DR ESHANI KARU MD - UPDATE COVID-19 X - (May 28, 2020) - REOPENING SCHOOLS
The Center for Disease Control yesterday issued their guidelines for schools to reopen in the United States. The purpose of the guidelines is to help students and teachers from contaminating each other and spread the Covid-19 virus to one another. They want the schools to work with state and local officials and meet the regulations that both have put in place for their location. We wouldn't expect the CDC to say anything less.
The CDC guidelines state that for older students wearing face masks is a must, except when doing physical exercise and then social distancing should be followed. Staying away from sick people is also encouraged. Remember to wash your hands for 20 seconds and make hand sanitizer available in the absence of soap and water and tissues for sneezing.
The school administration should see to it that all high touch surfaces, like stair banisters, need to be extensively cleaned once a day. The classrooms should be laid out so that desks are at least six feet apart and if possible, the CDC would like partitions between desks to maintain social distancing.
Finally, in the area of school lunch and snacks. Students are encouraged to bring their own food. Eating areas are to be disinfected after use as well. Staggered drop-off and pick-ups from school are encouraged to avoid overcrowding. And the CDC encouraged visible signage and public address over the school's PA system.
The website mayoclinic.org wrote as recently as April 20, 2020 that dizziness was one of the main reasons that patients go to see a doctor. Some of the symptoms may be a false sense, a feeling of spinning, motion, a feeling of lightheadedness or a feeling like losing one's balance and a feeling that you are going to fall. This feeling or episode may last a few moments, minutes or even days. A call to the doctor is certainly in order when an event like this occurs. Dr. Eshani Karu MD has written an article on the subject and it can be found here.
DR ESHANI KARU MD - UPDATE COVID-19 X - (May 21, 2020) - CDC: DIAL DOWN YOUR ANXIETY
Yesterday the Center for Disease Control announced that after several months of data derived from around the country that the likelihood of catching or getting COVID-19 from touching the surface area of objects is very low. Touching table tops, counters, grocery bags, mail, these are not high priority targets for catching the Covid-19. There will be more to come I am sure in the future, but for right now there are some basic things we all need to do to prevent the spread of this virus. One - wear a mask. Two, maintain social distancing of six feet with other people. Three - frequently wash your hands. My colleagues bought hand sanitizer in the grocery store, so it is becoming much more available. So let us all stay with it: mask, social distancing and keep our hands clean.
DR ESHANI KARU MD - UPDATE COVID-19 IX - (May 15, 2020) - GETTING A VACCINE - Part 1
The talk continues on a daily basis about COVID-19, quarantine, getting back to work, open the schools and fill the sports arenas with people, laughter and cheer. Much of the talk is that this won't be possible without a vaccine, which is not entirely true, unless we as a collective society make it so. There is a possibility that COVID-19 will burn itself out like SARS did. There is also the possibility that COVID-19 could become something season like flu, every time it gets to be November or December COVID-19 might reappear. There is also the possibility that a vaccine could be developed and if that happened then people could get the vaccine and all would return to normal.
What is a Vaccine?
Vaccines are substances that stimulate our immune system so that they are able to make antibodies the provide us immunity against a disease or in this case COVID-19. The US government has given its full support to speed up the process of helping public and private entities develop a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. Vaccines have to undergo research by scientists or inventors and experimentation is part of the process for developing a vaccine. There can be laboratory tests on animals at first and once there is success with animals, their attention turns to testing a potential vaccine on human beings. At the human level the scientists conduct "clinical trials".
There are three (3) phases that a vaccine needs to go through to get its approval.
There is Phase 1 in which just a small number of people are tested to see that the vaccine is safe. This might be as few as 5 people, but more than likely a greater number will be tested against COVID-19.
There is then Phase 2 in which the vaccine's effectiveness is evaluated. It's one thing to know if the vaccine has potential, but you also have to know how much of the vaccine is safe to give and what are the possible doses or dosing to over the COVID-19.
Then there is the final Phase 3 where the vaccine is put to the test by the thousands of people and the vaccine is perfected. In the case of COVID-19 the government and the people are not looking for perfection; we are looking for something effective.
