At the height of the COVID-19 epidemic, which has spreaded almost in the entire world, advice on what to do to protect ourselves from coronavirus infection is welcomed for all of us. So, it is not bad to read the advises of Professor Wong Kin-Chung from Hong Kong, who advise us how to protect ourselves from infection from the coronavirus, but also how to beat it in case we are already infected.
Even if you are hospitalized for an infection with COVID-19, you will not receive treatment specifically aimed at the coronavirus. Only supportive therapy is available. So don’t be disappointed if you can’t get to the hospital. “Do the things I will tell you to do today,” said Professor Wong Kin-Chung.
Every member of your family should rinse their mouth with salt water when entering and leaving the house. Use cold water, not hot water. Cold water will narrow the blood vessels in the mouth and throat, reducing the chance of viruses entering the bloodstream.
Salt water will stabilize the s-protein on the surface of the virus, which makes it difficult to attach to mucous membranes. In order to enter our body, the coronavirus must first bind to certain specific proteins in the membrane and then multiply.
Therefore, rinse your mouth often. It will be even better if you use mouthwash with something containing alcohol.
If you have a positive test but cannot be admitted to a hospital, isolate yourself at home. This means a separate room! And wear a mask all the time! Your family members must also wear masks at all times. If you stop the drops, you probably won’t infect anyone.
Thoroughly clean your home using 75% alcohol. Clean every corner and even the furniture. Alcohol kills the virus, as well as high temperatures, so use warm water above 60 degrees to wash clothes.
This virus cannot withstand heat above 60 degrees. For shoes and clothing that do not need to be washed in hot water above 60 degrees, use a disinfectant.
If your test is positive but you are in good general condition, drink plenty of water. The water should not be too much, but a few sips are enough. The body must be constantly hydrated.
Garlic, ginger and onion also have antiviral properties. You should consume them as raw as possible. The best of them is ginger. Take the tea from it, this will help blood circulation, which in turn strengthens the immune system.
A good immune system is essential, whether a person is hospitalized or at home.
Hot chicken soup is a typical remedy for colds and flu, which is even recommended by doctors. Eat it often. Take a large dose of vitamin C, 4000 mg per day.
Vitamin C affects the self-reproduction of the virus and can stabilize the outer surface of blood vessels, which in turn makes the chances of infection in the lungs lower.
Drink red wine (not white). Red wine contains polyphenols, which act to protect tissue from inflammation. This is in line with the treatment recommendations issued by the Chinese health authorities.
Small amounts of aspirin (5 to 20 mg) may also be helpful. In addition to being anti-inflammatory, aspirin reduces blood viscosity. According to the information available to us, the higher viscosity and the reduced rate of blood circulation are not good for the immune system and support the recurrence of the virus.
In Chinese medicine, the herbs astragalus, codeonopsis, and American ginseng contain flavonoids that protect cells from serious damage.
The key is not to stop eating healthy. If you do not have an appetite for heavier foods, do not eat it. Eat whatever you want. While eating, you have control over the problem. Do not keep urinating. You need to go to the toilet many times a day in normal amounts.
