COVID-19 and its Concealed Ill-Effects

After natural calamities, coronavirus has subjugated humans. Reckoning them that nothing is invincible in this Universe and everything is destructible. Whether a cell or an infrastructure, Butterfly Effect governs it all. Whether tangible or intangible, it is still malleable. Despite such a high recovery rate, there are health complications that can’t be solved.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) synchronizes with covid-19 in many folds. Many people who have recovered from SARS have gone on to develop chronic fatigue syndrome, a complex disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that worsens with physical or mental activity but doesn’t improve with rest. The same can be stated for coronavirus. Such casualties are often observed in patients who recovered from it.

People who have severe symptoms of COVID-19 often have to be treated in a hospital’s intensive care unit, with mechanical assistance such as ventilators to breathe. Simply surviving this experience can make a person more likely to later develop post-traumatic stress syndrome, depression, and anxiety. Intrinsic care and attention is to be given to help such patients

COVID-19 can make blood cells more likely to clump up and form clots. While large clots can cause heart attacks and strokes, much of the heart damage caused by COVID-19 is believed to stem from very small clots that block tiny blood vessels (capillaries) in the heart muscle.

Other parts of the body affected by blood clots include the lungs, legs, liver, and kidneys. COVID-19 can also weaken blood vessels and cause them to leak, which contributes to potentially long-lasting problems with the liver and kidneys.

Even in young people, COVID-19 can cause strokes, seizures, and Guillain-Barre syndrome — a condition that causes temporary paralysis. COVID-19 may also increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