DR ESHANI KARU MD - UPDATE COVID-19 VIII - (May 9, 2020) - ONCE YOUR QUARANTINE IS LIFTED
There are several cities that are lifting the Covid-19 quarantine. Some businesses are being allowed to open, albeit in a different form that pre-Covid-19. Restaurants are maintaining social distancing as best they can. The National Basketball Association has set up special practice procedures for their players that includes no more than 4 players on court at a single time with each player having an assistant coach wearing face mask and gloves to retrieve and throw them two (2) practice balls. Hand sanitizer, snacks, water and everything they need is put on the court so that they do not interact with the other players. Social distancing of 12 feet apart is their norm. Parks and hiking trails have opened with people wearing face masks and maintaining 6 feet social distancing is in effect. Yes it will feel uncomfortable for a little while to be meeting friends and strangers wearing masks and maintaining social distancing of 6 feet apart. This may be the new normal for several months, but we will adapt. I encourage all of us that when our first instinct is to "flinch" when something out of the ordinary occurs to you, recognize that you have reacted and that the reaction is something new that has occurred as part of the new normal. Smile that you have recognized it and move on with your day, confident in the knowledge that you have the ability to adapt.
DR ESHANI KARU MD - UPDATE COVID-19 VII - (May 4, 2020) - Covid-19 Test Kits and Testing
I have been receiving questions about Covid-19 test kits, as it relates to the news articles about a shortage of test kits with local county health offices, sometimes hospitals and general questions about Covid-19 tests.
There are 2 main tests that are in the field today. The first test deals with our RNA, the virus is measured using Reverse Transcription (RT) PCR (polymerase chain reaction) or the short term PCR test. This test is able to tell you whether or not you have Covid-19 if you are in the 2 to 14 day incubation period.
The other test measures your immunoglobulin (blood protein), is known as the IgG/IgM serological test. It tells us whether or not you have had the virus and takes 15 minutes to get the results. If you are interested in a more detailed explanation of the test kits and testing, please see my article on Medium.com.
DR ESHANI KARU MD - UPDATE COVID-19 VI - (April 25, 2020) - California Website Bullet Points to Protect Californians from Covid-19
California's Website has published several steps we should all take to "combat COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus) from spreading in California.
- Californians have been ordered to stay at home in order to slow the spread of the virus from person to person unless their jobs are deemed necessary.
- Covid-19 testing is now free for all medically eligible Californians.
- California students are able to study and complete their classes and still receive their free meals even though all schools are currently closed.
- The California National Guard has been assigned to work at California food banks around the state to ensure that Californians have a stable food supply and to avoid people going hungry.
- The State of California has distributed millions of N95 masks and other PPE personal protective equipment to health care workers across the state and in some cases across the nation.
- The State of California has made hotels and living travel trailers available to give people with no housing and others experiencing homelessness a place to live and quarantine so as to stop person to person contact and the spread of Covid-19.
Dr Eshani Karu MD - UPDATE Covid-19 V - What Are The Symptoms?
The United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) has told us on their website that people who have COVID-19 have a lot of different symptoms that go from having very mild symptoms to having severe illness. The CDC also tells us that the symptoms may appear as soon as 2 days into the illness to up to 14 days after the person was exposed to the COVID-19.
So the symptoms that we should all be aware of for ourselves and our loved ones include:
- High temperature - fever
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Shortness of Breath
- Difficulty Breathing
The CDC cautions that the virus may often be spread by people who are infected, but are not showing outward signs that they are infected.
People with COVID-19 may also have:
- Muscle Pain
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
Now at the same time we have all experienced a headache and sore throat. Some of us will cough after eating peanuts or a food with hot sauce if the food goes down our throat the wrong way. How do we know when to seek a medical doctor.
The CDC tells us the following emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If you have one of these symptoms get medical attention immediately.
- You are having TROUBLE BREATHING.
- You have a PERSISTENT PAIN OR PRESSURE IN THE CHEST
- You have NEW CONFUSION (disorientation) or INABILITY TO AROUSE (you are very sleepy and just can't get to the "I'm Awake" stage).
- You have BLUISH LIPS or a BLUE FACE.
These are not all the symptoms of COVID-19. When in doubt, please call your medical provider or doctor for advice.
DR ESHANI KARU, UPDATE COVID-19 IV - HOW IT SPREADS
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) tells us there is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus. They also tell us that there are definite action steps that we can taken to prevent us to being exposed to the virus and therefore prevent ourselves from getting sick.
The number one way that the virus is spread, according to our experts, is mainly from person to person. The virus is spread by people when an infected person through coughing, sneezing or even talking and their respiratory (talking, breathing, spitting) droplets of infected liquid land in someone else's mouth, nose or even inhaled through our nostrils and into our lungs. This occurrence can happen within 6 feet of one another. It is for that reason that the CDC wants us to stay at least 6 feet away from each other.
