Treating COVID-19 at Home? Here Are Some of the Essentials

It pays to be prepared when you or someone you love tests positive for COVID-19. Based on experience, I would like to share some of the things you might need when treating a patient with mild symptoms at home. These essentials are for monitoring the patient’s temperature and oxygen levels, prevention of further spreading the virus, and helping ease their difficulty in breathing. Although not everyone has the same experience given their age, symptoms, medical history or conditions, and more, so it is best to consult with your doctor and report to your local government unit to be fully guided throughout the process.
