One out of every 100 Corona Survivors is experiencing lung puncture. In scientific language it is called pneumothorax. The answer to what is this and why is this happening Internal Medicine Expert Dr. Narendra Saini Has given Dr. Narendra says that there have been some cases of lung puncture in patients recovering from Kovid.
In some patients, it has been found that due to layer damage inside the lungs, air moves into the upper lung (plura). Cases of pneumothorax have been found in corona patients who already have asthma, TB, or shortness of breath.
At times, corona patients develop respiratory distress syndrome, which makes breathing difficult. They breathe harder and the internal pressure increases. The pressure causes a hole in the lungs and air enters the plura. It is a dangerous disease. Breathing may also stop if not treated in time.

Secondly, there are electrostatic charges inside it, which attract the germs and stop them outside.
Such rechargeable masks are in discussion these days, but they are not yet in the Indian market.
In these, the electrostatic charge gradually dissipates. Masks in which this charge can be carried back are rechargeable masks. These are currently made in labs and have not come on the market.
