Once this quarantine is over, all of us are about to start a new life. This social distancing has been tough for everyone, but we must remain calm by staying home, as we are being told. How to cope with all of this Coronavirus isolation, when after a couple of days we begin to lose interest in games and any other activity? It just happens naturally.
It has been a while since we went out, and this isolation is getting harder every day.
What is COVID-19 and what are the symptoms of it?
The coronavirus that has been spread all over the world is caused by a member of the coronavirus family that has never been encountered before. Like other coronaviruses, it has transferred to humans from animals (they believe it was transferred from a bat to a human). The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared it a pandemic.
According to the WHO, the most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness and a dry cough. Some patients may also have a runny nose, sore throat, nasal congestion and aches, and pains or diarrhea. Some people report losing their sense of taste and/or smell. About 80% of people who get COVID-19 experience a mild case – about as serious as a regular cold – and recover without needing any special treatment.
About one in six people, the WHO says, become seriously ill. The elderly and people with underlying medical problems such as high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, or chronic respiratory conditions, are at a greater risk of serious illness from COVID-19.
In the UK, the National Health Service (NHS) has identified the specific symptoms to look for as experiencing either:
- A high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back.
- A new continuous cough – this means you have started coughing repeatedly.
As this is viral pneumonia, antibiotics are of no use. The antiviral drugs we have against the flu will not work, and there is currently no vaccine. Recovery depends on the strength of the immune system.
On average it takes 5–6 days from when someone is infected with the virus for symptoms to show, however it can take up to 14 days.
People with mild symptoms who are otherwise healthy should self-isolate. Seek medical attention if you have a fever, a cough, and difficulty breathing. Call ahead.

Weight Loss Diet Tips During Quarantine
Here are some tips on how to treat your body and what to eat, steps that you should follow to lose weight and to keep the obesity as far as possible:
1. No more carbs!
Go again to your fridge and ignore all of the food that contains sugar, starches or carbohydrates.
Being able to do that, your hunger level will be lower and you will eat less. Ignoring carbs, you will lose appetite and also a lot of weight without having the feeling of being hungry.
Some dietitians have come to the conclusion that it’s not uncommon to lose up to 10 pounds (4.5 kg) — sometimes more — in the first week of eating this way. This weight loss includes both body fat and water weight.
2. Eat your greens!
Eat healthily! Eat vegetables, protein, and healthy fat.Eat as much protein as you can. Protein will help you reach your perfect body goal.
High protein diets can also reduce cravings and obsessive thoughts about food by 60%, reduce the desire to snack late at night by half, and make you feel full.
What proteins are we talking about?
The ones that actually taste delicious: meat, fish and seafood, eggs and plant-based proteins.
When we say you should eat less, we don’t mean the same for vegetables.
Load your plate with your vegetables so you will be eating vitamins, fiber, and minerals that help you to be healthy.
What kind of vegetables and which are the best in this situation?
Here is a list of your vegetables:broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, tomatoes, kale, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, swiss chard, lettuce, cucumber.
So, being very careful with this kind of diet, we want to succeed and so it is going to happen.Eat fats also, do not cut them completely, but at the same time be careful with them. Cutting all the fats and the carbs all at once will only slow down the process because it will be very difficult to keep up with the diet. It is almost impossible.
So here are some of the healthy fats you can use: olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, and butter. Weight loss during quarantine is the best time to happen. Get in the perfect shape and take care of your body.
To get even more fast results, do some extra exercises. Lift some weight so you can lose some weight. You will need to do exercises even if you don’t want to lose weight, being all day home is making us less productive in both physical and physical way. We need to motivate ourselves, in every possible way.
Once again, you need to stay home but at the same time to stay healthy.
Take care of yourself, and follow the given steps.
4. Manage your drinks
Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice.
They will not help you get fit, in fact, these are the most fattening drinks that you can consume or have. Drink water, a lot of water. Keep yourself hydrated. Also, keep in mind to drink water before every meal. This can make you feel you are already full. To boost your metabolism, drink coffee. And to calm and be more immune drink a lot of tea.
We care about you and your health. There is no other thing that you should concern more than your own health. Your body is your lifestyle. Your body is your happiness. Go out of this quarantine leaving that weight behind you, let it live only on your memories. Follow these steps and you will have your summer body ready before you know.
Stay home and most important stay healthy!
