Patients with a moderate course of coronavirus disease and without risk factors for its complications may well be treated on an outpatient basis, following all the recommendations of doctors. This was stated by anesthesiologist, professor Sergey Dubrov.
Among these recommendations, he named adequate nutrition, drinking a sufficient amount of fluids, symptomatic therapy with antipyretics such as paracetamol or ibuprofen (they are necessary if the temperature exceeds 38.5 degrees). As for vitamins, Dubrov emphasizes that every body needs them, and if taken in physiological doses, it certainly won’t be worse.
Dubrov categorically advises against being treated, using common advice from the Internet. There are popular “miracle” methods from radio waves to intravenous alcohol.
“We must understand and understand really that antiseptics, which have an alcohol concentration of 70%, kill the virus. But in order for the concentration of alcohol in the human body to be 70%, so as to kill the entire virus, then this is a lethal dose. The person will not survive. Therefore, such methods of scientific justification simply cannot have “, – explains the medic.
As for natural remedies for illness, the physician advises walking in the fresh air, moderate exercise, balanced nutrition, drinking plenty of fluids (at least 3 liters per day, if the patient does not have chronic heart failure).
And the main guarantee of recovery Dubrov sees a positive attitude.
“And then everything will end positively”, – he notes.
