The virologist warned that people who have recovered from the coronavirus may experience such irreversible changes in the lungs as fibrosis. In addition, the risks of heart attack and stroke increase, which often lead to patients becoming disabled.

Similar consequences arise regardless of whether people have been hospitalized or not. In addition, in most of those who have recovered, these symptoms are reversible.
