Lungs of people who periboli coronavirus can be restored for a very long time, said the Professor, Russian national research medical University named after Pirogov, pulmonologist Alexander Karabinenko in an interview with radio Sputnik.
The specialist noted that due to the infection hampered the work of the human respiratory system and affected his lungs. After the disease formed in the lungs fibrotic changes. “People are structural changes that require a long recovery,” said the doctor.
According to Karabinenko, the lung tissue can regenerate over time, but the timing will depend on individual characteristics of the organism of each person.
