multiple sclerosis and acute hepatitis. Person gets infected through respiratory droplets of other infected person, droplets generated from infected person like coughing, sneezing, or talks. Touching the face with contaminated hands are high risk for transmission of infection. Respiratory droplets do not remain in the air for long. It can be found in the metals, glass, plastic surfaces, now recent research found that it can live in shoes. Complicating factor is about 25% of people are asymptomatic during transmission of disease. The immune system can be activated by a lot of different things that the body doesn’t recognize as its own. These are called antigens. Examples of antigens include the proteins on the surfaces of bacteria, fungi and viruses. When these antigens attach to special receptors on the immune cells (immune system cells), a whole series of processes are triggered in the body. Once the body has come into contact with a disease-causing germ for the first time, it usually stores information about the germ and how to fight it. In 1800, Dr. Hahnemann found Belladonna as prophylaxis for Scarlet fever in epidemic. He also treated 200 cases of typhus cases with losing only 2 people, where the allopathic treatment during that time had mortality rate of 30%.
Conclusion: Though from Hahnemann time during pandemics homeopathy have given the best results, while the mortality was very less when compared to modern medicine. This pandemic now, in 2020, we are fighting for our rights and we will get best results, and homoeopathy medicine should reach each and every person in this world as the second largest practised medicine in whole world.
