When a 33-year-old, 4-months pregnant female came to the practitioner, she looked pale and completely exhausted. She exhibited symptoms for COVID-19 - shortness of breath and tiredness. She couldn’t walk 10 meters without losing her breath. On the previous day, her mother was tested positive and hospitalized. So she was worried as she lives with her mother and shares the same bedroom. She had also gone to the hospital but due to shortage of facilities, she was sent back home, so felt helpless.
On 24 May 2020, the practitioner gave her the following remedy:
#1. CC4.1 Digestion tonic + CC4.8 Gastroenteritis + CC9.4 Children’s diseases + CC10.1 Emergencies + CC13.1 Kidney & Bladder tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC19.3 Chest infections chronic + CC19.6 Cough chronic + CC19.7 Throat chronic…one dose every hour for 6 hours, followed by 6TD and then TDS on improvement.
As it is not known how this virus affects pregnancy, as a precaution, the practitioner made her a combo to help her through pregnancy:
#2. CC3.1 Heart tonic + CC8.2 Pregnancy tonic + CC8.9 Morning sickness + CC12.1 Adult tonic…TDS
Two days later on 26 May, the patient reported that she no longer felt tired and that the shortness of breath had disappeared. To be on the safe side, she was advised to continue #1 till end of June and reduce to OD until the pandemic disappears from the country, and #2 until delivery.
