Alcohol should not be used as a measure of prevention of infection of the coronavirus, or a cold, as this will cause extra strain on the heart and “could end badly”. About the Russians said the chief psychiatrist of the Ministry of health of Russia Yevgeny Bryun, reports “Interfax” with reference to the program “Pozdnyakov” on NTV.
According to him, information about the positive impact of alcohol on the body with a cold — “myth is on the verge of a criminal mind.” The psychiatrist explained that the use of alcohol during a cold, flu or coronavirus can induce cardiac arrest. For the same reason you cannot go to the bath with a cold, said Brun.
