Jamshedpur, June 30: Srinath College of Education at Dindli in Adityapur organised a virtual session on ‘How to increase Health and Safety Awareness in Individuals.’ The keynote address was delivered by Dr Pallavi Gautam (MBBS, MD, Consultant Anesthesiologist and Senior Resident at MGM Medical College).
In the course of her virtual keynote address, Dr Gautam observed, “Be proud to say ‘Namaste’ by joining your palms in acknowledgement or greetings as there is absolutely no need to shake hands for the same purposes. Our traditional ‘Namaste’ is more necessary now as has been felt by most of the international citizenry including world leaders who use the Indian traditional gesture to avoid physical contact and stave off infections.”
Dr Pallavi Gautam discussed the COVID situation threadbare including symptoms, how and why people get infected by the virus, the preventive measures and curative processes. “Perhaps, by now, you know what the preventive measures are. Make sure you wear your masks while venturing out of your homes, avoid crowds and ensure physical distancing, wash your hands with soap or use sanitizers when out of your homes.”
The senior resident Doctor at MGM Hospital informed that it was not necessary that all COVID positive patients be admitted to hospitals for treatment. “Home isolation, proper medication, nutritious diet and exercise are ideal during home isolation.”
Dr Gautam urged that COVID vaccinations were the foremost protective shields against viral infection. She asked people not to fall prey to rumors but get inoculated at the earliest at the nearest vaccination centre.
Her talk was followed by a question answer session. The virtual session was joined by Chairman of Srinath College of Education, Sukhdeo Mahto, Secretary Gurudev Mahto, faculty members and students. The welcome address was delivered by Jayashree Singh,
In-charge of Health and Hygiene Cell and vote of thanks was offered by Rachna Rashmi.