The CDC cautions that the virus may often be spread by people who are infected, but are not showing outward signs that they are infected.
DR ESHANI KARU, UPDATE COVID-19 III - IT'S NOT A LIFE SENTENCE
You can recover from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Catching the new coronavirus DOES NOT mean you will have it for life.
Most of the people who catch COVID-19 can recover and eliminate the virus from their bodies. If you catch the disease, make sure you treat your symptoms. If you have cough, fever, and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early - but call your health facility by telephone first. Most patients recover thanks to supportive care. If you want to come to our office, please call first to see if we are equipped to help you that day.
DR Eshani Karu, UPDATE COVID-19 II - Hand Sanitizer
The CDC, FDA and even the World Health Organization all tell us to wash our hands for at least 20 seconds several times during the day and that this is the best way to kill germs as long as you have a supply of soap and water. The reason you wash your hands several times during the day is because you are touching items around you that have germs and we are not always sure where the germs are coming from. There can be transmission from the germs to you and that is why the experts tell us not touch our face, in order to avoid this transmission.
If you are determined to make your own hand sanitizer, then it must be at least 60% alcohol in the finished product and have enough aloe vera gel in it to prevent causing harm to your hands through dryness and/or cracking. The normal ratio of items to do so using 99% isopropyl alcohol is as follows:
Do the following in a glass mixing bowl using 99% Isopropyl Alcohol and Aloe Vera Gel.
Wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds before you begin.
Put 140 milliliters (140 mL) of 99% Isopropyl Alcohol and 60 milliliters (60 mL) of Aloe Vera Gel and stir the ingredients together until you have a watery, but slightly thickened gel-like mixture. After mixing use a funnel to put the "hand sanitizer" into a sanitized container that you are sure is 100% germ free. A container that has been thoroughly cleaned in a dishwasher is a good choice.
Hand sanitizer or washing your hands. If you have soap and water, wash your hands for 20 seconds.
Dr Eshani Karu, UPDATE COVID-19
As I wrote a few weeks ago as it relates to COV-ID 19, hope is on the horizon in the form of potential treatments that have shown great promise. . The CDC talked about two drugs being investigated as a treatment for COV-ID 19 and it looks like hydroxychloroquine and zinc may be one of the answers. Hydroxychloroquine and zinc have shown good promise and the anecdotal information that has been shared with me has been very positive. The main reason that the medical community has not embraced the therapy is because there has been no double blind study on it, but that my / will change if the therapy continues to be effective. As I said to you before take to heart, and repeat to your friends and patients many times over. We must educate ourselves and it is being proven, the majority of people recover from COVID 19 without any treatment.
If you think you are having Covid-19 symptoms, call your healthcare provider. If you don't have a healthcare provide, call Eshani Karu, MD at (909) 487-0489 and ask what for guidance.

DR. ESHANI NIRANYA KARU MD TALKS ICON LASER
People often ask Dr Eshani Niranya Karu MD what type of skin conditions can be treated using ICON laser treatment?
The ICON laser is a very versatile medical spa treatment offered at Dr Eshani Niranya Karu MD and Dr. Randy Karu’s office. Historically it has proven to fantastic at improving several areas of appearance.
Fine lines and wrinkles on the face have effective treatment.
Dr Eshani Niranya Karu MD states that unwanted hair can be removed from almost anywhere on one’s face or body. Stretch marks, scars, including acne scars and those suffered during surgery can be removed. Skin changes, even those like age spots, sun damage, and inconsistent skin tone and textures can be treated successfully. Rosacea and capillaries near the surface of the skin will be removed, as well as Spider veins in the face, neck, and trunk may be treated successfully.
Tell us Dr Eshani Niranya Karu MD how does laser hair removal work?
The Medical Spa Health & Beauty uses the ICON laser to get rid of unwanted hair forever by sending short-pulse durations of laser generated heat through one’s skin and directly into active-growth hair follicles. The medical spa ICON laser light is absorbed by the pigments in the follicle that makes the hair follicles inactive and they will no longer grow hair.
Dr Eshani Niranya Karu MD’s medical health spa ICON laser will remove hair on virtually any part of one’s body, and it’s just as effective for small areas as it is for larger areas. Common treatment sites include the upper lip, chin, face, neck, bikini area, legs, chest, back, and shoulders.
