India is reeling from a new wave of COVID-19 cases and with 1 lakh case recorded in one day, the situation has become alarming. Experts believe that this time the virus has different symptoms. The second wave of coronavirus is spreading on a rapid scale, infecting even healthier people.
Previously, the symptoms of the new coronavirus were fever, dry cough, and fatigue. However, this time around, doctors are witnessing rare symptoms, which can be called new symptoms of COVID-19. Several studies have suggested that pink eyes, gastronomic conditions and hearing loss are the new symptoms and should not be taken lightly.
New symptoms of COVID-19
According to doctors in Gujarat, 40% of COVID-19 patients visited them with a complaint of diarrhea, body pain, stomach pain and vomiting.
A study in China found that pink eye or conjunctivitis is a sign of COVID-19 infection. People may develop redness, swelling, and the eye will become watery. 12 people infected with a new strain showed this symptom.
If you have observed ringing or some kind of hearing loss in the recent past, it could be a sign of COVID-19. A study published in the International Journal of Audiology said infection with COVID-19 can lead to hearing problems.
Researchers found 56 studies that identified an association between COVID-19 and hearing and vestibular problems. They pooled data from 24 of the studies to estimate the prevalence of hearing loss to be 7.6%.
According to doctors, many gastrointestinal disorders also occur. A new study says diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, nausea and pain are signs of coronavirus. If you are having digestive discomfort, you need to get tested.
