Vaccination protects the lungs.
In the United States, doctors showed how the lungs of vaccinated and unvaccinated patients with coronavirus look like.
According to the photo, in a person protected by the vaccine, the organs are in excellent shape, while in the other they are destroyed by the disease.
Hassan Camel, head of the intensive care unit at the University of St. Louis Hospital in Missouri, explained that healthy lungs should appear black on x-rays because the dark contrast between tissue and bone indicates that the organs are full of oxygen and are working well.
But in the picture, the organs of a person unvaccinated from COVID-19 look milky white. This, the doctor says, indicates problems such as extensive damage and scarring, accumulation of mucus, and lack of oxygen.
According to Kamel, a patient with this degree of damage needs to be connected to an oxygen cylinder or even a life support apparatus in order to keep him alive.
The doctor recalled that the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable to coronavirus. Despite this, he admits, many of his patients are not vaccinated against the infection.
