Alas, British scientists don't know how to cure long COVID.

God's mercy nano-medication should be the last-ditch treatment for long COVID.
Nano-medication is based on:

God created man out of an extract of clay from ground.

In other words, nanoparticles of nano-medication are so-called

Universal Ligand (Antibody)

All glory belongs to God !

Guys listen if you are in long covid and tried everything but nothing worked well then you can try fasting ,, 16h/22h for 12 days to 1 month and then slowly start doing push-up workouts when your energy start getting back ,,
these 2 things became game changer for me ,,,
and for the supplements take NAC, antihistamine h1 h2 , vitamin c ,d in heavy dose and multi vitamins

Covid 19 or it's variants will never be fatal for any one and the patient never need to be hospitalized if the patient strictly follows a particular diet plan during the covid 19 infection, click over the budhha image and see the description box of the given video. It is my two decades experience of the hellish pain of pneumonia and inflammation . There are thousands of species of living things on earth, covid 19 is only fatal for humans, why? most of the animals never face inflammation severely like humans. why? Some patients have been facing long covid and some of them still didn't get rid of it completely. Why? A human body takes 15 days to get immunity against any virus but many covid patients didn't get immunity against it even after one and a half year later too. Why? The other thing, covid 19 is fatal only for 1 or less than one percent of the infected people, while 99 percent get survived with it and if the patients who are severely affected get ventilator and other facilities on time then the mortality rate would be less than that, so the main thing that has been killing the people it is not the virus directly, it is the severe inflammation. Who he survived this severe inflammation doesn't need to be afraid of any sort of covid 19 or it's variants. See the description box of the given video, it answers, all these questions..dear friends I was a very severe patient of pneumonia and inflammation and it's been three years and I won't face neither pneumonia nor inflammation now. but I follow my diet plan very very strictly..I want to ask the doctors, why don't I face pneumonia now, is the pneumonia virus no more exist in the atmosphere? If not then why? I tell you the reason because now my body doesn't act overwhelmingly on pneumonia virus thus if the patient's body doesn't act overwhelmingly on covid 19 virus he never faces inflammation overwhelmingly and he is safe.¢¢¥€[]] ¥¢¢©®™™~>><} {]] [€¥¢©®®

This is my number, my brother. May God keep you, make you happy, grant you success, grant you, force your mind, leave your family and children, protect you, and keep you away from all evil and bad. In heaven, with every riyal, you help us, Lord, and God is great, we are without food, my brother. God does not need you, neither you nor your family, for any creature, Lord, brother. We are poor orphans, and God is great. We do not have food, and we have to rent a house, and our lives are difficult. May He grant you success, make it easy for you, and bring goodness down upon you from the wide gates of it, O Lord.
