Top 5 Things to Know Before Taking a Covid-19 vaccine | OurNewEarth

Going to take the covid-19 vaccine? Well here are some points which you need to keep in mind before taking it so the process of getting vaccinated goes smoothly

Smoking in public spaces and risks of COVID – 19 infection

It is strongly advised that people refrain from smoking outdoors and indoors. Current evidence suggests that the severity of COVID-19 infection is higher among smokers. Smoking reduces lung function, making it more difficult for the body to fight off respiratory diseases caused due to the virus.

Cigarettes: Following the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, tobacco usage (cigarettes, waterpipes, bidis, cigars, heated tobacco products) may be more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19, as the act of smoking involves contact of fingers (and possibly contaminated cigarettes) which increases the possibility of transmission of viruses from hand to mouth.
Shisha/Hookah: Smoking water pipes, also known as shisha/ hookah, often involves the sharing of mouth pieces and hoses, which could facilitate the transmission of the COVID-19 virus in communal and social gatherings, which makes physical distancing impossible.
Smoking in public places such as in restaurants, open markets as well as in cars and other vehicles, carry the risk of adults and especially children being exposed to passive smoking, causing them to develop more frequent and severe asthma attacks, ear and respiratory infections and heart diseases.
Effects of Smoking during COVID - 19

Given the health risks of tobacco, WHO recommends quitting tobacco usage. Quitting will help your lungs and heart to function better from the moment you stop. Within 20 minutes of quitting, elevated heart rate and blood pressure drop and after 12 hours, the carbon monoxide level in the bloodstream drops to normal. Within 2-12 weeks, circulation improves and lung function increases. After 1-9 months, coughing and shortness of breath decreases.

Smokers can incur a 2 to 4-fold increased risk of pneumococcal lung disease, a disease associated with high mortality.

Smoking any kind of tobacco reduces lung function and increases the risk of many respiratory infections and can increase the severity of respiratory diseases.

COVID-19 is an infectious disease that primarily attacks the lungs. Smoking impairs lung function making it harder for the body to fight off coronaviruses and other respiratory diseases as the lung function is already compromised.

Prolonged screen time and its effects on Children during the Pandemic

The presence of digital devices is an inexhaustible subject for various debates and research, but regardless of the results that can be reached, it is impossible to isolate today’s children from the screens as it comes across as every day requirement. Long hours spent in front of the screen due to academic and extra-curricular or simply entertainment purposes can lead to long-lasting repercussions

Bad Posture, Back Aches, Neck and Shoulder Strain
It is a common sight to see our children hunched up over a device. Unfortunately, it happens so often that the hunch is there even when the device is not.

In addition to this, with no discipline in posture, while attending hours of classes every day, children tend to not stick to a designated study area with proper furniture leading them to slouch or sit lazily, all contributing to even more posture-related issues.

Eye Strain
Dry eyes, a burning sensation, problems in focusing are all symptoms of eye strain that all device users commonly face. For children, it can be very harmful as bright lights of the screen, high screen contrasts, glare and flickering images can take a toll on their eyes.

Several studies have shown that spread of COVID-19 is favored by cool and dry conditions. Experience with other viruses of the same family such as the SARS-COV1 and MERS-COV has also been similar. The virus is more viable and reproduces more effectively in these conditions.

In addition, respiratory droplets, which are considered vehicles for the virus, are more stable in dry conditions. The increased occurrence of common viral infections causing cold and cough also increases the propensity of droplet formation.

The inner lining of the nose is more prone to small ruptures in cold climates, creating further opportunities for the virus to invade.
