According tomedia reports, the new corona virus let us adapt to a new life, this life is controlled by a word, it is social distance. Because the virus is highly contagious, any form of assembly is prohibited in most places, as is the case for non-essential work. That’s why sporting events, including major events such as this year’s Summer Olympics and Euro 2020, have been cancelled or postponed.
Once the restrictions are relaxed, people may return to their familiar lives, but social distance measures will continue for at least the next few months.
But even when sporting events start again, they may not allow spectators to enter. Athletes’ years of training to improve their fitness may make them more susceptible to complications from new coronary pneumonia, a new study suggests.
Researchers from Germany and Italy have been studying how the disease affects athletes, and the results show that good health and overall health do not guarantee a mild illness when the disease occurs. If anything, athletes and their trained lungs are more likely to inhale viral particles and guide them to the lower part of the lungs, the study said.
The study was carried out by researchers from Berlin, Rome and Verona.
Studies have shown that breathing patterns during vigorous exercise change significantly with the increase in the number of ventilation, especially alveoli ventilation. “Professional athletes are particularly affected by extreme and long-term exercise, which is greater than the average person,” the study authors wrote.
Athletes’ “ideal lungs” are more likely to inhale infectious substances.
“Even SARS-CoV-2 is more likely to spread to the deepest part of the lungs and begin its attack there during intense exercise,” the researchers said. It is no accident that most professional footballers claim to have developed fever, dry cough and discomfort (and in some cases breathing difficulties) immediately after the last official game, or a few hours after the game. “
Studies have shown that even asymptomatic athletes may experience a worsening condition. They can push the virus from the upper and lower respiratory tracts, and they exhale suspended particles and then back to the suspended particles, which reach their lower lungs. In addition, the researchers point out that even if the competition is played without an audience, there may be mutual infections among athletes. “It is important to stress that vigorous exercise can lead to more frequent spit-out secretions, which may further lead to the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the environment, especially in the absence of strict adherence to the recommendation to keep distance. “
The study could become a reference in Europe, where countries are considering whether to resume suspended football matches. At the same time, it also affects the decision of other sports, especially team sports, whether to start again.
