Monkey-pox is posing no major threat as of now says Dr. Joshi while speaking at National Conference on Reproductive Endocrinology (NCRE) 2022 organized by Pune Obstetric & Gynaecological Society (POGS)
Pune, July 30: “COVID has disrupted our lifestyle and there has been an increase in cardio-metabolic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. As per one medical report in 2017, there were around 4 million diabetes-related deaths around the world and in 2019 the deaths had increased to 6.8 million. We need to be ‘Aatmanirbhar about our own hormones and change our behaviour to counter cardio-metabolic diseases. We must take care about the food we eat, eat less, slowly and on time and indulge in physical activities like Yoga and exercise,” said Padmashri Dr. Shashank Joshi, Endocrinologist, Diabetologist and member, Maharashtra COVID Task Force, during the National Conference on Reproductive Endocrinology (NCRE) 2022 organized by Pune Obstetric & Gynaecological Society (POGS) at Hyatt Regency today to discuss the various topics under the subject.

“As of now there are no Monkeys or poxes around us so there is no major threat of Monkey-Pox in India even though there could be mild and mini outbreaks. We are also done with COVID but people working in healthcare and private workspaces should take precautions,” Dr. Joshi added.
He also opined that one should not be dismissive about ancient Indian medicines and therapies, which can work wonders. “We need to rework on our ancient Indian therapies, which were tweaked during the Mughal and British invasion and utilize them for a productive lifestyle,” he said.
