According to research conducted in Ecuador, people living in high regions are more resistant to Covid-19 than those living at sea level. A study of critical Covid-19 residents living at sea level in Ecuador between March 15 and July 15, 2020, at an altitude of 2,850 meters, found that people living at sea level died at the end of the 21st day, while those living at high levels died after 39 days. Scientists said the reason is that high-level people are accustomed to less oxygen.

Research Those living in high regions are more resistant to Covid 19 than those at sea level

According to research published by the British Medical Association and Yale University in the science journal medRxiv, people living in high areas will be less affected by corona virus than those living at sea level.

The study, which has not yet been approved by the referee, examined 230 adult Covid-19 patients living at low altitudes (sea level) and high altitudes (2,850 meters) in Ecuador between March 15 and July 15, 2020, who were in critical condition, the Telegraph reported.

According to the research on Covid-19 patients who died, it was determined that people living in high regions were more resistant to Covid-19 than those living at sea level, while critically ill patients lost their lives after twice as long.

While it was stated that those living in high areas suffered less than the effects of Covid-19 on breathing because they were accustomed to low oxygen levels, the examination of patients in intensive care unit reported that those living at sea level died on an average of 21st day and those living in high regions died on an average of 39 days.

“Critical patients with Covid-19 admitted to the intensive care unit were found to be more resistant to the virus, while there was a significant improvement in intensive care processes,” the study said.
