Scientists have evidence that even after recovery from Covid-19, the virus can cause serious complications and changes in the body.
Covid-19 doesn’t just attack the lungs. Scientists already have evidence that the virus causes a multi-system disease that attacks various tissues and organs. In fact, Covid-19 can be compared to Lyme disease or tuberculosis. And the doctors have a hard task because the disease is new, so you need to be alert to all the signals reported by patients.
Coronavirus mainly attacks the lungs, leading to their inflammation – at least the main cause of death in patients infected with SARS-CoV-2. But it is not the diseases of the respiratory system that aggravate the patient’s condition. Diseases affecting the condition of blood vessels – increased blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease turned out to be more dangerous.
And here we get to the point, i.e. the complications of Wuhan virus infection observed so far. Patients develop blood clots, which, depending on their location, can even lead to death!
Is there evidence? Yes, they are already – a study conducted at the Leiden University Medical Center hospital, Erasmus University in Rotterdam and Amphia Hospital in Breda showed complications related to blood clots in up to 38 percent. patients with severe COVID-19.
Blood clots can form in the lungs, kidneys, intestines, liver or brain. And if they appear in the brain they can lead to stroke.
SARS-CoV-2 also causes symptoms in the form of loss of smell and taste. This is due to the impact of the virus on the human nervous system – patients may also experience confusion and disturbed consciousness. And urinary tract problems – in the early stages of a pandemic in China, it was found that from 25 to 27 percent. hospitalized patients who died of COVID-19 had kidney problems.
