Many states in India have witnessed a sporadic increase in Avian Influenza (bird flu) cases lately. More than 25 thousand ducks, crows and migratory birds have died in states like Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Kerala. The news has started to trigger panic among the public. The people, still fear-struck with the Covid-19 infection, are afraid that the bird flu, which is also a viral disease, may turn into an epidemic.
Health experts have been advising people to take precautions rather than fear the viral disease. Doctors say that the risk of H5N1 virus causing bird flu is transmitted from human to human. This is possible only when one works closely with the infected species of birds. In humans, the bird flu virus enters through the eyes, nose and mouth.
According to Swami Ramdev, if you have to protect yourself from bird flu, then it is necessary for you to strengthen your immunity. For this, he suggests consuming the homemade Ayurvedic kadha or decoction along with performing Yogasanas daily.
