Aim: Purpose of our research is to establish the increased incidence of asthma with adolescent age group
Methodology: A cross-sectional, school-based study carried out amongst 1200 children. In
our study, we took into consideration about various demographic patterns like lifestyle
patterns, health issues, as well a comparison between asthmatics and non- asthmatics.
Comparison between the two groups was done by analysing data using Statistical Analysis
Software 25.0.
Results: Among a final sample of 1198 participants, the prevalence of self-reported asthma
was found to be 8.2%. Various characteristics were found significantly different between
the 2 groups including the gender, the weight and dietary patterns. Self –reported
asthmatic were more likely to be males, overweight or obese.
Conclusion: Asthma disease remains prevalent among adolescents and requires higher
awareness and better guidance for its prevention and treatment. Further efforts should
focus on health promotion and as well as improved quality of life so as to prevent this
chronic disease.

COVID-19, the global pandemic affecting economic developments has been regarded as severe pulmonary dysfunction disease. The disease has caused significant mortalities all around the world. The reports suggest that major reason for patients’ death are multiple organ failure, sudden cardiac arrest, severe respiratory dysfunction and body shock. These clinical conditions are majorly linked with COVID-19 comorbidities which are severely affecting disease severity. The present study describes pathophysiological findings associated with multiorgan effect of COVID-19. The study describes possible transmission route of the virus, responsible for gastro intestinal problems. The review of pathophysiological findings in COVID-19 provides a perspective to focus our therapeutic research strategies towards controlling the effect of pathogenic virus on indirectly targeted body organs. The present study will help in controlling disease morbidities as well as preventing long term effects of COVID-19.

A novel coronavirus, 2019nCoV is identified as the root cause for such a deadly outbreak causing respiratory illness. Due to its widespread impact on the global community, stringent measures were implemented to reduce the effect of the outbreak; self-precautionary measures like using face-masks, hand hygiene, and self-quarantine; environmental measures were insisted to follow and also surface cleaning and community measures to prevent the widespread. The pandemic evolved in China towards the end of 2019 and COVID 19 started to spread all over the globe like a typical wildfire capturing over 190 countries. It grows in a human body with common symptoms like common cold leading to respiratory problems and at times even death. The virus grows exponentially. So, based on the symptoms and the activity of the virus various measures have been implemented. The death rate peaked in the USA and Iran at the end of March and due to comorbidities and many medications has helped in cutting down the numbers. The rate of spread did not shoot up in countries like India due to preventive and cautious care and also due to reduced human contact from the countries with incidence or spread of the vector to other countries.
