the one thing you need to know to stay alive in the covid-era

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

There is a reason SARS-CoV-2 is called a novel coronavirus. We’ve never seen it before and even the experts don’t know how it’s going to act. However, there are some things that experts, and reasonably informed people, agree upon:The virus isn’t going away.The virus is killing people.Not everyone is equally vulnerable.
Every day we see on our T.V. screens the current count on how many people are known to be infected and how many people are known to have died. As I write this today the numbers are frightening:
There are nearly 11,000,000 Coronavirus cases worldwide and nearly 520,000 deaths.
In the U.S., there are 2,781,085 cases reported and 130,813 deaths and both are increasing, not decreasing as they are in many other countries. According to the CDC, “The coronavirus is spreading too rapidly and too broadly for the U.S. to get it under control as some other countries have.”
I’m by no means an expert, but I do have a PhD in International Health, a Master’s degree in Social Work, and have been working in the field, specialized in gender-specific medicine and men’s health, for more than fifty years. I’ …

Today, like every day, Eric Verdin will cycle the steep hills of Marin County. He’ll wait until noon to eat his first meal. He’ll wear a mask and stay socially distanced. He’ll be asleep no later than 11 p.m.
Despite his excellent health, the 63-year-old scientist and CEO of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging knows he must do everything he can to protect himself from this hard truth: As we age, our body’s elegant symphony of immune cells turns dissonant. We may feel fine. But our hidden defenses no longer fully shield us—and may turn against us.
As COVID-19’s case count explodes, “This is the time more than ever to adopt the healthiest lifestyle that you can,” he said. “Sleep, nutrition and exercise is the trifecta that will position you to respond to the virus in the best way possible. You’ll be in better condition to resist.”
When we’re young, our bodies develop a well-tuned network of protection against foreign invaders like the COVID-19 virus. It’s a two-tiered system. The first line of defense, the so-called innate response, acts like the Border Patrol, promptly attacking any invader. …

Mental and physical isolation due to COVID-19 has led to anxiety, fear, depression and for many. (Source: Getty images)
‘This too shall pass…’ these four words have given strength to many in these challenging times. The pandemic has had massive repercussions on our body, mind and soul, as we battle with insomnia, deal with over-active minds, process distressing information from hospital corridors and feel the pain of those who have lost their lives the world over because of COVID-19. Nothing can come close to a feeling of helplessness that many are experiencing, as we are enslaved by the left and right of our minds. Sushant Singh Rajput’s death was received with shock and despair as it unveiled many lesser known truths of the world. And then the mental health helpline numbers started making sense to all of us, who were now exhausted with the lockdown cooking and the unlocked stages of the pandemic.
Dr. Arzoo Gupta, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Government Medical College, Sector 32 agrees that there was anticipatory anxiety as many people had started hoarding grocery and other essentials. There was fear, but rationalised, with an explanation of safety. Gradually, …
