New Symptoms Of COVID-19


Apart from the known symptoms of coronavirus like fever, sore throat, breathlessness, there are new findings by researchers and doctors from across the globe, as per the varying case histories. The latest to be heard it the COVID-19 symptoms outside the lungs. Scientists around the world have successfully indicated the effect of COVID-19 apart from the lungs or outside the lungs. These findings only state how now one should take COVID-19 as a multi-system disease and not a virus that only attacks the lungs. Aakriti Gupta, from the Columbia University in the US, as a part of her research, explained how she was in the frontline, studying the pandemic phase carefully, to understand the virus and its transmission activities further. “I saw patients experiencing blood clots, high blood pressure, even with no history of diabetes and heart and kidney injuries too. This indicated towards a possibility that COVID-19 was more of a multi-organ/multi-system disease and not just a respiratory disease.”

Blood Clotting: Non-Respiratory Coronavirus Symptom

As per a few studies published in the Journal Nature Medicine, a very majorly focused non-respiratory symptom of COVID-19 is blood clotting. As per experts, this happened due to an attack on the cells lining the blood vessels. It is said that once the cells are attacked, there is increased inflammation in the body, leading to clotting in the blood. As per studies, these clots can have some adverse effects on the functioning of various organs.
