It was a whatsapp doc a friend of mine received. I expected it to be fake-news but shared the idea here anyway as some on this forum seem to have quite some knowledge of how this virus works.Someone said you can test your self by holding breath in 10 Seconds. I think this method for a severe cases and not for a mild symptoms.
I saw a number of videos of peoples who have a virus and they all have a common symptoms descriptions of something stock in their throat and couldn’t spited it.Honestly I had this symptoms but I never had fever or coughing. I don’t know what the heck is going on.
The WHO has specifically debunked as false some claims that have circulated on social media, including that a person can tell if they have the virus or not simply by holding their breath; that drinking lots of water will protect against the virus; and that that gargling salt water will prevent infection.Someone said you can test your self by holding breath in 10 Seconds.

If gas exchange were so bad exchange of Co2 was inefficient they are intubated on a ventilator. Before that they would have a resp rate of 30-40 and obvious resp failure. There would be no doubt this is a serious problem to anyone including the patient. I’ve never thought about it tho. Good question. I think we are more efficient removing CO2 in dire situations then oxygenating. If that makes sense.
