A new strain – COVID-19 Omicron – does not react to antibodies that a person has acquired through vaccination or during the course of the disease. What to do if you want to stay on your feet or transfer Omicron without noticing yourself and the consequences for your body?
First, you need to make sure that you are not infected. Do yourself a test that will accurately determine whether you are sick or not. If everything is in order with you, then you should spend more time outdoors: walking in the park, near the sea or in nature helps to ventilate the lungs and prevent stagnant processes in the body. It is precisely for the reason that a critical mass of toxins accumulates in a person that immunity begins to weaken. Sports contribute to overall resistance: jogging accelerates and thins the blood, strengthening the heart muscle. At the same time, it is advisable to drink plenty of fluids, which will more actively remove toxins from the body. Also, it is very important to choose the right vitamin complex. It is desirable to focus on vitamin C, various types of vitamin D contained in fish oil, magnesium, zinc and vitamins B. It is advisable to drink sea buckthorn teas with various additives in the form of viburnum, barberry and raspberry jam with citrus fruits – lemon, orange. You can add tangerine peels. Abundant consumption of such teas reduces the likelihood of illness by 30%. Consume a high dose of vitamin C. Yes, and with a disease, they help to get back on their feet pretty quickly.
Finding out whether you are infected or not is very simple: you need to go to your doctor and ask for a test. The disease can occur both in a latent and in an open form. You may not know that you are sick. Also, if you get infected, then do not panic. You just need to follow the regime until complete recovery. After an illness, you should seriously take care of your immunity and there is a chance that later COVID-19 will not bother you.
How does Omicron work?
- First, the body temperature rises, which can stay at around 39.5 degrees for the first few days. This is due to the heavy viral load that the body is going through. But, it does not come to severe respiratory failure, as it was with the disease of previous strains;
- as mentioned earlier, the vaccinated get sick, because. The pathogen has more than 30 mutations in the S-protein, fifteen of which are in the receptor-binding domain. Thus, the pathogen is deprived of the possibility of effective binding to receptors and avoids exposure to antibodies produced from exposure to other strains of the virus;
- proceeds more easily than others, but compensates for this with ease of transmission from the carrier, which leads to an increase in the disease.
