India Mother Gives Birth to Twins During Coronavirus Lockdown and Names Them Corona and Covid

Published

A mum has named her twins born during lockdown ‘Corona’ and ‘Covid’ as a reminder of the pandemic.

Preeti Verma said the names of her little boy and girl, who came into the world last Friday, would remind her of exactly what was happening on the week of their birth.

Her baby boy is Covid, and his sister is called Corona, and Preeti said they would not forget the hardships endured during this time.

The 27-year-old, from Chhattisgarh, central India, said that the pandemic has also brought with it some happy memories.

She did admit, however, that she might change the names of her twins when they get older

Preeti, who also has a two-year-old daughter, said: “The delivery happened after facing several difficulties and therefore, me and my husband wanted to make the day memorable.

“Indeed the virus is dangerous and life-threatening but its outbreak made people focus on sanitation, hygiene and inculcate other good habits.

“Thus, we thought about these names.”

Speaking of the day her babies were born, she said: “Late night of March 26, I suddenly experienced severe labour pain and somehow my husband arranged an ambulance operated under the 102 Mahtari Express service.

“As no vehicular movement was allowed on roads due to the lockdown, we were stopped by police at various places but they let us go after noticing my condition.

“I was wondering what would happen in the hospital as it was midnight, but fortunately doctors and other staff were very cooperative.”

5 reasons why your breath smells bad

Published

Bad breath, is an embarrassing health condition that affects approximately 30% of people around the world.
It is normal to wake up with bad breath.

But what about when you’ve brushed, flossed, mouth-washed, and not eaten any spicy food like garlic, and are still finding that your breath is less minty, more malodorous?
Good oral hygiene must be taken seriously if you want to avoid halitosis, but it’s not the only factor that can play a part in the smell that comes out when you open your mouth. Here are 5 other things that can cause bad breath.

Cutting down on carbs

Cutting down on carbs and upping your protein intake can be a major factor in whether or not you have bad breath. This is because they cause your body to break down fat for energy and create ketones. The excess ketones put a lot of stress on your kidney.

Skipping meals

Whether it is a deliberate attempt or you’re doing it for religious reasons, skipping meals can have a serious negative impact on the freshness of your breath. Avoiding meals or fluid slows than the production of saliva leading to breeding of bacteria which causes bad breath.

Chewing too much gum

Chewing gums in the short term after eating spicy food is not harmful. It causes serious health issues in the long term because they contain hidden sugars that leads to the accumulation of sticky plaque on the teeth. This also encourages the growth of bacteria and its effects may be worse than those of dry mouth in the long run

Dehydration

Drinking the recommended dose of H2O on a daily basis has many beauty and health benefits such as keeping your breath fresh all day. Dehydration can cause halitosis because bacteria that live in the mouth tend to multiply as the mouth dries out.

Strep throat

Strep is a bacterial infection, not a viral one, and those invading bugs can cause your bad breath to smell bad, says Dr. Grbic. Not only that, but other kinds of sinus infections can turn into bacterial ones that produce a smelly, pus-like type of mucus
