Not getting enough sleep can increase the likelihood of contracting infections, including coronavirus, by 250%. This opinion was shared by the head of the Center for Sleep Medicine at Moscow State University. Lomonosov Alexander Kalinkin.

As Kalinkin said on the air of the radio station “Says Moscow”, Sleep is as important as nutrition and physical activity. When it comes to sleep, it is especially important to get up and go to bed at the same time, even on weekends. For most people, seven to nine hours of sleep is enough for proper rest.

With a lack of sleep, Alexander Kalinkin continued, immunity can dramatically decrease, increasing the likelihood of infection. People who sleep five hours a day have 250% weaker immunity compared to those who sleep about seven hours.

At the same time, it is better to refuse alarms, the doctor said. But gadgets that help regulate circadian rhythms and wake up, there will be no harm.

As for the coronavirus, scientists previously named among the risk factors obesity and heart problems. But the relationship between infection coronavirus and blood group, which was mentioned at the beginning of the pandemic, did not appear.
