The conspiracy theorists also turned to ancient Egypt, but the petitioner passed by: no, you wouldn’t damage your brain with a stick

Lithuanian Internet users are also eager to share the liar created in Russian and German.

“In Egypt, this procedure (breaking the fragile blood-brain barrier through the nose) was considered a punishment and punishment for slaves. Today, this procedure is called the COVID test and it is explained that the aim is to protect you and those around you, ”says the illustration.

Social networks spread liars about the links between COVID tests and ancient Egyptian art

Hematatoencephalic barrier – a mechanism of central nervous system physiology that regulates metabolism between blood, cerebrospinal fluid and nervous tissue.

The barrier protects the brain from the entry of harmful substances.

COVID-19 testing is not a new way to test for disease.

National Center for Public Health (NVSC) has approved a description that mentions a number of ways to take a smear.

Nothing to do with testing

Saulius Ročka, the head of the Neurosurgery Center of Vilnius University Hospital (VUL) Santara Clinics and a habilitated doctor of medical sciences, explains: the blood-brain barrier mentioned in melagena is a particularly difficult place to reach.

“The blood-brain barrier is a cellular structure that is located between a blood vessel and the brain. This is the kind of thing that prevents many substances from entering the brain from a blood vessel. This has nothing to do with COVID tests. As far as I know, they are not taken from a blood vessel, “the professor explained.

“The stick is not inserted into a blood vessel, much less into a very small blood vessel in the brain, in order to reach that hemoencephalic barrier,” Ročka added.

He also dispersed other spreading liars about possible brain damage by taking a PCR smear from the nasopharynx.

“Is it possible to pierce the brain by inserting a stick into the nose? The same probability as stabbing any part of the head with a stick is possible only if there is a hole there.

Such a hole can only occur due to an extremely rare, congenital developmental disorder that a normal person does not have. In that case, if we could still hit that hole while starving, then yes, maybe it is possible to pierce the brain, ”said the professor about the possibility of brain damage.

He explained that the possibility of brain damage during a PCR test could exist unless a person had a birth defect.

“The structure of the nose has nothing to do with the brain. There, inside, is still a bone. In that case, if there was a birth defect and no bone there, maybe it would be possible. However, there are maybe two or three people all over Lithuania with such birth defects. Even if the test rod is inserted very deeply, it is impossible to damage the brain, “the doctor emphasized.

Advanced ancient Egyptian medicine

The fragment of papyrus used to create the melagienus really depicts a medical examination of ancient Egypt – a visit to an ophthalmologist.

This is a fragment of a fresco discovered in Thebes necropolis, later transferred to papyrus. The work belongs to the reign of the 19th dynasty.

The drawing does not depict the punishment of slaves, as the liars claim.

The practice of medicine in ancient Egypt was truly advanced.

In Greek times, Egyptian physicians had an excellent reputation.

In the second book of History, Herodotus describes Egypt and the medical knowledge of its physicians.

Herodotus mentions that the doctors were divided according to specializations: some treated the feet, others treated the teeth, and the third treated the eyes.

The Egyptians realized that the disease could be treated with medication. Male and female physicians specialized in certain areas.

Yet the Egyptians emphasized the importance of cleanliness during treatment.

Ophthalmology was one of the most important fields of Egyptian medicine.

Most likely, this specialization was purely non-invasive.

Although there are claims that cataract surgery was performed in ancient Egypt, scientists have not found any sources to confirm this.
