Internal medicine specialist Dr. Alexei Vodovuzov announced that the problem of combating post-recovery syndrome from “Covid-19” has become the doctors’ first task.
The specialist notes in an interview with Radio “Sputnik”, that about a quarter of patients who have recovered from COVID-19 suffer from a set of symptoms characteristic of this condition. Among these symptoms: shortness of breath, weakness, and changes in the sense of taste, which may persist in many of those who have recovered from “Covid-19”, but at different levels and periods.
He adds, doctors have noticed this problem since the middle of last year, but at that time the main task was to combat “Covid-19” and prevent its spread. With the beginning of the decline in the number of infected people, the need to find ways to treat post-“Covid-19” syndrome has arisen.
He says, “Approximately 10-25% of people recovering from” Covid-19 “, during different periods, suffer from about 20 signs of post-disease syndrome.”
According to him, many unreliable information is published on ways to overcome post-“Covid-19 syndrome”, which can lead to serious consequences for the body.
He adds, “They say, for example, that the lungs should be trained to blow balloons. But this is strictly prohibited to do, because it may cause more damage than the one caused by the disease itself.”
The specialist warned against resorting to self-medication, stressing the need to consult a specialist doctor. Because self-treatment can only be successful if the symptoms of post-“Covid-19” syndrome are mild and mild. However, to return to normal life, one must rely on information published by reliable medical sources. This information is intended for people recovering from “Covid-19” and published in several languages.
