(ORDO NEWS) — The doctor has debunked the worst coronavirus myth that scared many people. She spoke about whether COVID-19 is actually causing dire consequences.
Even this winter, the coronavirus pandemic has caused panic around the world. Immediately after the disease began to spread, terrible rumors began to circulate about it on the Internet. For example, that the virus remains in the human body for a long time and therefore can provoke the emergence of various chronic diseases in the near future.
At the moment, it has not yet been scientifically proven that the coronavirus causes serious consequences even after a full recovery. This was stated by the immunologist and professor Alla Volokh in her interview.
To date, there is no evidence that coronavirus can be in the human body for a long time and provoke the occurrence of chronic diseases. The doctor also added that the disease primarily affects the nervous central system, eyes and testicles, but this is not yet proof of the scientists’ theory. The virus can remain in these organs for some time, but this does not cause other diseases.
A severe form of pneumonia, as well as the use of strong drugs to treat and find a person under a ventilator, negatively affects the human body. It is because of this that some residual effects can be observed in the lungs of people who have had coronavirus.
It is worth noting that, as practice has shown, severe consequences are observed only in those people who, even before infection, suffered from various chronic diseases. Experts will still conduct additional research to establish how strongly the coronavirus can affect the human body in such situations.
