The whole world is suffering from the coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 has rapidly spread all over the world. Since the virus is completely new-born, its symptoms and precautionary actions are not known yet. Some countries have bravely tackled the pandemic while some are still fighting with the virus. At present, most countries have indulged in finding a vaccine for the coronavirus. Most people have a common mentality that once they are cured of the virus it won’t affect them anymore. But in reality, it is proven that after the recovery from coronavirus, some of the most vital organs of the body are at a high risk of damage. You need to take more precautions in order to protect yourself. There are most common post COVID signs that indicate long-term trouble after coronavirus. Here we bring you some of the most commonly affected organs post coronavirus recoveries.
1. Heart Issues
The heart is the most prominent part of the body. Coronavirus affects the heart. Most of the people who recovered from the COVID-19, still have irritation around the heart. It affects almost every patient, even those who possess a strong immunity.
2. Lung Fibrosis
Lungs are the most infected part of the body from coronavirus. As per a study by the doctors, the virus first attacks the lungs and causes breathing problems. Most old age people and those who have poor lungs are immediately shifted on ventilators. Thus, one needs to take the utmost care of their lungs as any small disruption in breathing may be fatal.
3. Nervous System
Most of the patients of COVID-19 report the loss of smell and taste as their primary symptoms. This exhibits the downfall of the nervous system. This virus infects humans through the ACE2 receptor in various neuronal tissues, which affect the smell sense. Excess infection neutralizes the nervous system. We need to take extra precautions even after recovery and consult with doctors to avoid future critical problems.
4. Brain Fog
Recently it was found by the doctors in Japan that the patients may acquire swelling in brain tissues. Since then, the doctors are meticulously tracking the circulation of the blood for most of the patients. Another report revealed that a person infected with coronavirus had Myelin (a coating which protects neurons) in the brain cells. However, research is still going on the virus, but there could be a possibility of brain problem due to the virus.
5. Mental Health
Mental health issues are determined by a change in thoughts, feelings, and behavior. The mental syndrome can occur because of fear of COVID-19 infection, isolation, and loneliness. Mental health disorders can cause significant discomfort or impairment of personal functioning. So, it is very essential to keep calm and be optimistic.
Blood clots form a wall on the interior walls of the veins, which stops the blood flow. The clot is known as thrombus. The blockage of blood flow can be caused by vein injury or thickness of a body part (swelling). The formation of blood clots is known as Thrombosis. It is very dangerous for people suffering from diabetes.
Research and studies are being carried out by world-renowned scientists and doctors. It is said that the vaccine may be out by December 20. As it is well said that ‘Precaution is better than cure’, we need to take some precautions to be fit and safe.
1. Exercise Daily
Exercise is necessary for everyone in order to be fit and healthy. Exercise keeps the body active and also strengthens the immune system. A minimum of 30 minutes should be dedicated regularly for exercise.
2. Social Distancing
Every country is following the practice of social distancing as a precautionary measure against the virus. As the virus is highly communicable and also airborne in worst-affected regions social distancing is the most efficient way to stop the spread of the virus. A distance of at least 2 meters must be kept from each individual.
3. Healthy Eating Habits
As there are a lot of things that pose as a precaution, eating habits are the most important one. The food that we consume must be properly washed and sanitized. The food should be full of every essential nutrient such as iron, calcium, and all the vitamins. A balanced and well-planned diet could help in building strong immunity. Add fruits and green leafy vegetables to the diet.
The treatment of coronavirus is still under trial. Scientists all over the world are carrying out rigorous research on the vaccine of the virus. We have to take precautions and keep safe even after the recovery from the coronavirus. As soon as you realize any symptom of the COVID-19, you must consult a doctor without any delay. The general public should take it seriously, as ignorance will cause a deleterious result.
