Dealing with over 4000 patients and having themost basic of facilities, Dr Shankara used what he had to hand along with common sense.
Every Patient within a day or two of Early treatments showed improvement.
Using, Sunlight, Ventilation and Distancing / Isolating Dr Shanakara pitched a "Covid tent and set up red lines.
Double Masked, used a white label coat and Visor and was able to avoid all cross infections.
Antihistamines - Steroids , Hydroxychloroquine
He informed his community to seek medical assistance the moment they had any flu-like symptoms.
He bravely decided to make himself available to see people as soon as possible; even if it put him at risk.
It was impotant for him to understand the dieases so having people come in assisted in his understanding on how the illness worked.
The presentation of Covid in the first 7 days was indistinguishable from the flu.
He quickly noticed 5 patients that presented with brethlessness exactly a week later.
This was then a hypersensitivity (type 1 like an Allergy) phase;
So he adopted treatments using steroids
He tried antihistamine - Promethazine which appeared to work on breathless patients over night.
He also used Ivermectin when he noticed filarias.
He noticed that we are dealing with a pulmonary hypersensitivity - not a viral pneumonia.
Which can be cleared up within 24 hours.
Given he has 4000 not out he sees no need to work with Vaccines with the current safety data.
His Advise is to use Clinical Diagnosis.
Never rely a test to provide a Diagnosis.
He watches for constant improvement using good clinical medicine.
Understanding where you are in the progress of the disease is paramount in determining what you use to treat the disease.
