Last time I was home, my whole family was +ve. They’ve all recovered, and we’re going to celebrate that recovery and my 1st salary together. We all realise that it’s something to be grateful for- to survive 2 peaks & still be here. There were worrisome hiccups along the way. But I want to say I’m proud of the way we all dealt with it. Especially my parents- my mother, who even during her illness, did teleconsultation for as many pts as she could. “there’s too many cries for help, how do i not listen”

Had to visit a store today. I was parking the car outside a society, next to the society gate across the shop. It was in no way hindering the gateway. The security guard started yelling at my mom very rudely to park it somewhere else. I did & later saw an auto in the same spot. I didn’t mind that he wanted me to park somewhere else but I didn’t like the tone he used with my mom. It was very disrespectful. Similar incident happened when I went with my friends to have dinner outside on Saturday.

I wrote a small story to explain #ImmuneResponse in #COVID19 to better understand what happens in our bodies. Sharing it here. #Tweetorial

We’ll pretend that the virus is an intruder while our house represents our body. The door of our house is a portal of entry. /1 When an intruder enters our house, we would arm ourselves with whatever we can & try to fight him. We’re not experts. So our response may be amateur, our weapons may not even be sufficient to beat him. This is similar to the innate response.
Next, we’d call the cops.
