Koru Hospital General Manager Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology Specialist Dr. Ali Özön pointed out that the Covid-19 virus also damages many other organs such as the heart and brain, as well as the lungs.

Emphasizing that damage increases the risk of long-term health problems and various symptoms are seen in patients, Özön warned against complications after Covid-19.

It is stated that a significant portion of patients with Covid-19 face various symptoms and complications within the scope of the early and late effects of the disease.

"Discomfort can be seen in young people"

Exp. Dr. Ali Özön stated that those who experience COVID-19 symptoms are mostly elderly people and those with chronic diseases, “However, even young and healthy people may experience different diseases weeks or months after infection. Cough, fatigue, shortness of breath, joint pain, chest pain are the most common signs and symptoms that occur over time. Long-term signs and symptoms may include muscle pain or headache, rapid or violent heartbeat, loss of smell or taste, memory, concentration or sleep problems, rash or hair loss.

Koru Hospital General Manager Ali Özön listed the organs that could be affected by COVID-19 as follows:

Heart: Imaging tests performed months after recovery from COVID-19 have shown that even people with only mild symptoms of COVID-19 may have permanent damage to the heart muscle. This may increase the risk of heart failure or other heart complications in the future.

Lungs: Often associated with COVID-19, the pneumonitis can cause long-term damage to the small air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs. The scar tissue that occurs can cause respiratory problems in a long time.

Brain: Even in young people, diseases such as COVID-19 stroke can cause Guillain-Barres syndrome, a condition that causes seizures and temporary paralysis. COVID-19 can also increase the risk of developing Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease.

"

 "Increases the possibility of clustering and clotting in blood cells"

COVID-19 disease increases the likelihood of blood cells clustering and clotting.
