The director of the Moscow Gamaleya National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology, Alexánder Guíntsburg, has stated that becoming infected with coronavirus can cause significant damage to the body. The well-known Kremlin scientist has criticized the advice of some doctors about contracting COVID-19 in order to obtain antibodies.
“I don’t understand at all how this can be said. ‘If you get sick you will be protected’, this is fundamentally incorrect. People are disabled“, has affirmed Guíntsburg, who also believes that many doctors” and even some academics ” You are wrong.
Guíntsburg, director of the scientific institution that manufactured Sputnik V, clarified that the coronavirus can cause problems in various organs and that recovery can last up to six months. “Nobody knows where this immune complex will be deposited. In the brain, perhaps, in the liver and in the lungs. In the lungs, sure, because everything passes through the lungs and blood vessels, “explained the expert.
Guíntsnurg already made clear last May his position on vaccination against the coronavirus, stating that people who were vaccinated against COVID-19, but still infected, have milder postcovid syndrome than those who were not vaccinated.
