The virologist opposed the restrictions due to COVID-19 Therapist, immunologist Irina Yartseva said in an interview with NSN that the recipe for how not to get sick is simple and available to everyone. “A negative factor can be stress, irregular work hours, poor-quality food, a person does not have time to walk and breathe fresh air. Vaccination is indicated for weakened people, at risk for those who cannot take care of their health. And the chance for such people to get sick is much higher. If a person lives outside the city, he has a sparing regimen, goes in for sports, then all viral infections, and not just coronavirus, immunity can easily be overcome. Such people can do without a vaccine, not get sick and not become spreading infections,”the immunologist voiced her position. Irina Yartseva shared her experience of existence during a pandemic. “I follow my sleep regimen, I managed to take my family to the sea, where there was good rest, sun and fruit. I don’t smoke, I don’t go to bars and restaurants. I am outdoors, ventilate the apartment, humidify the air. And everything allows us to say that my immune system is resistant to any viruses. If a person is driven out, on the nerves, smokes, there are concomitant diseases, then the immune system pays attention not to viruses, but to other points, it simply is not enough,”explained Irina Yartseva.
