India is currently experiencing a second wave of new coronavirus cases that are devastating for lives. Currently, the number of infected cases has reached 1,35,27,717, with 1,68,912 new cases appearing in the last 24 hours.
India sets a new record for the number of cases in a day. Needless to say, the new strain of the new coronavirus is much more deadly than the previous one, as people are reported to have contracted the new coronavirus even though they do not experience conventional cold and fever symptoms.
However, there are some unusual symptoms that you should be aware of, which are indicated as signs of the new coronavirus.
According to the World Health Organization, although coughing is one of the many symptoms of the novel coronavirus, a persistent cough is something you should be aware of.
The cough in this situation sounds very different from the normal cough and occurs quite often and sometimes similar to the cough of a smoker.
Pink eye or conjunctivitis is also a symptom that indicates the presence of the new corona virus in the body. This is not only listed on the WHO symptom list but has also been revealed in a study published in the US National Library of Medicine.
So if you have a case of pink eye, it is better to stay indoors and possibly have a COVID-19 test.
Loss of taste and smell
Another rare, but commonly known symptom that has been highlighted is the loss of smell and taste. Research even calls it one of the biggest symptoms for people who don’t have a fever or a cold.
In addition, other studies highlight that the loss of taste is specifically due to SARS CoV-2 attacking cells in the mouth and nose.
Hard to breath
Another symptom that is ignored or ignored is difficulty breathing or shortness of breath. COVID-19 is known to affect the lungs which affects our breathing. It has also been listed as one of the many symptoms of COVID-19. So if you feel uncomfortable breathing, it’s a good idea to seek medical help immediately.
Research has highlighted that if you face digestive problems such as vomiting, diarrhea, or stomach pain, it is actually a sign of an early phase of the disease.
This is caused by intestinal dysfunction leading to changes in gut microbes, and an increase in inflammatory cytokines.
Research has shown that the onset of the novel coronavirus can literally exhaust a person, leaving them feeling fatigued and fatigued.
What is surprising is that it is not only a prominent symptom, but also a long-term side effect caused by the novel coronavirus, with 66 percent of patients experiencing these symptoms.
Are you having trouble focusing or concentrating, or do you feel tired trying to use your brain too much? This brain fog is one of the common neurological symptoms caused by COVID-19 that appears in individuals even months after recovering.
