Bisnis.com, JAKARTA – The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the world for more than a year. After going through various incidents, health professionals and the public began to understand the symptoms of the Corona virus or Covid-19 when it infects the body.
Knowing the symptoms of the virus helps you stay awake and take the necessary steps after you become infected with Covid-19. Fever, fatigue, or loss of odor are some of the common symptoms of the Corona virus that are known to the public.
However, the list of warning signs or symptoms of Corona virus now seems longer than previously thought.
Based on increasing cases and several studies, recently reported symptoms such as hearing loss, pink eyes, and gastrointestinal or gastric conditions may be indicative of Covid-19 infection.
Here are 3 symptoms of the latest Corona virus or Covid-19 that you need to be aware of, as reported Indian times.
1. Pink eyes
According to a study conducted in China, a pink eye or conjunctivitis can also be a sign of Covid-19 infection. The Corona virus is predicted to cause redness, swelling and watery eyes.
The study found that of all participants, 12 infected with the new strain of the virus developed symptoms of conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye.
Of the 12 participants, eleven individuals with signs of conjunctivitis had a positive Covid-19 test through a nasal swab (swab test), and two of them tested positive through a nose and eye swab.
The only possible explanation for the link between Covid-19 and the eye so far is that the eye can cause the transmission of Corona virus to the lungs.
2. Hearing loss
Hearing loss or tinnitus can also be a sign of a serious Corona virus infection. According to a study published in the International Journal of Audiology last week, it has been discovered that coronavirus infection can cause hearing problems.
Witnessing a continuous ringing or sound in one or both ears is called tinnitus. The most annoying thing is that only you can hear unpleasant sensations. The reason is that it is not something that is produced from the outside and no one else can hear it.
Some people even have temporary hearing loss when they are infected with the Corona virus. According to research, 7.6 percent of people affected by Covid-19 have some form of hearing problem.
3. Gastrointestinal infection
Covid-19 causes an upper respiratory tract infection. Therefore, many do not associate their gastrointestinal or gastric discomfort with Corona virus infection.
In some cases, researchers have noticed that diarrhea and vomiting may be signs of the Corona virus. Medical experts have warned that the public should not take the symptoms of diarrhea or vomiting lightly at a time when the world is shaken under the pressure of growing infections.
According to research, Covid-19 mainly affects the respiratory system. However, the virus can also affect other organs such as the kidneys, liver and intestines. Major hepatic and gastrointestinal manifestations may lead to elevated liver enzymes, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
