Self- Immunity Check

Strong Immunity is the key to combat COVID-19.

“Self-Immunity Check” is the unique solution that RADHEE has developed to reduce the burden on Health Care Infrastructure.

Entire solution is developed understanding the Indian people’s approach towards the mental and physical health, making it easy for acceptance and enrolling the people to work on it.

Corona Virus named SARS-COV2 is enveloped RNA virus which is one of the deadliest viruses as it spreads through respiratory secretions and it survives in different surfaces from 4 hours to 7 days. In many cases, post infection, patients have been reporting of re-infection making it extremely complicated virus to understand and deal with. Face mask and physical distancing of 3 feet is helping to reduce the spread but is not the solution.

People infected with COVID-19 diseases are categorised in 4 stages

  1. Asymptomatic – does not show any medical symptoms

  2. Mild Symptoms – symptoms are mild in nature and can be treated at home.

  3. Moderate Symptoms – require continuous medical attention and hospitalization

  4. Critical – require ICU care and/or life support

Researchers have mapped immune responses from COVID-19 patients, showing the body's ability to fight the virus and recover from the infection. According to the WHO, 80% of new Covid-19 cases are mild or asymptomatic not requiring Hospitalization and ICU care. Strong Immunity of human beings will be a game changer in fight against COVID-19 pandemic and it could increase asymptomatic and mild symptom patient’s proportion to 90-95%.

Stress created by negative media news, economic impact, lockdown and fear of getting infected is reducing the immunity of the citizen and many patients are elevating into moderate symptoms and critical category who require hospitalization. Strengthening the immune system will limit the impact of disease in the body to Asymptomatic or Mild Symptoms not requiring hospitalization thereby reducing deaths and burden on healthcare infrastructure.

Strong immunity will protect the body from being susceptible to diseases. Even if one gets disease, strong immunity will keep a person asymptomatic or mild symptomatic not requiring hospitalization and ICU care.

RADHEE has developed a web application “Self-Immunity Check” for people to do a self-assessment of their physical and mental health. The questionnaire and recommendations will be system driven thus giving privacy to the users to respond honestly and frankly. It will also encourage them to accept mental health as an important area for strengthening immunity and take remedial actions. Recommendations will be based on their answers that will encourage them to take corrective measures. It will help them understand on what aspect can they work on to boost their immunity and wellbeing.

Remedial measures taken to improve physical and mental health will strengthen the immunity of people and thereby improve their ability to fight COVID-19 disease. Even few percent reduction in patients requiring hospitalization would have huge gain in our fight against COVID-19 pandemic.
