Almost a month ago, none of us knew as much about COVID-19 as we do now. And every day we get more information and clarifications that give us a better understanding of what this invisible enemy is and how it works.
In this sense, a Hospital in the USA created a Virtual Reality video in which it shows the effects of the SARS-CoV-2 virus on the lungs.
One thing is for sure, we are all tired of hearing about this pandemic. But, unfortunately, we are still going to have to deal with it and the news about it for some time to come.
In our country we currently have 2,995 positive cases, 43 people died and 22 patients recovered.
We don't know for sure when it will all end, what we do know is that it will be sooner if each of us does his part.
On the other hand, of the various information that exists, namely online, it is necessary to know how to filter what is true. Determine what is alarming, what is constructive and which helps us to understand the problem, without affecting us, more, the emotional state.
Video shows in Virtual Reality the effects of Coronavirus in the lungs
When accessing information about COVID-19, it is extremely important to analyze the sources, in order to filter what is, and is not, true and useful.
Thus, as a visual clarification, the George Washington University Hospital together with Surgical Theater, they developed a 360º Virtual Reality exhibition. The video shows how the SARS-CoV-2 virus works and therefore affects the lungs of infected patients.
It should be noted that the Surgical Theater is an entity directed towards Virtual Reality in the scope of medicine, in the sense that it develops 3D images for clinical purposes.
You can see the demonstration in the following video:
In the video we can see how the virus spreads, infects and how it lodges in our lungs. We can also see other areas that are infected, which can cause difficulties in the patient's breathing capacity.
The Doctor. Keith Mortman, head of thoracic surgery at George Washington University Hospital, one of those responsible for the project, says that even if people recover, COVID-19 may leave marks that affect long-term respiratory capacity.
In short, it is one more way to get a sense of the risks, so that we can all continue to do what is up to us. Behave preventively, follow DGS guidelines, protect yourself and others.
