In a study published in Royal College of Physicians Clinical Medicine, patients with long Covid symptoms lasting longer than three months were treated with 10 (HBOT) sessions at 2.4 atmospheres absolute (ATA) in 12 days. The study reported substantial improvement in all categories. Many patients reported that their lives had been transformed (

They reported that the virus enters the brain through the cribriform plate above the nose. With a treatment protocol of 40 (HBOT) sessions, they reported actual repair of the virus-caused damage to the brain as well as excellent improvements in all measured functions (
