Coronavirus Recovery: Feeling weak after recovering from COVID-19? Here is what you should do

Team HealthCult

More than 80 per cent of the COVID-19 patients are recovering at home only with teleconsultations. After recovering from COVID there is another problem being faced by the patients, which is weakness. 

Patients with mild COVID-19 symptoms take around two weeks to recover, while patients with moderate and severe infection take around four weeks to recover. But even after recovering from the COVID virus, most people experience weakness in the body. In such a situation, people should take care of basic things like healthy eating and keeping themselves hydrated in order to recover faster.

If you are someone who has recovered from covid or if you have someone in your family who has recovered, here is what you can do to overcome the weakness associated with the coronavirus infection.

Eat a variety of fruits

Make sure to start your day with a plate of fresh fruits like pomegranate, orange, apple and papaya. You can include other fruits of your choice as well.

Drink warm milk

Drink warm milk with turmeric before sleeping at night. Milk helps in strengthening the bones and removing the weakness from the body.

Eat a variety of vegetables

Consuming vegetables is essential for the body. One must eat different types of vegetables during their lunch and dinner. 

Eat protein and antioxidant-rich foods

Eating a protein-rich diet is important for a healthy and speedy recovery. Eat things that are easy to digest so that the weak body does not have to work hard to digest the food, instead the energy is spent in healing process.

Steam inhalation
Taking steam with plain water 1-2 times a day has proven beneficial in treating symptoms like cold, cough and congestion. Performing steam inhalation may help in decreasing the respiratory issues, congestion issues in the nasal passage and airways.

Other things to be kept in mind


Keep having your multivitamins, vitamin C and zinc tablets as recommended by the doctor. Do not discontinue the medicine only because you have tested COVID-19 negative. Having multivitamins regularly can help in removing the toxins from the body.

Stay hydrated

Though you might not feel like having a lot of water, it's absolutely important to keep yourself well hydrated. Apart from water, you can also drink coconut water, juices etc.

Don't put pressure on yourself

Even after your COVID report comes negative, do not put too much work pressure on yourself. Some problems might persist even after a negative report, so walk a little and do not exercise much for a few days.

Keep distance

Even after recovering, keep a check of your oxygen levels and keep your distance from your family members for a few days. Wear a mask at home and rest for at least 10 days after your corona report comes negative.


Perform lung exercises

It's of utmost importance that you perform lung exercises after recovering from COVID to strengthen your lungs. From simple yogic breathing exercises to blowing candles and using the spirometer, one can choose from various lung strengthening exercises.


Stay positive

You are a warrior and have battled a severe infection. But sometimes, even after recovery, you might feel anxious, depressed or traumatised about what has already happened. To take care of your mental health, make sure to meditate and do things that you like to keep yourself positive.

Prone Position Helped 82-Year-Old Woman Beat Covid-19 Without an Oxygen Cylinder

Team HealthCult

82 year old Vidya Devi from Gorakhpur has beaten the coronavirus and is setting up an example for everyone. By using the proning method, she increased her oxygen levels to 94 from 79.

What is proning?

Lying on the chest and stomach position, or on the sides, is considered to help the body get air into all areas of the lungs rather than lying flat on the back, according to experts. Called the proning position, the technique has proven to be an effective measure for a long time in the treatment of patients with acute respiratory disease syndrome (ARDS).




Vidya tested positive for Corona earlier this month. Her elder son, Hari Mohan Srivastava, said, “My mother tested positive and we kept her in home isolation. One day her oxygen levels dipped to 79 and everyone in the family was worried. However, we did not give up and made her lie down in the prone position with stomach down towards bed. Gradually, the situation improved and the oxygen level rose to 94 within four days.”

“The entire family then tested positive but we did not lose hope and tried to keep each other in a positive frame of mind. We took precautions and medicines after taking advice from the doctor. Now, finally the entire family has recovered from the deadly virus,” Mohan said.
