Executive Chairperson of Biocon Limited, Kiranshaw pens her personal experience of winning over COVID19
My first symptoms were a mild feverish feeling late evening on 16th August. I had felt similar symptoms in early June and I tested negative so I just took a Crocin and thought it would take care of it. The next morning though, I continued to feel feverish and I measured it – 99°F. That’s when I decided to test myself and my entire household as I have my 89 year old mother, a cancer survivor and my 71 year old husband, a cancer patient to worry about.
I immediately self quarantined in a separate room and waited anxiously for the test results. At 5 pm I was told that I tested positive but that everyone else at home including my staff tested negative. Mercifully, the virus spared my mom and my husband.
I asked for the CT (Cycle Threshold) value to assess my viral load and when I saw it was 23, I felt the load was safe enough to be home quarantined under tele-supervision. Dr Murli Mohan from Narayana Health, Bengaluru and Dr Shashank Joshi from Lilavati hospital, Mumbai, were my key medical supervisors.
I was put on a course of Favipiravir, Azithromycin and Paracetamol. Apart from this, I continued with my daily dose of Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc, Baby Aspirin and Chyavanprash! Not to mention my twice a week 200mg dose of HCQ!
