Abdominal pain and increased fatigue may indicate infection with a coronavirus infection. This is reported by the Express edition with reference to the research of doctors.
A survey of 36 COVID-19 studies involving thousands of infected patients found that one in five patients experienced gut problems. “Stomach pain can be caused by a variety of reasons, but one of them is a virus infection,” said Dr. Mitch Wilson. She stressed that digestive problems often indicate that the patient is sick with something serious.
Another early symptom was called conjunctivitis, which develops in about three percent of patients with COVID-19. This usually happens when the infection spreads to the lining of the eye. Patients with coronavirus also complained of confusion that followed them for weeks or even months after they fully recovered. Reporters cited a study from Imperial College London, which claims COVID-19 has chronic cognitive effects and may affect brain function.
The final symptom reported by British journalists was fatigue. The scientists said that 52 percent of the 128 patients in the study reported feeling tired all the time. Drowsiness and a desire to rest did not leave some patients even 10 weeks after recovery. Fatigue has been identified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the third most common symptom of coronavirus.
In early November, scientists named delirium, a mental disorder that occurs with dimming of consciousness and impaired thinking and emotions, one of the early symptoms of coronavirus. The appearance of delirium in patients with COVID-19, as a rule, is caused by hypoxia, oxygen deprivation and other factors.
