Neglecting bed rest at the first stage of the disease threatens a person with the fact that his recovery from infection will be delayed for a longer period. Doctor Shuppo, a scientific adviser of clinics for immunorehabilitation and preventive medicine, also noted: “If a person endures illness on his feet and does not allow the body to recover, then he risks getting complications.”
The doctor clarified that CNS involvement can be ARVI in cases of improper treatment. The resulting neurological or cognitive impairment can range from mild and temporary to much more severe.
“Various complications arise after coronavirus, flu, and even ARVI, from hypomnesia and decreased alertness to dementia in the elderly,” the doctor stated.
Shuppo recommends people who feel the first symptoms of the disease to give up all physical activity and lie down; this is the best thing to do when ARVI begins.
