Swiss doctors attributed fatigue, loss of smell, shortness of breath and cough to the long-term symptoms of coronavirus, according to the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. Doctors have introduced the term "long-term COVID-19" in their circles. To better understand this phenomenon, a group of doctors and epidemiologists from the University of Geneva, the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG) and the General Directorate of Health of the Canton of Geneva have created a COVICARE monitoring and counseling system for patients with COVID-19 who do not require hospitalization. Researchers regularly called people on outpatient treatment and inquired about their well-being. Under their supervision were 669 people aged about 40 years. As a result, scientists came to the conclusion that after two months, almost a third of patients with identified coronavirus had one or more symptoms. The most common symptom was fatigue. “In addition to physical pain, many were very worried about how long the symptoms would last. These questions still remain without a clear medical answer. At the current level of knowledge, it is important to listen to people and support them,” said Dr. Maissam Nehme. Earlier, therapist Olga Burlakova said that the consumption of foods that change the acid-base balance in the body increases the risk of COVID-19 infection. According to her, maintaining the acid-base balance is necessary for the normal course of biochemical reactions, the optimal functioning of enzymes and the preservation of immunity. As Burlakova clarified, the greatest danger is represented by products made from white flour (cookies, buns), cow's milk (butter, sour cream), refined sugar, as well as alcohol, strong tea and coffee.
