Experts to answer all COVID related questions in an online series organized by Pune-based hospital

Pune, 7 Aug 2020: While people seem to have resumed their life in this new normal, they still seem to have many questions and worries. In its bid to address many issues that people are facing, the city-based hospital has arranged an online awareness discussion series for all.
HealYos and Sancheti hospital has arranged an interactive live series titled ‘The Frontliners’. The prominent people leading the first point of contact in the management of Covid-19 will be sharing the factual and relevant information about the pandemic. Anybody can join the live series on HealYos – Physiotherapy at Home and Sancheti Hospital’s Facebook page.
Rupal Sancheti, Director of HealYos which is a mobile-enabled Physiotherapy and Fitness startup, said, “As we continue to navigate through the  COVID-19 pandemic and its increasing effect on our lives, all of us are exposed to too much irrelevant information. This contributes to increased anxiety, fear, and uncertainty of the current situation. It is hence we decided to start these live sessions. We have planned around ten such sessions where eminent personalities like the commissioner of the city, renowned pulmonologist, etc will be coming and answering people’s questions.”
The first session is planned on August 9, at 5.30 pm on Facebook. It will be taken by Nikhil Jakatdar, Chief Executive Officer of Genepath Diagnostics. He will be talking about home testing vs. testing in a diagnostic center, interpreting a COVID 19 positive test, different methods of testing and its accuracy, what does a false positive mean, views around the management of COVID 19 in India, etc.
