Immunologist: air quality affects the risk of contracting coronavirus

22 January , 09:31Society
Since those infected with COVID-19 most of all suffer from lung problems, and the virus itself, first of all, affects the respiratory system, the air quality affects the risk of infection and the severity of the disease, says allergist-immunologist Vladimir Bolibok.

“The more oxygen it contains, the easier it will be for a person to endure respiratory diseases, including coronavirus infection”, - the doctor said in an interview with Sputnik radio.

Dirty air, on the contrary, increases susceptibility to all viral infections, including covid. Therefore, the expert points out, one must try to constantly provide an influx of clean fresh air.

According to him, it is necessary to especially carefully ventilate those rooms in which people sleep. And also regularly remove dust. This is important because a person spends a significant part of the day there.

"We breathe actively there, therefore, first of all, it is necessary to clean the bedroom. In all other rooms, we are awake and can control the composition and quality of the air, and if necessary, we can either ventilate or leave the room", - Vladimir Bolibok explained.

Previously, he gave advice on how not to get infected with coronavirus inside the family. The doctor emphasized that if one of the closest relatives fell ill with coronavirus, this does not mean at all that the whole family should get sick.
