— Some long Covid patients swear by hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which can cost more than $50,000 per person. Here's why some experts caution against it.

In pressurized medical-grade chambers, patients alternate between breathing pure oxygen through a mask and regular air. When you go from the former to the latter, your brain interprets the drop in pressure as a lack of oxygen, says Dr. Mohammed Elamir, a physician at The Villages, Florida-based Aviv Clinics. That triggers stem cell production and blood vessel growth in the brain, which helps the body repair itself in a variety of ways, Elamir says.

As you may expect. However, from January to May 2022, this trend faded. The likelihood that somebody who never or sometimes wore a mask would test positive was extremely similar to the chance a person who always wears a face mask would test positive. In other words, from January to May 2022, the risk of getting a COVID infection was nearly the same for those who did and didn't wear a mask. But...
