MOSCOW, 11 Dec - PRIME. The most dangerous coronavirus can be for people with untrained immunity, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Karaulov said in an interview with Aif.ru.
An immunologist, head of the Department of Clinical Immunology and Allergology of the Sklifosovsky Institute of Clinical Medicine, FGAOU HE of the Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University added that some people are sick with COVID-19 with practically no symptoms, others suffer the ailment hard. Sometimes this does not depend on the age of the patient.
A new coronavirus infection can cause irreparable damage to health if the immune system is not trained. This means that the body is not properly prepared to face the infection.
"I am a supporter of the reasonable use of drugs with immunomodulatory activity and vaccination against all respiratory diseases," the doctor explained and added that uncontrolled intake of such drugs is unacceptable.
He noted that the use of any medicines is possible only after consulting a doctor.
At the same time, Karaulov added that in such a situation, how well the drug is researched is of decisive importance; it is extremely unreasonable to rely simply on advertising.
The doctor stressed that vitamins help to achieve strong immunity, but they should also be taken after consulting a specialist. Two other important factors for healthy immunity are healthy sleep and the ability to avoid stress.
“We should try to watch less TV. And, of course, if you get sick, you need to strictly follow the doctor's instructions, keep chronic diseases under control. This will also help to avoid severe forms of coronavirus infection,” the specialist concluded.
