People with COVID-19 have been reported to have symptoms like fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Lately, doctors have discovered some unexpected illnesses caused by New Coronavirus and most people don’t know about it yet. So be alert if you or your family members have any of the following symptoms.
It has been documented that some COVID-19 patients who have no history of mental health problems suffered from mild to severe hallucinations because the virus could attack the brain. So if you are hearing sounds, voices, or seeing patterns that are not actually there, it’s wise to get yourself tested.
2. Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting And Appetite Loss
Also, GI symptoms like diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting, can be a manifestation of COVID-19, resulting from the body’s fight against infection. Sometimes, even though there are no typical markers of a coronavirus infection like fever and chill, GI issues can come on as a serious reminder.
3. Loss Of Taste Or Smell
CDC has reported that the loss of taste or smell can be an indicator of COVID-19 infection. Studies have made a staggering discovery that about 65% of people who tested positive have lost their sense of taste and smell. Quite a strong predictor.
4. Headaches And Dizziness
Besides the COVID-19 symptoms that have been mentioned above, headache, dizziness, and confusion shouldn’t be ignored either. These neurological effects can be devastating for older adults because they can be easily overlooked as dementia or other diseases common with aging.
5. Hearing Loss
Although hearing loss is not that common when it comes to COVID-19 symptoms, awareness is important. Sudden permanent hearing loss does happen to some people who are infected with the virus, according to professionals.
