IHT against COVID-19 Corona Virus

According to this WHO report: https://www.who.int/docs/default-source/coronaviruse/situation-reports/20200301-sitrep-41-covid-19.pdf?sfvrsn=6768306d_2 -

“Oxygen therapy is the major treatment intervention for patients with severe COVID-19. All countries should work to optimize the availability of pulse oximeters and medical oxygen systems. Mortality in those with critical illness has been reported as over 50%, thus implementation of proven critical care interventions such as lung protective ventilation should be optimized.”

Since oxygen can help during infection, this means that IHT (Intermittent Hypoxic Training) conducted before infection can boost immunity, strenghten the cardiopulmonary system and significantly reducing the risk of serious complications during infection.
