Viral Infection: Kolkatans Advised to Stay Home, Wash Hands Frequently

A viral outbreak has swept Kolkata, with clinics across the city flooded with patients suffering from fever, runny nose, and sore throat.

Doctors say the infection is spreading through tiny droplets that emanate during sneezing or coughing. They have urged people to take preventive measures such as wearing masks and washing their hands frequently.

“The infection is self-limiting in most cases and people recover within a few days,” said Dr. Subir Bhattacharya, a physician at the Calcutta Medical College and Hospital. “However, it can be serious in the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions.”

He advised people with symptoms to stay home and avoid contact with others. If you have to go out, wear a mask to protect others from getting infected,” he said.

The health department has stepped up surveillance and is conducting tests of suspected cases. So far, no deaths have been reported.

The outbreak comes at a time when the city is still recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. Doctors are concerned that the viral infection could further strain the healthcare system.

They have urged people to remain vigilant and take preventive measures to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Here are some tips to prevent the spread of the viral infection:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Dispose of used tissues properly.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Get vaccinated against influenza.

If you experience symptoms of the viral infection, such as fever, runny nose, and sore throat, see a doctor.
