Scientists have named the factor facilitating the course of coronavirus. The researchers published their findings in the British Medical Association’s journal Gut.
According to experts, the type of intestinal bacteria and their number affect the severity of the coronavirus, and also partly determine the immune response to the disease. Scientists believe that by maintaining beneficial gut bacteria in the body, it will be possible to alleviate the symptoms and severity of the virus in patients. They emphasize that it is possible that the persistence of some of the recovered symptoms even 80 days after their first appearance may be due precisely to the imbalance of the intestinal microbiome. According to experts, it causes a violation of the immune system and leads to the long-term consequences of the coronavirus.
Earlier, Chinese doctors said that three quarters of patients who have recovered from COVID-19 have lingering symptoms and complications caused by the disease. According to experts, 63 percent of patients complain of fatigue or muscle weakness for a long time after the illness. 26 percent report sleep problems, and 23 percent report anxiety or depression.
