Narcologist Ruslan Isaev explained how alcohol affects the coronavirus and why it can lead to a more severe course of the disease. The physician noted that alcoholic beverages weaken the immune system.
When paired with drugs for the treatment of COVID-19, this can lead to complications and unwanted consequences. The doctor emphasized the incompatibility of drugs and alcohol, especially when it comes to antibiotics. He explained that they alone can cause side effects. In addition, alcohol makes it difficult for drugs that prevent blood clots from forming. Since it increases blood clotting, the dose of drugs will need to be increased, Isaev said in an interview with Sputnik radio.
We will remind, the Russians began to buy antibiotics more often. Inna Kulikova, Director of the Department for Organization of Emergency Aid and Health Risk Management of the Ministry of Health, spoke about this. According to her, it is useless to treat coronavirus with drugs of this type.
