(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists from France have discovered the relationship between coronavirus and thrombosis.

Scientists have established a relationship between severe coronavirus and thrombosis.
65% of patients undergoing treatment for coronavirus in hospitals revealed deep vein thrombosis. Among those who were in intensive care, the problem was diagnosed in 79%. In addition, two days after emergency care, blood clots appeared in another 15% of patients, despite blood thinning procedures.
From the very beginning of the pandemic, doctors learned that a new type of coronavirus infection affects cells not only in the lungs, but also in other tissues of the body. This includes, but not limited to, the esophagus, mucous membrane, nose, and heart vessels.
The observation involved 34 patients who were admitted to one of the French hospitals in late March-mid-April with coronavirus. Doctors monitored the condition of the veins and arteries of the infected.
The results of the study showed that more than 50% of patients had various forms of venous thrombosis. In 15% of cases, the problem began to develop several hours before the general symptoms of COVID-19 intensified. As a result, patients were admitted to the intensive care unit.
