COVID-19 in an infection that has a clinical manifestation ranging from common cold-like symptoms and bronchitis to more severe diseases such as pneumonia, multi-organ, severe acute respiratory distress syndrome, and even death.
Below is snapshot of some of the signs Covid-19 can cause, including some that you don’t know about.
Blood: inflammation and fever may disrupt blood vessels, rendering blood cells prone to clumping while interfering with one’s body ability to dissolve clots.
Brain: dysfunction in the lining of one’s blood vessels and associated bleeding and clotting disorders may cause bleeding in the brain and strokes.
Hands: Burning sensation in the hands and limbs may be indicating Guillain-Barre syndrome, a very rare nervous system disorder may be triggered by an aberrant immune response to viral infection.
Eye: puffy eyes and red eyes, sometimes known as pink eye, may result as a result of an infection in the conjunctiva, the tissue that lines the inside of the eyelids and covers the while part of the human eye.
Heart: cardiac injury may sometimes lead to irregular heartbeat, cardiac arrest, and heart failure, which may occur as a results of excess strain, inflammation of the heart muscles and blood clots, coronary artery, and overwhelming multi-organ illness.
Gastrointestinal tract: this is the infection of cells lining the digestive tract; it may cause diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and abdominal pain.
Liver: liver dysfunction may be a result of a direct result of the viral infection, or more likely because of immune medicated, circulatory blockage cutting blood flow to the organ, and systemic inflammation.
Limbs: Obstruction in large blood vessels may cause acute ischemia, insufficient flow in the legs.
Lungs: this virus targets the epithelial cells that line and protect the respiratory tract as well as the walls as the walls of the tiny grape-like air sacs, through which gas exchange occurs to oxygenate the blood.
Kidneys: this may result as a result from clots and impared blood supply, or as a direct result of infection.
Nose and Tongue: While the virus can cause the sneezing and runny nose typical of a common cold, causing an abrupt full or partial loss of the sense of smell known as anosmia.
Skin: small red dots and purplish discolorations on the legs and abdomen are part of a complex category of so-called paravirtual dermatoses that may result from the person’s body immune response to the virus, superficial blood-vessel damage beneath the skin.
Toes: purple rashes that resemble chickenpox, measles, or chilblains may appear on the feet, especially of children and younger adults.
