The chief physician of KB MEDSI Tatiana Shapovalenko said that the coronavirus dictates its own rules, and during the period of colds and SARS, people's suspicion becomes even stronger.
She noted that people who suspect they have a coronavirus make a number of mistakes.
Infectious disease doctor Georgy Sapronov noted that the main problems arise when the coronavirus enters the lower lungs. Often, smears do not show the presence of the virus in the patient's mucous membranes, because it has already descended into the respiratory tract.
According to him, if a person felt bad and lay down, then this can aggravate the already weak ventilation of the lungs.
What should not be done to patients with coronavirus? Bring down the temperature below 38.5.
- Both bacteria and viruses do not do well at high temperatures. However, if a person has chronic diseases, it is necessary to bring down the temperature already at 38 degrees, the doctor noted.
Sapronov stressed that cough suppressants should not be abused, since they increase sputum production and increase hypoxia.
The doctor warned people with coronavirus against boosting the immune system, because during illness, the body can begin to destroy the affected lungs.
- Stop drinking plenty of fluids without affecting the immune system with honey, echinacea. Do not delay the visit to the doctor, thereby aggravating your condition, - emphasized Shapovalenko.
