The Celebrations for Christmas and New Year is around the corner and you would have already made the travel plans. The Pandemic is still there and at the same time numerous vaccines are also being developed. But till the time Vaccine reaches everyone, Thermometers and Oximeters should be a part of your travel resource kit.
For Covid-19, there are over 50 vaccines being developed across the world now, some from scratch, some from existing molecules developed for other diseases. Development of a vaccine is a long process that can falter at any step. There is also the issue of effectiveness — how the vaccine performs in real-life conditions against efficacy, which is performance in ideal conditions during trials.Once a candidate is identified, its safety and efficacy have to be tested over three phases, as per protocols.
There are two common devices – THERMOMETERS & OXIMETERS that can help someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 to monitor their condition and to guide decision-making .In diagnosing the symptoms for Covid-19 one requires thermometer to check for low grade fever and monitor higher fevers.For those recovering from a suspected case, guidelines state that you can leave isolation after, “You have had no fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fevers).” Both of these require an accurate thermometer to track.
