This greatly complicates the identification and quarantine of infected people. According to researchers, the number of asymptomatic carriers ranges from 25 to 50%, which probably explains the rapid spread of the disease on the planet.
Meanwhile, until recently, to the mainsymptoms of coronavirus include fever, dry cough and shortness of breath. Now experts warn that this does not always happen. As it turned out, some patients may suffer from loss of taste and smell, conjunctivitis, tremors, and even damage to the toes. Moreover, according to Gazeta.ru, CoVID-19 causes apathy and drowsiness in elderly people, and in children severe pains in the stomach and heart.

Coronavirus: complications Coronavirus fingers
This condition, which is easy to guess, is oftenconfusing doctors. According to The USA Today, in some infected toes, the toes acquire a blue or purple color. At the same time, patients feel a burning sensation and pain when touched. Complication is observed mainly in children and young adults with an asymptomatic coronavirus infection. Experts suggest that this symptom may be associated with a blockage of blood vessels or an inflammatory reaction of the body to coronavirus. However, the final reason is not known.
Since CoVID-19 attacks the body one at a time,One specific complication is attracting the attention of doctors around the world: tiny blood clots (thrombosis), which are found in the lungs or legs of patients. According to CBS News, the coronavirus CoVID-19 appears to cause blood clotting throughout the body. Some experts believe that this may help explain the high mortality from coronavirus - it is possible that it is because of the formation of small blood clots that patients have difficulty breathing. It is important to note that blood clots are found not only in patients in the United States. Thus, according to a report on the study of thrombosis, about a third of 184 Dutch patients with coronavirus in the lungs or legs had blood clots.
Strokes in young patients
Surely you have already heard disturbing messages aboutthat young people between the ages of 33 and 49 with a diagnosis of CoVID-19 die from strokes. Thus, the Washington Post report reported on dozens of similar cases registered in hospitals at the University of Thomas Jefferson in Philadelphia, New York University Langone Health and Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital in New York. Doctors found that severe strokes in young patients are an abnormality for neurologists, since the majority of stroke patients are on average 74 years old.
How to overcome coronavirus
More and more scientific resultsstudies suggest that coronavirus affects not only the lungs. Right before our eyes, CoVID-19 attacks the heart, brain, eyes, and even the infected toes.
