Malysheva showed how to check the lungs for resistance to coronavirus


MOSCOW, April 9 – RIA News. Doctor and TV presenter Elena Malysheva showed three home tests that will determine the ability of a person’s lungs to “survive” the coronavirus. She published the corresponding video in Instagram.
The first test is to wrap your arms around your neck. “If you haven’t grabbed your neck, if your fingers haven’t come together, then you have obesity, and not just obesity, but snoring and respiratory arrest in a dream,” the TV presenter said. According to her, people with such symptoms are at risk.

For another test, you need to take a balloon and inflate it with one exhale. The diameter of the inflated ball should be at least 15 centimeters. If the resulting ball turned out to be of a smaller diameter, then the person has some kind of lung disease, Malysheva explained.

The last of the tests offered by the presenter is that it is necessary to put together the bent index fingers. If the fingers diverge, then the person is likely to have chronic lung disease, she says. “It can be a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, it can be sarcoidosis – there are a lot of diseases,” the doctor said.

Malysheva noted that people at risk need to strictly observe the regime of self-isolation.

At the same time, TV presenter subscribers questioned the effectiveness of such tests. Many indicated that they successfully pass them, but have long suffered from the diseases listed by Malysheva.

The World Health Organization on March 11 announced an outbreak of a new coronavirus infection COVID-19 with a pandemic. According to the latest WHO data, more than 1.35 million cases of infection have been recorded in the world, more than 79.2 thousand people have died.
