People with certain diseases should be more careful about their health against the backdrop of the upcoming frost in the central part of Russia. Therapist Nadezhda Chernyshova warned about this.
According to her, people with chronic pulmonary diseases, such as bronchial asthma, are at risk.
“There is even a separate form of bronchial asthma - cold, when a sudden and rapid inhalation of cold air causes an attack of bronchial asthma,” Chernyshova told ridus.ru.
People with viral infections, including coronavirus and flu, and other colds should definitely be taken care of, the doctor added.
In addition, sudden changes in temperature adversely affect the health of people with cardiovascular diseases, in particular those with coronary heart disease.
“Such people need to build their day in a very gentle way, avoiding prolonged exposure to the cold and heavy physical exertion,” Chernyshova advised.
Earlier it was reported about a sharp cold snap in the regions of Central Russia, in particular Moscow and the Moscow region. In hotel districts of the capital region, the air temperature this week may drop to minus 27 degrees.
