Tears can also spread corona virus infection - study
The whole world is suffering from the corona virus and is trying to prevent it from spreading further through lockdown. There are more than 21 lakhs infected worldwide and more than 1 lakh 45 thousand have died. There are more than 13 thousand cases in India and more than 400 have died. Lockdown and social disturbances have greatly helped to control it, but there is still a need to defend it. While dry cough, cold, and high fever are the main symptoms of corona virus, conjunctivitis can also be a possible sign of the presence of malignant corona virus in the body. According to the researchers, in addition to cough, the corona virus also spreads through tears.
Researcher from the Department of Ophthalmology of China Three Gorges University in China, Dr. Liang revealed this. Dr. According to Liang, the corona virus can attack the eyelid in the conjunctiva layer and infect it. This means that if an infected person rubs his or her torn eye and then touches another healthy person, the virus can infect another person.

The pinking of the eye during conjunctivitis may indicate the severity of the virus in the patient. According to a report published online in Jama Afthamalji on 31 March, the more severe the corona virus condition in a patient, the greater the likelihood of conjunctivitis.

Because of these findings, doctors and nurses who are caring for patients in isolation wards are asked to wear all kinds of protective things, including masks, goggles, hats and gloves to prevent any infection.

Professor of Epidemiology and International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore. Dr. Alfred Sommer has also written an editorial on the study. Dr. According to Alfred Sommer, it is a warning to people that these infections can now spread more quickly. This means that it is spreading through people's tears, so the infection can also spread to the eye examining doctor or anyone who has been touched by the infected person after rubbing the eye.

In such cases, guidelines from the American Academy of Ophthalmology state that it is advisable not to routinely test the eyes during an epidemic.
Dr. of AIIMS Ajay Mohan says that there is no medicine or vaccine available to prevent the corona virus. Therefore, the best way to protect yourself from infection is to avoid contact. It is better that if a person is infected with the corona virus, do not get too close to it. If you have touched an infected person or his clothes, rub them and wash hands for at least 20 seconds. Do not touch your mouth, eyes or nose without washing your hands.
