The beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic has put practical medicine in critical conditions, exposing the long-overdue problem of the lack of specific care for patients with acute pneumonia (AP). It is possible to foresee in advance that the mention of such concepts as a viral pandemic and AP in one bundle will be perceived by many readers as incorrect and contrary to modern scientific ideas in the section of lung diseases. However, the paradox and one of the main reasons for this situation is precisely the distortion of scientific concepts of AP, which differ from well-known facts and do not take into account the fundamental materials of medical science. As a result, today practical medicine in patients with viral lung damage does not have effective means of providing assistance, being limited to symptomatic medications and auxiliary resuscitation methods.
