The researchers assessed the possibility of treatment COVID-19 radiation

Russian scientists commented in the interview with "Izvestiya" the possibility of treatment COVID-19 with radiation therapy, expressing doubts about the safety of this method.

The possibility of treatment of coronavirus infection in a similar way previously made by scientists from the US and Canada. So, according to experts from the canadian Cancer centre Jack ady, low-dose x-rays can help against pneumonia, which is often a consequence of coronavirus infection, the study was published in the journal of the European society for radiotherapy and Oncology 6 April. The research group of the cancer Institute of Emory University (USA) has tested the experimental technique on ten patients with coronavirus and pneumonia, the result of irradiated patients recovered four times faster, with side effects, the authors did not reveal.

Scientists have learned about the threat of a malfunction of the immune system in people with coronavirus

Ill COVID-19 may have problems with immunity, is reported in the Preprint of the research scientists from the Institute of Virology of Wuhan on the portal medrxiv.

The named place with an increased risk of infection with coronavirus

In areas with poor ventilation the maximum risk of infection of the coronavirus, said virologists and immunologists, the words of which reports the newspaper "Izvestia".
