Vice President Venkaiah Naidu has credited his speedy recovery from Coronavirus to his physical fitness, mental tenacity and desi food. In a long blog posted from his facebook account, the Vice President said that he firmly believed that it was his physical fitness and strict adherence to traditional food which ensured his recovery from the disease despite his old age and him being a diabetes patient.

“I could overcome COVID-19 infection because of my physical fitness, mental tenacity, regular physical exercise like walking and yoga, apart from eating only desi (traditional) food,” the Vice President wrote in his blog. He also said that he always preferred to eat traditional food and continued the practice during the quarantine period

Trump’s rapid recovery from Covid-19, while welcome, ‘amplifies’ public misunderstanding of disease

Health officials have struggled to convey the seriousness of Covid-19 to many Americans. President Trump’s rapid recovery from the disease, while welcome by all, makes the challenge even more difficult, Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases acknowledged.

Trump’s quick bounce-back from his infection will likely underscore the mistaken belief some people have that the disease does not present significant health risks, Fauci said in an interview with STAT.

“We’re all glad that the president of the United States did not suffer any significant consequences of it,” Fauci said. “But … because he is such a visible figure, it amplifies some of that misunderstanding that people have that it’s a benign disease and nobody

It was a difficult phase but I am really grateful for the kind of support system we had from Hockey India and SAI who made every effort to get us the best treatment,” Kumar said.

Unlike his other compatriots who had tested positive and recovered, Kumar had developed venous thrombosis, a condition in which there are blood clots. It is one of the many complications related to Covid-19 recovery phase.

Arm squeezes with blood pressure cuffs may help stroke recovery

After administering clot-busting drugs to treat a stroke, using blood pressure cuffs to squeeze each arm might aid recovery, a new, small Chinese study suggests.

In the technique — called remote ischemic post-conditioning — the flow of oxygen-rich blood is repeatedly interrupted and restored using blood pressure cuffs on the arms. Earlier studies have found that the technique may prevent tissue damage by helping the body handle changes in blood flow and the damage that may occur from a stroke, researchers say.

“The findings show a promising future prospect of remote ischemic post-conditioning and have important clinical implications,” said researcher Dr. Guo-liang Li, of First Affiliated Hospital of Xi’an and Jiaotong University in Xi’an, China.

“As we all know, the therapy has a lot of advantages,” he said, calling it noninvasive, easy-to-use, cost-effective and safe.

Even though clot-busting drugs have saved many stroke patients, 32% do not have a favorable

Trump hails experimental treatment for his virus recovery, without providing evidence

President Donald Trump credited an experimental drug treatment with helping his recovery from Covid-19 and suggested his diagnosis could be a “blessing in disguise” in the nation’s battle against the pandemic. But there is no way for the president or his doctors to know whether the drug had any effect.

In a new White House video posted Wednesday evening, Trump said his illness had shed light on an experimental antibody cocktail that he tied to his improved condition. Seemingly sensitive to the fact that his treatment course has been far more comprehensive than the care received by average Americans, he promised to swiftly get the drug approved for broader use — and distribute it for free — even though he does not have the power to order that himself.

“I want everybody to be given the same treatment as your president, because I feel great,” Trump said in a video

‘Weekend Update’ mocks Donald Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis: ‘I wish him a very lengthy recovery’

“Saturday Night Live” made light of Donald Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis during the Season 46 premiere’s “Weekend Update” segment.

Hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che returned to the “Weekend Update” desk for the first time since the pandemic shut down production on the long-running NBC sketch show. They immediately jumped on the opportunity to mock the president for contracting the potentially deadly virus after downplaying the severity of the pandemic for months.

The hosts pulled no punches in their rebuke, mocking Trump just hours after it was announced that he was taken to Walter Reed Medical Center for treatment.

“Say what you will about 2020, but it’s got moves,” Jost began the segment. “This news was a lot for us to process a day before we came back on the air after four months off — and it all happened so fast. I woke up yesterday and heard the president had
