Come up with a solution to prevent or significantly reduce respiratory viral diseases in society.
In fact, this is one of the most popular medical problems, making a significant damage to economy. An adult is ill about 6 times a year by 7 days = 42 days a year which makes about 17% of all the working time.
COVID is only one of types of respiratory viral diseases.

What does it mean? Passage of water from one nostril to the nasopharynx to the other nostril, finally leaving the nose.
How is it performed? Example 1 (Hugh Jackman performing nasal irrigation), Example 2.
Why is it performed?
  1. To clean the nasal passage and sinuses.
  2. If you use warm water, it helps decrease the viral replication rate
  3. Reduce inflammation
Visit this session for more information on the effects of nasal irrigation.
Regions that practice nasal irrigation showed a lower incidence of Covid-19 during the first wave.

Mikhail Korsanov We recently conducted a trial in which nasal irrigation did fairly well. I will share a link when we publish it.
Meanwhile, here are figures from other studies.
  1. Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam had very few cases and deaths.
  2. Covid-19 cases and deaths in ASEAN countries.
  3. If you look at deaths/1 million, these countries are not ranked within the first 130 even though they are popular tourist destinations.
Long-term trials on nasal irrigation and its effects on COVID-19 are going on and results are awaited.

Vitamin C + polyvitamins + brewer's yeast

The method I use: vitamin C 2-3 g per day + multivitamins + brewer's yeast, 6 tablets per day, accelerates the treatment of respiratory viral diseases, so in most cases I recover in 2 days instead of 7. In addition, taking 1-1.5 g of vitamin C per day (3 doses) in moments of stress and severe fatigue and at an early stage of viral respiratory diseases leads to the cessation of the disease after a few hours or a day.
Why not use some system of early detection of such health conditions for each person and his early indicators to stop diseases at the start?
