Prof. Dr. Md. Titu Miah, a Councilor of Bangladesh College of Physicians & Surgeons (BCPS) and ex-Secretary General, Bangladesh Society of Medicine provides an excellent overview on corona virus and COVID-19. He clarifies when to suspect corona virus infection, what to expect after it’s onset and describes the stages of COVID-19 if it progresses to complexity.
He also provides generalized guideline for the doctors on how to identify COVID-19 patients if they come with the complaint of breathlessness and how to treat them.
As a WHO fellow of Rheumatology, Professor Miah also provides specialized advice for the patients who are suffering from Rheumatic diseases. As some of the medicine consumed for this disease suppresses the immune system, the patients need to be extra careful. In the wake of a shortage of their medicine, staying without medication for some time might increase the intensity of the disease, however, it is not life threatening if other alternative medicine is consumed
