Novel coronavirus pneumonia is a new disease of the world.
It is a new disease of the crown pneumonia.
It shows the mystery and horror of the novel coronavirus virus.
It is not yet clear that the virus will harm human beings and the world.
， Therefore, we must not take it lightly.
Push this article today, hoping to arouse everyone’s vigilance and self-protection! The novel coronavirus outbreak should not end in a short time.
We should prepare for the protracted war and make good protection.
Human beings have nothing to do with the plague that ravages the world, and the virus is still spreading and spreading in all countries.
And those who survived the catastrophe are still struggling with illness.
It is reported that more and more “rehabilitated” patients have sequelae in European and American countries in the hardest hit areas…
1 Recently, many novel coronavirus pneumonia patients in Italy have experienced physical discomfort.
These patients are still accompanied by cough, fatigue and other sequelae after treatment.
After returning to work, some people can’t even take a short walk because of shortness of breath and muscle pain! Italian football star Maldini said that although he has recovered from mild infection, he has left sequelae.
“I tried to go to the gym for some training today, but after just 10 minutes, I couldn’t hold on.” a similar situation also occurred in Hong Kong.
(photo source: AFP) the infectious disease center of Hong Kong Princess Margaret Hospital tracked the first batch of 10 discharged patients, and it was found that the pulmonary function of three recovered patients was damaged by 20-30%.
The main sequelae is shortness of breath when walking faster, unable to exercise normally, and even unable to return to the previous work! Wang GuiQiang, director of the Department of infectious diseases of the first hospital of Peking University, pointed out that severe lung infection will develop into pulmonary fibrosis.
After some severe patients are cured, pulmonary fibers will appear, affecting daily life, and can only be transplanted in the late stage.
And at present, there is no specific drug for pulmonary fibrosis, and the condition is irreversible.
in addition to damage to the lungs, there is increasing evidence that COVID-19 also causes sequelae to the liver and kidney of the infected person.
After the infection, Scarface, the legendary American rapper, gradually recovered, and the symptoms have disappeared, except for the worsening of renal failure.
At present, he is undergoing dialysis treatment, but experts say that the recovery of kidney injury is probably far away.
Two months ago, some studies pointed out that kidney damage was common in patients with novel coronavirus infection.
The paper, entitled caution on kidney dysfunctions of 2019 ncovpatients, studied 59 infected patients from Wuhan, Huangshi and Chongqing.
The results showed that 63% of patients showed symptoms of renal insufficiency, and CT scan showed abnormal renal imaging in 100% of patients.
(photo source: medrxiv) experts in Britain and Canada also found that 8% – 12% of the novel coronavirus patients in intensive care had liver or kidney failure and needed perennial dialysis treatment to survive.
Huang Bo, deputy director of the Institute of basic medicine of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, said that the liver and kidney damage of infected people may be caused by pulmonary dysfunction.
“When the respiratory function is impaired, the oxygen exchange is blocked, and other organs will be in a state of hypoxia, while the kidney that is particularly sensitive to oxygen often has serious functional damage.” 3.
In addition to the lung, liver and kidney, studies have found that many recovered patients have very serious central nervous sequelae.
The novel coronavirus pneumonia study in Huazhong University of Science and Technology showed that over 214 of the patients in 30% had neurological symptoms, and three cases were manifested as central nervous system symptoms such as headache, dizziness, disturbance of consciousness, acute cerebrovascular disease, epilepsy, etc.
Second, peripheral nervous system symptoms, such as hypoesthesia, anorexia, neuralgia, etc; Third, skeletal muscle injury.
Last month, a 56 year old novel coronavirus patient was confirmed to have COVID-19 in his cerebrospinal fluid.
His clinical diagnosis was viral encephalitis, and the central nervous system was attacked by a virus.
Although this situation is rare, it has occurred many times around the world.
(photo source: NHK) according to NHK, a 24 year old solitary man in Yamanashi Prefecture has a high fever after suffering from COVID-19 infection, accompanied by headache and weakness of limbs.
A few days later, the man was in a coma at home.
After being sent to hospital for rescue, he was diagnosed with meningitis.
PCR detection of cerebrospinal fluid was positive.
Experts say the novel coronavirus pneumonia is a very serious possibility of meningitis.
When the man woke up, he found that his memory of nearly 1 or 2 years had been lost! Novel coronavirus pneumonia is a major example of a novel coronavirus pneumonia virus that invades the central nervous system, says Moriguchi Takeshi, a attending doctor.
(image source: ANN) as for why patients lose memory, experts believe that this is because the part responsible for memory in the patient’s brain is damaged, resulting in memory loss and other sequelae.
According to the observation results of pathological tissue, pathological changes have taken place in the brain of many infected people: congestion and edema of brain tissue, and degeneration of some neurons.
There are many asymptomatic infected people with thrombosis into the cerebral vessels, which eventually lead to stroke.

damage to the heart, the damage caused by COVID-19 to the heart of the patient is not easy to ignore.
Novel coronavirus pneumonia left her with severe heart injury, “a patient who was 48 years old from Eastern London revealed severe heart damage.” I felt very cold for nine weeks after the treatment.
Later, the doctor told me that I had congestive cardiomyopathy (heart failure, enlargement of the heart, and heart failure to pump blood).
Novel coronavirus pneumonia may be a lifelong experience, but most people will gradually improve.
But some people may have pacemakers and even need heart transplantation.
JamesRussell, Professor of medicine and other researchers at the University of British Columbia, found that more than half of the critically ill patients who had 8000 new pneumonia cases had heart damage and even died.
Russell said that the complications will be more serious in patients who have entered the ICU, especially in patients with novel coronaviruss who have been ventilator.
They are likely to have problems with their lungs, brain, heart and muscles in the future.
“Assisted breathing is a double-edged sword.” not long ago, “black faced doctor” Hu Weifeng also had cerebral hemorrhage after using assisted breathing equipment.
His attending doctor pointed out that “going to ECMO is a near death.” unfortunately, he didn’t escape and just announced his death., It’s really sad! Some people may ask, why are there sequelae when the patients are cured? In fact, from a medical point of view, to evaluate whether there will be sequelae after a disease is cured, it usually starts more than 6 months after the disease is cured.
Because the human body has a certain self-healing, many times the body organs are damaged due to diseases.
After the risk factors are eliminated, the body can repair itself and return to normal without any sequelae.
But novel coronavirus pneumonia is not sufficient according to this standard.
After all, it has been less than six months since the outbreak.
Contrary to expectation that human beings are still having a gradual understanding of COVID-19, the unexpected sequelae are also reasonable.
Finally: in response to this new virus, cure is not equal to success.
It still needs time to verify whether it will leave serious complications..
