Online COVID – 19 Consultation in Nepal
Posted on : October 18, 2020 by Clinic One on COVID-19
Looking at the rapid rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in Nepal, online COVID-19 consultation has become a necessity.
Catching the COVID – 19 disease seems inevitable at this point, and the lack of isolation centers and hospital beds has led many Nepalese to self-quarantine at home.
This has increased the confusion and anxiety on what to do and what not to do during isolation.
Since COVID -19 patients aren’t able to physically visit a doctor, an online COVID – 19 consultation is definitely the best option for patients to manage their symptoms and stress smoothly at home.
COVID-19 patients are placed in quarantine immediately when they test positive for the virus. They will not have access to people or family members to talk to.
They will be all alone, which can lead them to get depressed or even try to commit suicide. So, online consultation is very essential for COVID patients.
Not only that, they will have access to digital resources, which can be very helpful for them to get reliable information through doctors from different fields.
They can ask for information related to COVID – 19 or ask questions on other medical topics or their existing diseases or new symptoms. Therefore, online consultation can improve their mental health and satisfaction with the service.
Online consultation can help individuals who have questions on whether they have COVID-19. They can ask questions such as:
- What is the COVID-19 virus?
- How it came to be? Myths/misconceptions related to it?
- How does a person catche COVID-19?
- What are symptoms of COVID-19?
- What are possible preventive measures against Covid-19?
- News on VACCINE of COVID-19
- Any kind of medical questions, etc.
These can be answered by doctors of Clinic One Kathmandu.
Why do we need a consultation, both physical and online?
Online consultation has aspects, such as maintaining a distance of 2-meters, NO face masks (since in online consultation you don’t have to leave your house), washing your hand (since you are at your home, we get easy access to soap and water), that is essential to decrease the number of COVID-19 patients.
It can help a Covid patient or his/her family to talk to each other during self-isolation or quarantine.
We humans are a social being. We need society (i.e someone to talk to). Talking to someone, a psychiatrist or a doctor or even a friend can help us to have peace of mind.
Talking can also lower your chance of getting depressed or committing suicide, especially during an ongoing pandemic.
But, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we haven’t been able to leave our house.
Therefore, online consultation can help us solve that problem. It can help us to get answers to questions related to our health.
Talking online has gotten a bad reputation throughout the years because of social media such as Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, etc.
Teens or even some adults, only talk online and do not talk to their family or friends.
That’s why some people are skeptical about online consultation. But, during an ongoing pandemic, it has become the only safest way of communication and consultation.

What are the benefits of Online consultation in Nepal?
Online medical consultation has existed for many years, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it has spread far and wide.
WHO (World Health Organization) has also suggested and urged people to use more online health and medical consultation during ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Online medical consultation can help not only individuals but society as a whole to minimize the number of COVID-19 cases. It can help the general public as well as public health workers to reduce the number of COVID cases which can decrease resources in use, which health workers can direct to people who actually need it.
It can help COVID patients as well as people who are at home during the self-isolation period to talk to doctors and get questions answered related to one’s health and questions/myths/misconceptions related to COVID-19.
It can be cost and time effective because you don’t have to leave your house and make an appointment with a doctor.
Hence, if there you have any questions related to the COVID-19 symptoms or need a call help (psychiatric), please don’t hesitate to contact the Clinic One Kathmandu.
