These manifestations are considered typical of the coronavirus. However with increase in cases of morbidity other symptoms come to light, - writes NV.
They are less common, so the appearance of one or more of them is not considered a sign of coronavirus. But it is still worth knowing about them.
Symptom № 1: Red eyes
The scale of the spread of Covid-19 in the United States is huge, so it was American doctors who managed to trace an interesting feature. Reddening of the sclera and conjunctivitis have been observed in some patients with confirmed coronavirus. According to the American Association of Ophthalmologists, this is due to the contact of the viral aerosol with the eyes. It is known that the coronavirus can enter the human body through the mucous membrane, so along with wearing a mask, frequent hand washing and the use of antiseptics, experts recommend wearing glasses to those who are at risk.
AAO notes that this symptom is observed only in 1-3% of patients with Covid-19. However, it should be noted if a person has at least one of the respiratory manifestations of the coronavirus.
Symptom № 2: Dizziness
Despite the fact that dizziness is not considered the main symptom of the coronavirus, there is still mention of it. For example, in the case of a 73-year-old resident of Thailand. A patient from Zhytomyr who fell ill with Covid-19 said that he felt dizzy at the beginning of the disease.
Dizziness accompanies many viral diseases: influenza, ARI, meningitis, acute herpes and others. But during a pandemic, this phenomenon can be observed in healthy people, because it has, among others, psychological reasons: for example, stress due to the flow of negative information, anxiety for loved ones, lack of sleep, lack of physical activity.
Symptom № 3: Indigestion and diarrhea
Cases of diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting have been reported previously in patients with severe Covid-19. However, recent studies, published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, indicate frequent disorders of the digestive tract in patients with mild form. Of the 200 patients at the Union Hospital in Wuhan, almost half complained of this symptom. And in 20% it was the first manifestation of the disease.
According to scientists, this discovery will expand the diagnosis by detecting the disease in people who do not have the main symptoms of Covid-19.
