The country is recovering from a sudden setback, once again, and it is devastating all around. There is death everywhere, and there is no relief to see. Now all we can do is be kind to each other, follow COVID protocol, And hope for the best.

In addition to following what doctors have advised, here are 10 small but extremely important things a positive patient patient should follow at home, and they could possibly save their lives.

1. If you have COVID, then sleep on your stomach all the time. If this is not possible due to health issues, then sleep by your side. Do not keep anything on your back, as it damages your lungs and may allow fluid to enter.
