Allergist-immunologist Vladimir Bolibok called a way to reduce the risk of coronavirus infection in an interview with Sputnik radio.
The specialist noted that people with COVID-19 suffer the most from lung problems. Coronavirus infection affects the respiratory system, therefore the quality of the air that a person breathes affects the risk of infection and the severity of the course of the disease.
Bolibok stressed that the course of all respiratory diseases becomes easier if the air is saturated with oxygen. At the same time, dirty air increases susceptibility to all viral infections.
The doctor urged Russians to constantly provide an influx of clean fresh air – to ventilate well, thoroughly clean the apartment and clean the rooms from dust. “First of all, you need to clean your bedroom. In all other rooms we are awake and can control the composition and quality of the air, and if necessary, we can either ventilate or leave the room, ”said the specialist.
Earlier Bolibok disclosed the danger of a long course of coronavirus. According to him, this form of the disease has been described in people with weakened immune systems. As the specialist said, the manifestation of chronic coronavirus infection is not associated with the virus or with the virus strain, but with the patient’s condition. “They are not sick with the most severe form, but they keep circulating the virus itself for a long time, because their immune system cannot get rid of this virus in any way,” he explained.
