In Great Britain, a man was hospitalized because he drank five liters of water daily to get rid of the symptoms of the coronavirus, writes "Daily Mail". As noted, with this amount of fluids, Luke Williamson flushed almost all sodium from his body. This almost led to fatal consequences for him.
Luke's wife said that her husband had been feeling ill for a week and was advised to drink more fluids. One evening he went to take a bath, but when he got out he fell. His wife was unable to enter the bathroom, as the door was locked, but immediately called "Ambulance".
The medics arrived after 45 minutes and the man did not answer for 20 minutes. He spent several days in resuscitation on a breathing machine. Doctors concluded that his actions led to brain swelling.
