The author of this message owns a series of publications for 2020-2023, in which this pandemic was called "COVID-19 - POSTCOVID SYNDROME". The editors of 6 major authoritative and specialized online magazines agreed with this name of the coronavirus pandemic.
Lesson one. None of the antiviral drugs known to date have shown the ability to stop the development of the acute viral phase of the process. This phase lasts 2-3 weeks, and we can call it "COVID-19".
Lesson two. The acute phase is followed by a chronic process that we call "POSTCOVID SYNDROME". This phase of the disease has a duration of 18-24 months, and sometimes more. And it is the main danger for those who have had a mild, moderate or severe form of the course. For some patients, it has the appearance of mild discomfort.
Lesson three. "POSTCOVID SYNDROME" is dangerous for the sudden development of thrombosis and related complications. As shown by the analysis of the development of the pandemic in many countries, 80-85% of patients suffer this infection in mild to moderate severity. And only 15-20% of patients due to concomitant diseases require hospitalization and round-the-clock monitoring by medical personnel. During this period of the chronic phase of the disease, it is necessary to monitor the most informative markers of the possible development of thrombosis: the dynamics of D-dimers, prothrombin time, fibrinogen levels, and the number of platelets in the blood of those who have been ill. In practice, such large-scale monitoring is not possible. As you know, the recommended treatment to prevent thrombosis is oral anticoagulants. And for detoxification, it is recommended to use plasmapheresis. However, both of these recommended treatments have a number of significant drawbacks and contraindications, especially with their long-term use.
Lesson Four. We offer an alternative method – "SYSTEM METHOD OF LEECHING” (SML). The proposed method is based on 30 years of experience in the use of SML in elderly people with multiple organ pathology and children treated at the Academy of Hirudotherapy in St.- Petersburg. Our experience in the treatment of "POSTCOVID SYNDROME" in the period 2020-2023 has shown the high effectiveness of SML.
Lesson Five. Many of our patients note that during the pandemic they were sick 2-3 times. This suggests that having been ill with one strain of coronavirus, the human immune system is not able to protect against other antigenic variants (strains) of coronavirus. These facts make you wonder, against which strains of coronavirus do you need to prepare a vaccine for the population? In addition, many materials have been proven and published on severe post-vaccination complications, including deaths or stillbirths in pregnant women who were vaccinated during pregnancy. In the author's article (Krashenyuk A.I. Pandemic "COVID-19 – POSTCOVID SYNDROME": A System Method of Leeching is a New and Effective Treatment. Journal of Virology Research & Reports, 2023, volume 4(2):1-12.) This problem is being discussed. And this topic is described in even more detail in the author's recently published book "COVID-19 - POSTCOVID SYNDROME". Ed. "ASTERION". SPb, 220p.
